      Hi.

      I have been searching some of the more prominent stores for something like this but cannot find it. Basically, my school got a set of wireless mics. Their imput is via 1/8" jack, which is fine for the GL2. But all of the other cameras that I will be using (XL2 and Sony HVR-A1U) only have XLR imputs, which means that I am stuck with one camera when using wireless audio.

      Is there a good converter out there that will let me use a 1/8" wireless with an XLR?

      Thanks

      If you go to B&H video photo site, you can buy a converter between XLR and mini plug (1/8"). Below are two links. I have wireless receivers with mini male plugs which I connect to my XLR inputs to my Beachtech audio mixers attached to my cameras using these types of connectors. Is this what you need? If yes, search B&H further because they have a lot of different grade plugs at different prices.

      On my JVC DV5000U I bolted on a 1/4″ phono/XLR adapter to use some of my favorite old mics. For a 1/8″, get the adapter for 1/8″ to 1/4″ phono.
