RODElink Filmmaker Kit Review
Recording great audio is an art in itself. However, it's becoming more of a forgotten art. Whether you're on set or covering an event, recording audio can seem more like a chore or a nuisance. If you have ever felt this way about audio, chances it had something to do with the wireless lav packs. From syncing issues to out of range hissing/hits, wireless lavs can be all kinds of wrong. Well fear not, the RODElink Filmmaker Kit will change the way you approach audio forever.
The RODELink Filmmaker Kit combines the latest technology with easy to use features that make working with their packs a walk in the park. These are just some of the key features found on their website:
- Series II, 2.4GHz digital transmission
- 128-bit encryption
- Up to 100 metres range*
- OLED display (on receiver)
- One button pairing
- Three level gain control
- AA battery or USB powered
- Includes broadcast lavalier microphone
Top 3 Benefits of using the RODELink Filmmaker Kit
1. No Fuss, Simple Pairing. ANYWHERE
2. Simple, audio adjustments
3. Long Lasting Battery Life
NO FUSS, SIMPLE PAIRING - ANYWHERE
This is by far one of the most compelling reason to start using the RODELink Filmmaker Kit today. All you need to do is turn the transmitter/receiver on, select the channel you want the packs to pair to and hit the WIFI button. That's it.
No searching for available frequencies, no fuss.
If this was the only thing the RODELink had to offer, it would be reason enough to add into your audio kit. Luckily, the kit is so good, it's not all that it has going for it.
SIMPLE, AUDIO ADJUSTMENTS
Both the transmitter and receiver both have a 3 level gain adjustment which gives you a good starting point to feed into your recorder.
Depending on your recorder's pre-amp, you can adjust the packs so that the mic becomes more sensitive and pick up a "louder" signal Just be sure that the level on your transmitter or receiver is not peaking, which could distort the audio coming into the recorder.
LONG LASTING BATTERY LIFE
The RODELink Filmmaker Kit comes with a set of AA batteries which can power the pack for over 30 hours. If that isn't enough, there is also a micro USB port on each pack that allows for external battery power.
From my experience, a four pack of AA batteries will last through a full weekend of shooting so I didn't have to worry about the packs running out of juice.
The RODELink Filmmaker Kit is an excellent piece of kit that I would recommend in any filmmaker's bag. Whether you're an event shooter looking for an easier way of capturing precious dialogue or an experienced sound recorder tired of having issues syncing wireless lav packs, the RODELink Filmmaker Kit can greatly improve results and make your job much, much simpler to do.
