I have a Rode Wireless Go and it's the reason my audio has so much static. I have this wireless microphone system hooked up to a Canon HF200. The microphone itself is in good shape. The wireless system sucks though. The microphone needs power in order for me to hook it up to my camera though. I was wondering what I have to buy in order to make my lavalier microphone wired and not wireless? My camera has a 3.5mm jack for external microphones. The microphone itself is MiCon-2 but I use an adapter to make it 3.5mm so it'll work with the wireless system.

Microphone 250.
Wireless System 200.
Are you talking about price? :confused: You don't need to spend even a tenth of that.

Here is a wired lavalier mic for four bucks (+ 26 cents), direct from China: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B07HL3FWQH/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all

Here is one for eleven bucks, fulfilled by Amazon, i.e. delivered from a US warehouse: https://www.amazon.com/Rovtop-Profe...icrophone&qid=1569870934&s=electronics&sr=1-4

You'll probably want a 1/8" mono extension cable as well (eight bucks): https://www.amazon.com/Parts-Expres...8"+mono+extension+cable&qid=1569871112&sr=8-3

You just need a "phantom kind" power adapter. Try the mike on a laptop since it provides power for biasing electrets. If it works fine a simple power adapter is not difficult to construct. There are also phantom power adapters which have a switch for low voltage instead of the nominal 48V, but first You should find out what voltage the mic can handle.
 
There are so many products out there for getting audio into camcorder and DSLR 1/8" jacks
Here's a shoe-mount example of one that will let you use any wired XLR or 1/4" source mic or line with phantom power along with all the settings and adjustments needed for professional grade camera audio


Marantz Professional PMD-602A 2-Channel DSLR Audio PMD-602A B&H


If you browse through that retailer's category for this kind of product you will find many, -even some of far lower price.
