I will be attending a trade show in a couple of weeks. Like all trade shows it is full of vendors and thousands of people. This obviously results in plenty of ambient noise.

I want to shoot video for some posible interviews at the show and obviously the camera will have to be a few feet away from the participants to get a decent focus and backdrop. Will the HD1000 or HD700 buit in microphones be able to pick up the interview conversation amongst the ambient hustle and bustle of people all around talking?

I can take an external mic and attach it to the HD1000 but it would be a cabled mic which introduces it's own issues (people tripping on the cable comes to mind).

Thanks for your thoughts.

Sanyo have launched (in Japan) a wireless Mic system, theHM-W300. Though it was released alongside the HD1000, I don't think it is specific, but might do the job if you can find/source one in your domestic market.

"The Sanyo Digital Wireless Microphone System (HM-W300) is the world's
smallest and lightest wireless microphone system, with the sender and
receiver measuring just .5 inches and weighing approximately 1.5 ounces
each, including batteries. Connect the receiver to the voice recorder to
record sound remotely, or use it as a wireless speaker by connecting the
microphone to a stereo and the receiver to a speaker. The HM-W300 offers
maximum range (approx. 98 feet indoor/33 feet outdoor at 360 degrees
diameters) while providing the high quality sound. Available in Japan only."
