Audio is the most challeng


Audio is the most challenging part of any production. I use the Azden 500UDR wireless system on a JVC-5000U and find it to be very good. I have several types of mics that are XLR and the plug in transmitter really allows a lot of flexibility. My thought on the wedding audio… as many mics as you can afford and still manage during the shoot. How about a wireless shotgun along the side and aimed between the first row and the Bride and Groom? This would be a secondary “catch all” track. Many years ago, I suspended a “wired” mic from a ceiling beam- it worked surprizingly well.
