I'm about to start my first film and I need a line on some good mics. I plan on using a boom mic at least. Should I get wireless mics as well? Can I plug the above directly into my GL2 MiniDV camera?

any suggestions would help.

I believe that camera does not have any XLR mic inputs. you should invest in a beachteck audio adapter with two input channels and 48volt power. then the world of mics will open up for you. a good shotgun mic is really what youwhould start with, higher the price the better the sould. senn 416 or better. that mic will still be sounding good long after that camera is donated to goodwill. try different angles with any mic you get, and be aware of what is in the line of sight directly behind the subject. good luck
