I'm a camera / video guy. Every now and then I have an interview or a corporate shoot where I have to work solo, and that includes the sound.
I have been using the Rodelink wireless lav kits for a few years now and I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I've been looking at the workhorse Sennheiser G4, which would fit my use case perfectly. However, I find it a little hard to decide the configuration - I know I definitely don't want to use the ME-2 lav.
I am trying to decide between these options:
1. G4 512P with the MKE-2 microphone - around 700-800€
This would get me a decent microphone and a better wireless pack, and it's more cost-effective!
2. G4 112P, ditch the ME-2, and get a DPA 4060 separately - 850€+
This configuration costs more, but the DPA is excellent.
Now, my question is, whether the DPA 4060 is that much better than the MKE-2 to justify the price difference. I feel like the 512P kit is a better deal but I'm not sure. I've heard that the MKE2 is quite robust and would withstand some abuse, but it's also more difficult to hide. The wireless kit is secondary, however the 500 series sounds like a good bonus over the 100 series.
Feedback is greatly appreciated, and let me know if my question is stupid
