D5100 multiple mics connected?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My friends and i are going to be making some videos with his D5100 in the near future.

We will be in doors in front of a green screen.

In the near future we will be getting a Rhodes shotgun mic (i think is what were doing).

until that time we have some corded/lapel mics. Can we use a splitter and connect 2-3 mics at a time to the camera, or will this over power the camera causing damage to it?

Also, do you think 1 shotgun mic will work well for 3 people in front of a green screen?

My guess is that the better option would be to use wireless lapel mics, although I'm not terribly familiar with DSLR audio input.

You have to use a microphone mixer to get audio properly mixed in. I'm a fan of double system sound. So I would go that route including the shotgun mic

Depending on what you may be doing a boom mic could be better.

you really are going to want a sound mixer like aksthem said.

doing what you said will not damage the camera to the best of my knowledge. i am no audio expert or video one either. but if you want good sound its better to be able to control it of possible through a mixer or one of those DSLR preamp boxes that you can attach to the bottom of your dslr like a juicedlink
