Rode Mic Question

I have a newbie question here. I film the sermons at our church on Sundays and I am using a canon GL2. I also use the Senn ew110 wireless mic for the sermon itself. I have a Rode NTG2 mic installed in the cam shoe, but when I plug it into the cam mic jack I only get mono and not stereo. How can I get stereo out of this mic? or is it only a mono mic?

It is only a mono mike.

Depending on which audio software you have, you can always dupicate one channel and paste it back as a copy into the other channel.

I haven't got a copy of Vegas, but I don't see why not, it is a standard action that most editing software should support. If you alter the levels of one track then you can simulate the voice coming from off centre.

You can do pretty much anything with the audio in Vegas. You can duplicate a track but why would you need too? You can render the audio as a stereo mix in the final output.

I'm curious though, the sermon is recorded where? Do you record it seperately and mix it with the cam audio?

Have fun.

You would duplicate the track if you wanted to have a stereo effect off centre or apply any other effect.
