Purchase a few Rode Smart Lav's. You can plug them into any recording device for broadcast quality audio - iPhone, iPad, Samsung, etc.

Thanks for the reply, I'm looking for something that a 6th grader can grab on the spur of the moment and setup for a quick interview.  Using soundboards and multiple devices that then have to be mixed together again in post is not really a possibility. 

This is the closest thing that I have found, but it has only one audio input

Why not run the audio and video separately, through a mixer (or Zoom h4n if you want a portable option).     Run separately then merge it in post.     If you do do that then you will need to change the bit-rate of the audio recording to match the video, as they run at different rates.    If you don't then the audio will gradually go out of sync.  

I know mostly audio, but you could reach out to Daniel from http://theaudacitytopodcast.com/.   He does a lot with quality digital SLR video recording with high-end audio.   Most of what I know came from listening to him.

Hello List,

I have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with.  

I run a school news program with one of my classroom teachers and we have previously used a high end video camera from our local public access station.  

I'm now in the process of finding a video camera for our school to purchase.  I have been looking at various options on Amazon and there are many cameras in the $1500 range but they all lack multiple audio inputs.  I'm on the search for the most reasonably priced camera that will allow a boom mic and a handheld at the same time.

Can anyone recommend a camera that they have experience with?  Or if there is someone at your school who would know the answer to these questions can you contact me off list with their details.

Rusti
