Wireless Microphone Question.
I have a Nikon D5100.
I recently watched a video on Youtube where they were filming using a DSLR.
The guy presenting it had a small microphone attached to his collar and at one point he filmed the cameraman who had a kind of microphone wireless box receiver thing attached to the DSLR horseshoe.
I am also looking to do some video and I was wondering if anybody knows where i could find this kind of equipment.
Thank you so much for your time and look forward to your advice.

There's lots of options for wireless mics, here's a couple of models
You can plug them into the mic jack on the D5100 but if you're going to this much trouble you may want to add a dedicated audio recorder like the Roland R-05 which I use or a Zoom H4n which has the advantage of 4 track recording.
Get a iPhone/pod app clapper or use software like Plural Eyes to sync the audio with the visuals: http://www.singularsoftware.com/pluraleyes.html
Oh - I should add, this question might draw more responses and replies from others far more qualified, posted in the DSLR forum, in fact the moderators may even move it there as the question concerns DSLR video technique that's not specific to any camera model.

If you are going to mike multiple individuals, I would also look at getting a portable mixer. I would also be looking at low impedance balanced lines as they reduce a lot of electrical interference or inductive noise.
