I have a Panasonic HDC-TMM900K camcorder that I purchased exclusively for use for GT.  Unfortunately the omnidirectional microphone on top is...well...it's crap.  The light is also not the best.  That said, I can fix both of these things with a lavalier mic but to make those work I need....:

1ea phantom external power adapter
1ea 3.5" stereo input microphone jack

Now I looked up this site but there are a lot of options.  I have *no* idea what to buy for the power pack for the lavalier, nor do I know what type of lavalier mic to buy.   I'm at a loss and it would be cool if I could get some help.  I intend to ask for these for an early birthday present so I can take them to E3 for coverage, but I don't know what to ask for.   

Any suggestions?

I have no idea, but wouldn't it be easier to just use a boom mike with a cable?  It seems like you're just asking for more parts to fail with a wireless lapel mic.  I always assumed those lapel mics were better for studio type sit down interviews.  Wouldn't you need two or more for that kind of thing?

Hmm....I may be WAY overthinking this.  You know, one of those stick microphones with the GT box around it might be a far better idea.   biggrin
