Some wireless microphone receivers are complicated to operate, but the Blink 500 RXDi is so technically advanced that it couldn’t be easier to use. There are no controls to adjust, but the device does a lot behind the scenes to ensure excellent performance. It operates on the interference-free 2.4GHz spectrum, and automatically hops channels to avoid static noise and audio dropouts. Pairing with transmitters is simple, and all of the complicated aspects of using wireless microphones happen seamlessly in the background, letting you concentrate on storytelling and getting a great shot.
Handheld gimbal, meet wireless sound.
Handheld gimbals have the amazing ability to deliver cinematically smooth video footage that makes it feel like the camera is floating, but one area where they suffer is audio. It’s simply too difficult to attach external microphones or wireless receivers without throwing off the balance of the device. The RXDi changes this story. It’s small and lightweight enough to remain mounted to your Apple device and won’t interfere with the motors or arm of your gimbal. You can finally capture perfect sound with your mobile gimbal footage when used with Blink 500 TX transmitters (sold separately).

The Blink 500 RX is a dual-receiver that was designed to be mounted to the shoe of a camera and can handle up to two 500 TX transmitters at the same time. The Blink 500 RXUC is very similar to the RXDi except it has a USB-C connector for Android smartphones or tablets and modern Apple Mac and PC computers. It works perfectly with handheld gimbals, too. All of the receivers can handle up to two Blink 500 TX transmitters at the same time.
