Digital Camera World Verdict

The Lark M2 will be available to purchase from January 10 2024. If you’re a smartphone user then your new year resolution should be to track one down, especially if you want to record hi-quality audio when your smartphone is mounted on a gimbal.

In recent years Hollyland has been prolific when it comes to creating wireless mic kits for a range of cameras. At the end of 2020, they introduced the Lark 150 which featured an innovatively designed charging case that powered two clip-on wireless mics and a receiver that you could attach to a camera.  The lighter and improved Lark M1 followed 6 months later in 2022 and we were very impressed with its performance.

Just over a year and a half (and a couple of other Lark models) later Hollyland has unveiled the Lark M2, which like its Lark M1 predecessor contains two transmitters with a built-in mic and a receiver that you can attach to your camera.  However, the Lark M2 looks a lot different to the M1 and has some extra tricks up its sleeve as we’ll explain.
