Digital Camera World Verdict

The RØDELink Filmmaker Kit is easy to use and delivers great-quality audio without the hassle of a wired connection and with the convenience of AA battery power. A great wireless microphone set-up for the serious filmmaker.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Like the popular RØDE Wireless GO, the RØDELink Filmmaker Kit is an audio transmission system that enables you to record high-quality audio wirelessly to your camera or other recording device. The Kit has three main components: the receiver, which connects to your camera via a supplied cable; the transmitter, which can be clipped onto a belt or slipped in a pocket; and the broadcast-quality lavalier microphone. 

Unlike the Wireless GO, the transmitter in the Filmmaker Kit doesn’t have a built-in mic, so you have to connect one for it to work (and you don't have to use the supplied microphone, if you need a different type of mic).
