Digital Camera World Verdict

The Saramonic Blink500 Pro B2 kit enables you capture strong clean audio levels from up to 100 meters (if the transmitter mics have line of sight with the receiver). The supplied lavalier mics help reduce wind noise in challenging locations. The kit is compact and portable so will easily fit in your kit bag. It’s compatible with DSLRs or smartphones (though you will need a jack-to-Lightning adaptor cable for newer iPhones.) Highly recommended.
