Lapel Mic V-0625, at a suggested $19.99 retail, provides strong, accurate reception up to 25 feet for camcorder use. The omni-directional microphone records the subject's voice, while minimizing ambient background noise. It operates from its own built-in power supply using an included 1.35-volt mercury battery. The power supply unit clips on a waistband, belt or pocket.
Lens Cleaning Kit V-0795 cleans camcorders and digital and 35mm cameras. The system, at a suggested $6.95 retail, consists of a blower brush, a 1.25 fluid ounce bottle of specially formulated lens cleaning solution, 50 optical grade lens tissues and lint-free chamois cloth.
A 3-in-1 Cleaning System, at a suggested $9.99 retail, provides lens care for optical equipment that includes camcorders, digital cameras and 35mm cameras. The V-0798 has a pen-shaped main component that incorporates a concealed brush at one end to remove large pieces of debris from lenses, viewfinders and camcorder/digital camera monitors. The system includes a 0.25 fluid ounce bottle of cleaning compound and refill cloth tips, with the main component's pocket clip increasing carrying convenience.
