Today I will compare the Teradek Bolt 500 to a new wireless system from Hollyland.
I am doing this test because the Hollyland COSMO 400 offers all the pro features and an advertised range of 400 feet (or 122 meters) at a price of $1599 which is significantly lower then the very similar Teradek Bolt 500 which costs $2,290. I figured if I can get the same performance for almost $600 cheaper than it might be worth comparing these two systems.
Here is a video with my tests.
Aside from the performance I actually like some of the features of the COSMO 400 better than the Teradek. Biggest advantage is that the COSMO has built in Sony NPF style battery plates while the Teradek Bolt 500 requires you to power it via a lemo to D-Tap cable and an external battery. On top of that the Teradek doesn’t provide all the necessary cables while the the COSMO has everything you need plus mounting arms and a hard-shell protective case.
