Godox MOVELINK M1 Overview
The MoveLink M1 from Godox provides an easy-to-use and cost-effective entry into the world of hands-free wireless audio for a wide variety of content creators including YouTube and TikTok personalities, vloggers, mobile journalists, and more. The system offers an ultracompact clip-on microphone/transmitter, a lavalier mic, and a two-channel camera-mountable receiver to provide a portable, all-inclusive solution that lets you record a subject’s audio to a camera or phone with a 3.5mm input jack.
The tiny transmitter weighs less than 1 oz and features a built-in clip and an omnidirectional microphone, making it simple to attach it to a lapel or shirt for quick and easy, true-wireless audio. The M1 offers a digital frequency-hopping 2.4 GHz bandwidth system with a maximum line-of-sight range of 164′. For a more discreet look, you can use the included lavalier microphone and simply plug the mic’s 3.9′ cable into the 3.5mm input port on the transmitter.
The receiver features a belt clip that mounts to camera shoe mounts or smartphone shoe mount adapters (available separately). Its 3.5mm output allows you to connect to your phone or camera’s 3.5mm input jack. A 3.5mm TRS cable for use with DSLR/mirrorless cameras and a 3.5mm TRRS cable for use with compatible smartphones and mobile devices are included. The two-channel receiver makes it easy to add an additional transmitter (available separately) for applications with two presenters on camera at once.
Both the transmitter and receiver feature internal, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that will run for up to 6 hours and are recharged through their USB Type-C ports, which will also power the units if you have access to AC. Two USB charging cables and a wind cap for the transmitter/mic are included. Up to eight M1 systems can be used on set at the same time.
