Designed to accommodate a broad range of applications, the EW 500 FILM G4 gives you the tools to adapt to various shooting scenarios. For hands-free interviews, the system includes a bodypack transmitter with a high-grade, miniature MKE 2 omnidirectional lavalier mic, which is sweat-resistant and easy to conceal. For man-on-the-street interviews or for wireless booming, the plug-on transmitter is ready to attach to a handheld or shotgun mic of your choice (both types of mics are available separately). It also provides 48V phantom power, giving you the option to use a condenser microphone.
The camera-mount receiver connects to a camcorder, a DSLR/mirrorless, or a cinema camera to capture crisp-sounding speech or dialog for projects ranging from films and documentaries to wedding videos, corporate spots, and hands-free interviews.
The EW 500 FILM G4 is backward-compatible with previous evolution systems, including EW 100 models, giving you the ability to mix and match G4/G3/G2/G1 receivers or bodypack, handheld, and plug-on transmitters.
