Cheapo film transfer with audio
on Aug 13, 2010 at 2:51:45 pm

I recently acquired some old 16mm films that are in reasonably good shape. I want to do an "el cheapo productions" transfer to HD Video. I have the video end covered but I'm not sure how I can get good audio. The dull roar of the projector rules out miking the projector speaker. Can I feed out of the 8 ohm speaker jack using some sort of pad or box, then route to a line input on my camera? What do you audio pros suggest?

I tried running it through a bridging amp then into my camera. That will pass the not too stringent requirements for el cheapo productions.

Thanks James,

The guitar does most of it. I'm just hanging on for the ride.
