Shooting with Canon GL2, need a third XLR input

      I shoot weddings and frequently find myself with the same problem. I have both groom and minister miked for the ceremony and then a guest has a reading. Even though I have both a handheld mike and a directional mike, I can’t turn off the minister’s or groom’s mike to use them. My only option (I think) is to disengage the MA-300 microphone adapter from the hot shoe on the camera, which automatically turns on the onboard stereo mike.

      Of course, this is not the preferred technique as the disengagement records a loud pop on the audio.

      Can I add some sort of switchable box to let me choose between xlr inputs?

      All ideas are welcome.
