Probably won't get as much love as the cameramakers will, because audio isn't as sexy as RAW imagery, but this is a wonderful upgrade from the best wireless company in the business. Take head. Good sound will make your video or short film so much better than 90% of what you probably want to spend your money on.

You're right about that. Filmmaking and filmmaking websites are 90% based on image quality, dynamic range, 4K-6K RAW, low-light performance and other in-camera oriented subjects. I see it on websites all the time, people that are willing to invest $5000 - $20000 in a camera, but are reluctant to invest in proper audio gear.

What's up with the youtube ads? "Remove skin tags skintag-s.com" and diet ads, etc. Is this part of the new film school?

Yeah. That is a lot of cool right there. And really not too pricey for the features.

What does "on the appetite" mean exactly?

This looks like a great piece of gear though.
