The AVX-MKE2 SET includes a bodypack transmitter with lavalier microphone, the plug on receiver and all accessories to operate out of the box with camcorders as well as DSLR cameras. It features self configuring digital transmission which eliminates time-consuming radio frequency setup. The ultra compact receiver rotates around the XLR connector to avoid collision with other devices mounted on your camera. It switches on and off automatically with your camera - saving battery power.

as I wrote above highly recommenced worth every $$$ spent
I was slightly concerned about being on long shoots without batteries. I am currently in the middle of shooting another half hour special using only my phone and the Sennheiser. I've been on long shoots and the rechargeable batteries on both the receiver and transmitter haven't gotten close to running out of power.
CONSUMER ALERT FOR WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Most users do not need a license to operate a wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating a microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones
