I want to put a mic on my T1i and have a couple of questions. Here is what's going on...
I'm a drummer and used to use a set of mics for my acoustic set. Since, I've moved to an electronic set and now I have a bunch of mics. Two of them being mini condensers (used on my cymbals) and the others being dynamics (used on my toms).
I want to attach a mini condenser to my camera but I'm not sure if I can do it considering the connections from mic to camera....
As you probably know, the T1i has a 2.5mm female jack (1/16th inch). First of all, can the T1i even use an external audio source due to the 2.5mm input?)
The condenser mic has XLR (3-pin) male output. How do I get from that to the 2.5mm input on the T1i?
Help is much appreciated.
1.) Condenser mic to be put on T1i.
2.) How does one connect XLR male output to 2.5mm female input?
