zoom h4 with lavalier mic for wedding production...

hi guys, I'm shooting another wedding this weekend and looking to upgrade my audio capturing. Currently we do a 2 camera shoot just using onboard mics from cams (I know, not exactly the best way but results have been fine). I want to get the zoom h4 and a nice lavalier mic to stick in the grooms pocket and fasten the mic to his lapel. Is anyone using this product for this and can someone recommend a good lavalier mic that would work with the h4. thanks,


Mark

I can't recommend a mic for the H4 but are you really going to put that monster in a groom's pocket? I'd be curious to hear if anyone has even tried this before.

But if that's all you have I suppose it'll have to do.

well it doesnt look that big but from doing a little research I dont think I can even connect a lavalier mic to it. so how bout the Edirol R09? it looks a little smaller and I'm guessing someone can recommend a good lavalier mic for it for attachment to a groom's lapel.

Have you given any thoughts to using a wireless mic, sent to one of the cameras? Might be a lot easier to handle in post. The H2, H4, Edirol, iRiver, whatever can then be used as a backup system, or at the podium for soloists or readers.

Just my 2 cents!

Good luck!

He's looking for something this weekend. The H2 isn't even availble yet.

If he'd have given more notice I'd have recommended trying to get an iRiver off ebay for $30-$40 and save the bulk of his cash for the H2 when it comes out.
