      Hey, I was wondering how you would put a shotgun mic and a lavaliere mic on one camera. I have Canon Vixia HF S10 and plan on using a Audio Technica at897 and I’m not sure about the wireless lav mic yet.

      Help would be appreciated

      Thanks

      three ways… some lav mics have an extra mic jac on thier recievers.

      some mic adaptors (ie beachtek) have multiple mic adaptors…

      you could try headphone splitters, but an external mixing board would give seperate volume controls

      Thanks. So how would I control the volume of both with the extra mic jac on the reciever?

      Here is a moderately priced way:

      I agree with Road Runner. SignVideo makes great mixing units and because your Camcorder

      only has the mini stereo mic input, you would then have the luxury of having XLR mic connections

      and audio level controls. Try a monopod too

      If you don’t want to go with a mixer, I recommend the Canon DM100 microphone. It is made for the Canon hot shoe which powers the mic. It has terrific sound and works fine when there is a 2nd mic plugged into the camera. This clip was recorded with the DM100 from the crappy upper deck seats. I control the record volume manually so there is little distortion.

      More info and reviews here:

      Here’s the model of a cheap mic mixer that I’ve recently purchased for basic audio mixing and level control.Mostly metal construction.Seem to be very rugged and reliable for the value.

      You can use an XLR-BP adapter from Studio 1, which allows you to connect any combination of two microphones (xlr, mini jack, powered or unpowered) to any camcorder with a standard 1/8″ mic input jack http://www.studio1productions.com/xlr-bp.htm

      Alternatively you can use the Azden CAM-3 three mic mixer. They cost about $45 from Amazon
