Cheape Solution Wireless Lav Systems
I'm planning to shoot a short video and in need of portable wireless microphone systems (transmitter+receiver). As you know, these gadgets are really expensive ($200+) and honestly beyond my budget. For the video, there will be two person talking while walking and I will be recording them with a DSLR. This means 2 sets of wireless systems and means at least $400. Since I'm not living in US and 1 dollar equals 3 bucks for me, it's really expensive. Renting is not a solution, because I'll be using it at least for a week and means same cost at all.
Question 1: Are there any cheap options without any interference? I was looking for Little DARlink, but still is not on the market.
Question 2: AKG has a cheap ($100) set for 2 transmitters and 1 receiver can capture both, and I already have a Zoom H6. But receiver is not working with batteries. Is there any possible option to feed the receiver with an external battery in a DIY approach of course?
