[QUOTE=Don't even think about trying to mic a bride.[/QUOTE]

Agreed! It would be a brave man who would try and put a mic on a bride! Usually the lav mic is enough to pick up the vows. I also use the on cam mic as a back up

Agreed again! It has always puzzled me why people think the bride needs to be mic'd. She is standing right there with the groom, right?

Re: groom pockect audio recorder?

The groom's mic can sure pick up the bride's voice and in most cases, very useable but there will always be a difference in audio quality.

I guess it really comes down to how picky one is when it comes to quality and how comfortable your bride is with you to let you mic her.

I know folks in the industry who mic their brides and never had any problem doing it. I personally think my brides won't have any problem with me micing them either because I generally have a great relationship with my clients and they always see me as a very close friend by the time I cover their wedding so micing my brides shouldn't be a big deal. I just need to find a quick and easy setup.

Re: groom pockect audio recorder?

I have 2 zooms and they are great little recorders but - in the grooms pocket?? really? you guys must have big pockets over there.

I use olympus recorders and never had a problem - half the thickness of a zoom and 2/3 of the height, nice and slim.

Re: groom pockect audio recorder?

Hello guys, before i take the plunge investing in two Zoom H1's i was wondering if there were any better/cheaper recommendations out there? They will be used in conjunction with mics mostly for wedding/corporate work. While we're at it, what mics would you recommend? Cheers.

Re: groom pockect audio recorder?

The Yamaha C-24 is half the size of the Zoom H1 & far more pocket-friendly particularly in those rented dress suits which only have rudimentary pockets that are just about enough big enough to hold a comb. It has a handy detachable clip too which is good for fixing it to a lectern or table decoration when it's not in a pocket. The audio quality is as good as Zoom. It powers on very quickly & has 2GB internal memory which is quite sufficient for recording all day if you record to MP3. The battery lasts all day too. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Yamaha-Pocketrak-C24-Pocket-Recorder/dp/B00361MZF8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354035590&sr=8-1

Fantastic thanks guys, looks like a better alternative to the zoom, little more pricey but within my price range. Is there a 'lock' button to prevent it from being stopped in the pocket?

Yes. The on/off button can be switched to "hold".
