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?

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
