External mic for Panasonic DVC80p

Hi! I was hoping you could help me with a problem I'm having. I want to use an external mic (for interviews) with my panasonic DVC80p. How do I turn off the onboard mic so all that is working is the external mic? Also, is this possible?

Thanks,
Cindy :)

On page 49 of your owner's manual, the operation of the mic input switches is described.

Panasonic dvx1000a has no audio input, for xlr connector, the switch line mic is in mic pos. and the external mic not work in that camera.


You have to switch the CH1 and CH2 switches inside the lcd display to input 1 or input 2 to control the xlr inputs. If these switches are in int (L) and int(R) position, then you are adjusting the audio on the CH1 ad CH2 dials below the lcd viewer on the outside of the lcd for the on camera mic. Only use line setting on the front of the camera when you are receiving an audio feed at line level from an audio board. If you set the camera to mic setting, and you are receiving a line level audio signal, you will blow out the audio 0 way too loud, if you are receiving a mic signal and your switch is set to line, you will not be able to hear the mic with the audio Ch1 and ch2 all the way up.

I own a Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder, I am a Private Investigator and while recording the sound needs to be muted, how can I accomplish this?


Hi There, There is no external mic input on that model camera. The only way to do it is you will have to take the front panel off the unit and disconnect the flat mic/audio cable from the front panel. If you do this, tape up the connector so it won't short out the unit. If you had external mic in, you could put a dummy plug in and that would cut the sound from the internal microphone.
Thanks, me cicmo

I dont understand how to use an external mic. Use of external mic.


Your external mic needs to have a 1/8" plug. You will need to find the "Mic" input, this is generally found behind a removable or hinged plastic or rubber panel, and usually near the A/V plug connectors. When you plug in an external mic, the camera switches over to use it rather than the built-in mic. On this camcorder, you cannot set the recording level of the external mic. The camera sets the level automatically. So it is simply a plug-and-play, or plug-and-record solution.

Using an external mic allows you to reduce self-noise and handling noise. It is generally recommended for better videos. Different microphones are likely to interact in different ways with your camera and its automatic level-setting, so you should try out different microphones if you have more than one available to you.

Regarding the canon hv20 camcorder. When using an external canon MIC a) How do you know the mic is working and you are not picking up sound on the internal MIC b)On connecting the external MIC an icon...


If you put the camcorder in manual mode, there is a microphone sensor that will move when sound is picked up by the external microphone. In manual you can keep everything else automatic. The off for the mic means that the built in mic is turned off when an external mic is attached.
