Obviously was a mistake to phrase question as I did. I am in no way trying to take jobs away from professionals, I am starting out in the industry (looking to get into sound for work), but also like to do creative work on the side. I'm sorry I don't have the resources to hire or use professional sound recordists. I am simply trying to explain what I would need my equipment for. I don't see what's wrong with being both sound recordist and filmmaker, plenty of projects (documentaries and ultra low budget narrative have as much).
At this point its probably not even worth trying, and I do understand this is a little simple and mundane question to bring to professionals when there is so much info out there already, but that is exactly why I came here. I assume both of you were at one point buying your first wireless system, I assume you didn't become professionals overnight. Anyways, I apologize for implying that I do not need professional sound recordists and that I can do it all myself, because that isn't at all what I meant (if anything I am someone interested in sound who also likes to tell stories, I hope that's not off limits).
