Wireless Mic Systems

I would like to be able to record audio to my camcorder (a GL-2) from two different sources (two people each carrying a wireless mic bodypack). Is this difficult to do? I've looked at Audio-Technica's site at camera-mounted receivers and none seem to be able to simultaneously receive two channels of audio.

Appreciate whatever guidance you guys could give me.

Dear Bob,

This usually requires two wireless receivers, one for each of the wireless transmitters, each on a separate channel.

Since I am not an expert on the GL2, I recommend that you contact one, or call Canon to see if you can record two separate mono signals without purchasing the Canon adapter.

I just read the GL2 manual and could not determine if this can be easily performed. This is easy on the XL1s, but I do not know how to do this on the GL2.

As Dan intimated, you'll need two separate receivers for two mics.
To input two mono signals to the GL, you just need a stereo to mono splitter, available at any Radio Shack or other electronics store that carries standard adaptors. About 5.00 in most places. Be sure to have some sort of strain relief so you don't have a cable mess hanging on the side of the camera.
