Hi, I'm looking for a good wireless lavalier microphone to be used with a Canon HF G30. Ideally with a price under £300.

Thanks for any recommendations :)

Are you looking for just the mic or a lav kit (with mic, transmitter, receiver, etc.)?

Your options (and especially quality) are going to be extremely limited if you're looking for an entire kit.

Sorry yes I should have mentioned that I will need a full kit with receiver/transmitter.

Why will the options be so limited?

Thanks

I read your original post wrong and didn't see that it wasn't in US dollars. That being said, your budget is a little higher than I thought so you're not as limited as I suggested.

However, that budget area is still considered low-medium so there still are limitations there. I've gotten decent results from Sony and Sennheiser kits. Here are a couple:

And I've never worked with Shure lav systems before, but have had good experiences with their other gear. They have kits in that budget area as well.

I second the seinheiser kit have 2 of them and they work great...been using the g3 kit since 2010

I'll third the seinheiser. I have the ENG combo for the stick mic plus the lav. Great kit! Very easy to use.
The included lav is also pretty good. Much better then I would have thought
