Video review and test comparing the Røde Lavalier against the standard Sennheiser ME2. The Sennheiser ME2 is the lavalier that comes with the G3 wireless kit, which is quite popular for it's price and reliability. However, as with any kit piece, it's nice to upgrade. So I upgraded my kit mic to the Røde Lavalier, a relatively inexpensive and versatile mic. However, how does it compare to the ME2 that comes standard with the G3 kit? Watch and find out.
In this video I review the goods and the bads concerning the Røde Lavalier. While I am a fan of Røde mics, it is certainly not without it's drawbacks.
To skip all the introduction and go straight to the audio examples, skip to 1:58. I feature a few real world examples of the topics I discuss as well as a controlled test illustrating the tonal quality of the mic, it's noise floor, comparison of ambient noise and a clothing noise test.
A quick review of JokerBox from JokerBoxes.com It's an innovative Apple Box styled production bag that's far more useful than it seems. I've been using mine on set for the past few months since I picked one up. It's gotten to the point that I never go to a shoot without it. From carrying extra gear to being a small step stool, a seat, and a small table, it's become an essential for my productions.
Reviews and comparisons
Reviews of various film gear in real world examples and actual experience. I get annoyed by unboxing videos and reviews that simply cover the specs of a product and have never actually used the product in a real world situation or used them for any length of time.
