Not aware of any portable receivers (Camera mountable) that can handle two transmitters at once. You'll probably have to get two sets of rcv/xmtr and plug one into each channel. What are you shooting that needs two wireless's? Sometimes, a single mic placed properly can pick up a pretty wide range.

Well, you're probably going to have to rent something with this little notice.

A lot of people THINK they need to mic each person they want to record, but usually a good omni will get a "bubble" of sound about 10' in diameter... 6 really good feet. A tram with a Lectro would be a good call if you want to mic the groom or the minister and get everybody's words.

If that's not the case and you really do need two sets then have at it... you should expect to be doing a fair bit of audio editing with the final project though... manually selecting the voice of whoever is actually mic-ed and turning off the other channel... in your edit timeline... otherwise the delayed sound of the mic-ed person reaching the OTHER wireless will combine into a "hall" effect of a diminished echo due to the distance and both sets picking up everything they can hear... get my drift?

It would be far easier to just mic the ceremony with one really good mic and wireless set and then just normalize the audio in post so that volume is adjusted as needed to compensate for the varying distances of the speakers from the mic.

Just a couple thoughts for you.

Something else you may not have considered is using a minidisc recorder and doing an analog transfer to your edit timeline... just sync up the voices in post... Creative has a digital recorder that's a possibility also... good luck.

Ronald,

A good wireless with an omni mic placed on either the groom or the bride should pick up the whole thing just fine. May need to boost the bride a bit in post but not so that you would notice.

Thanks Rob - I plan to spend several hours this weekend just testing and experimenting with the sound set ups.

If you do not want much trouble try getting a pair of Sennheiser EW112P (omni UHF wireless). Its a heck of a system and is available through DVinfo sponsors. Typical price is around $450 each.

Jarek, your dv500 I expect is similar to a dvx. With the dvx you can choose the on cam mic, or even just half of it... there are two inputs on the side of the dvx... then on the other side there is a switch to choose between one or both inputs which shuts off one or both halves of the on cam mic.

If most cams (mid-range) don't do this they should... I would expect your's will... the other cool thing about that is you can choose the appropriate "half" of the on cam mic according to whichever side is most likely to get the best audio... i.e. reflections, others talking, etc.

If you can't buy something last minute you can rent a Lectro for around $50 with a great mic.
