I am getting starting with video and I have a question about audio. I am going to be doing my first event (wedding) where audio is going to be critical. I have done other shoots, where the audio was not as important.
I have a Zoom H1 Recorder. There is going to be someone at the event taking care of sound, mics, etc.
Should I see if the sound guy will give me a 3.5mm output? I could then use that as an input to the Zoom H1 and record based on that.
- Disadvantage: If one of the mics is off/disconnected, I wouldn't get any audio?
Should I place the Zoom H1 in the room somewhere or attach it to the camera?
- Disadvantage: Not as good audio quality as what you could get from the mics?
What is the best way to get good quality, reliable audio?
