      Heyy

      im shooting a wedding on sunday and i need to route sound from the soundboard (xlr) to my camera (1/8" mini). I have done this before but it has been quite a while so heres the question.

      Do I need a XLR male to 1/8" male or a XLR female to a 1/8" male? Am I taking the correct approach to this?

      Yeah, sounds like you have the right idea. You should be able to hook up via the direct outs or via aux sends. You’ll likely need a male xlr to male 1/8", but if you’re not sure it might not hurt to have both.

      Make sure you have an impedance match – XLR mic output could be mismatched with your camera’s mic input.

      Also, it could hurt the camera to have a line voltage pumped into your mic jack.
