      – Azden WLX-PRO Camera Mountable VHF Wireless Lavalier System with WR-PRO Receiver and WLT-PRO Body Pack Transmitter/Lavalier Microphone

      – Azden CAM-3 3-Channel Mic Mixer

      According to you guys, I am all set on my audio. Did I get the right entry-level stuff? How will I use the mixer? I want to mic the groom, and havre my zoom mic going as well. Comments please? πŸ˜€

      IMO… I would have went with UHF instead. It’s less prone to outside interference. It kind of comes down to where you live. If you are in the outskirts of town or the country even, you’ll be fine. If you are in the middle of a big city there could be some issues. You’ll just have to make sure you check out your system well in advance to make sure you aren’t picking up something else when shooting an event.

      Hank,

      Wow! May I ask why you had to send the UHF stuff in?

      Thanks guys. I’m in Chicago, and I was following the advice of an equipment thread on this forum.

      Sigh … should I cancel and order the UHF instead? Wht is the price difference? πŸ™

      Wow Hank! That’s the first I have heard of problems like that. I think I’m going to hold off on buying anymore Azden gear until I see if this starts happening to me. πŸ˜•

      ishootparties: The link below will best explain the difference between UHF and VHF. The bottom line is that they both have their good points and bad points. As far as your question goes, I think I’ll leave that up to you. The article associated with this link will help you make your decision.

      Thanks for that article. I’ll stick with the vhf ones I ordered and see what happens. My first wedding video shoot is 7/9/6 …

      P.S. My name is Kimberly πŸ˜‰

      Hi Guys,
      my 7/9/6 shoot fell through. However, I have another scheduled for 7/22 and one on 7/29. Yesterday I shot my first "love story" and it went very well!

      I used the vhf wireless mic, and it worked great! We were in an outside park, then by the lake, then on a rooftop – I mic’d them 1 at a time and the sound was great on both, at all locations.

      Just thought I’d share the experience. πŸ™‚
      I will probably order a second wireless, but how do I connect the two to my camera? Also, how does the camera record sound from 2 mics? 1 zoom, and possible 2 wireless? Help guys …

      Kim,

      I’m not sure what type of camera you have but if you can plug in a stereo mic in and control both channel’s volumes seperatly, you might want to try use a "Y" connector that has two mono female ends to a single stereo end. You would just plug each of your receiver’s outputs into each mono plug on the "Y" connector and then your camera should see two channels representing each wireless mic. Of course a mixer will work too just like "compusolver" said but if you are just using 2 mics and you can control the volume on each channel from within your camera, a "Y" pigtail configured with the right jacks should work too and it’s a lot cheaper.

      Thanks guys! I will try it with the "y" connector. This mixer thing looks intimidating :-//
