Audio recording in weddings

Hi, we make short wedding movies, in which there are small interviews of the bride groom or their parents or friends.

Right now, I use this,

Amazon.com: Audio-Technica ATR-3350 Lavalier Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone: Musical Instruments

I put this on their shirt and put the other end directly into 5D Mark3 audio jack.

It does pretty good job, but still I feel the noise.


Do, I need to use a dedicated recorder like Zoom H1N and put the mic cord into it and connect the H1n to Mark 3 ?

Does that improve anything ?

Re: Audio recording in weddings

The Mic is only one part of the chain, the pre-amp in what ever you are using to record things makes a huge difference to noise and hiss. What are you currently using? Direct in to the mk3?

Re: Audio recording in weddings

I simply put the cord of the mic into the audio jack of the 5Dmk3 and it does the job!

So, what do you suggest ?
What should I get ?

Re: Audio recording in weddings

Something like a sound devices mm-1 or mixpre preamps would do the job.

Re: Audio recording in weddings

Hi Soumendra, I also have an ATR 3050, better than the camera mic but otherwise pretty bottom end. I wonder if some of the hiss is due to the unshielded 20ft cable. I think you would be better off in the first instance if you upgraded to (say) an AT899.

Re: Audio recording in weddings

If we use the AT889, do we not need any more external audio recorder ?

Re: Audio recording in weddings

Maybe try the AT into an external recorder?

I use the 3350 w/ a Tascam DR05 and it works great.

Re: Audio recording in weddings

Amazon.com: TASCAM DR-05 Portable Digital Recorder: Musical Instruments
Okay 79$ is good enough.

So how is the workflow ?

You connect the mic to recorder and it records the audio separately ?

And video is done separately on the 5D.

So, video and audio has to be synced in the post production then.

Correct ?


And how do we remove the hissing and wind sound ? Does the recorder does the job of clearing ?

Re: Audio recording in weddings

I've not noticed any hiss on setup with that mic.

Now, if you're shooting outdoors and getting wind noise that's a different animal.
I'm not sure of any budget mics that are going to deal well with that. Usually I think you need non condenser type mics or really good windscreens which I don't think exist for lav mics.

In terms of post you are correct. Your camera audio provides a scratch track to sync to.

I bought my dr05 from B and H and it came with plural eyes 3 at the time.

The new premiere CC syncs too I believe but I've never used it.
