It seems redundant to call a wireless microphone “cableless”. But if there’s one consistency with the plethora of wireless microphones on the market, it’s that they need a cable to send audio from the receiver to the camera. The new Godox Virso still requires that cable, but for Sony shooters, the Godox Virso S doesn’t. Instead, it communicates with the camera directly using the multi-function hotshoe.
With that one exception for Sony shooters, these microphone systems are similar to other devices of this type. There’s a receiver that goes on the camera along with one or a pair of transmitters. Each transmitter features a built-in microphone and the ability to plug in a wired lavalier mic. The transmitters can also record internally to microSD cards for up to 400 hours of recording.
