Re: Why not use a better & cheaper mic?

All I want is a budget wireless system, not only for my NEX, but also for other equipment.

Why not something like: Zoom H4N with some sort of wireless connector, sends to wifi reciever on the Multi Interface Shoe

Or just a MiniJack input on some MultiInterfaceShoe adapter

Anyway this mic looks promising !

It is a huge pity that they didn't just add a simple line-level intercept jack for plugging in third-party sources.  Surely a typical Sony play:  from their perspective, if you wanted actual inputs, you'd find no choice but to buy the nearly $1k input module.  This is a strategy that says "we have a product at every level," which is another way of saying, "how much money do you have to spend?  We've got a price for that!"
