The MX393 requires phantom power. Unfortunately, camcorders do not have phantom power. Thus, you'll need an adapter box to go in between. Beachtek makes some nice interfaces. Make certain the Beachtek interface has phantom power.

You need to connect your mic to an amplifier first and then to camera. Orherwise mic has not enouth power output. Zoom h4n might work but its expansive. Or u can buy wm-v1, wireless mic, it'll work just fine. Or buy mic with power already built in, like Rode VideoMic.

I have a TRV98 Hi8. Trying to convert Video 8 tapes to digital. Sound comes from the camcorder, but no sound coming through the converter to the computer. Using the s-video cord?

An S-VHS cable only carries video signals. You must connect a separate audio cable from the camera to the sound input on your computer. On a Windows computer this would be the Mic input, usually marked in pink. You may also have to make sure that the computer has the mic input turned on, which in Windows would involve the sound Mixer. The standard Windows mixer is accessed by double-clicking the little speaker symbol in the "tray" at the bottom right, but many sound cards have their own mixer utilities.

Where do i plug in a cable to connect the cam to a tv or computer? i only see an ear socket and an ext mic socket on the cam.

On my Panasonic camcorder, the RCA plug-ins are in a separate compartment covered with liftable flap. Try searching for this flap. My flap is next to the battery compartment.

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.

Input audio to PV-GS250 from an external mixer

Problem check list:

- Try another cable in the connection to rule out the cable
- Make sure the 1/8 plug goes in all the way
- Make sure you have it connected to proper outputs on the mixer (and that it's not a powered mixer!)
- Make sure you don't have the output volume up too loud on the mixer
