Better Audio for your Digital SLR DSLR Video Camera

Having trouble getting good audio with your DSLR Camera? It’s not uncommon.

I had 2 Lavalier (lapel) microphones laying around that were for my iPhone or Android style smartphone. They both have pretty good sound when connected to my smartphone.

I wondered if I could connect them to my Canon 60D DSLR Camera. The problem was that the two Lav Mics that I had have a TRRS Connector that plugs into a smartphone. My DSLR has a TRS connector for the microphone input jack.

So, I found an adapter and an extension cable and gave it a try.

I think you might find my results interesting.

Two Lavalier microphones used were:

-Shure MVL Lavalier Mic

-Gora Lav Mic

Also used:

-Radio Shack 1/8 inch (3.5mm) TRRS Female to Double 1/8 inch (3.5mm) TRS Male Adapter cable
-TRS FemaleExtension cable
