RS

FINALLY I got my Lavs to work. But heres what happened. I put my car on auto pilot and it took me to Radio Shack. I tried a different location this time (I dont think I could stand to see the same guy 3 days in a row.)

I questioned the RS guy about why my setup wasnt working. He flat out told me that It will not work because the mic is not "Line level" or something like that. My response "You dont know what type of camera I have, THIS CAMERA CAN DO ANYTHING. He went through all of the reasons why It wouldn't work, I blew it all off and . I brought up the stereo to mono question with the adapter and his response "hmmmmmmmmmmm"

I came home with a mono-mono 1/8 to phone adapter. Plugged the mic into the adapter, plugged in the mic and turned the audio monitor to 2, and wouldnt you know it. IT WORKED!!!!

For the headaches I went through I hope the quality doesnt stink. If it is ok, I have found an economical way to add lavs to my XL1s!

Thanks again for all of your help and suggestions.

Maybe Bill was right about the shoe thing.

I will post the setup for any interested as soon as I get done doing my victory dance!
Thanks again,
Jeff
