Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
We hooked up an external mic. Two configurations; XLR to mini-plug directly into the mic input, and a XLR hot-shoe. Both showed good sound levels, but we get no audio when we play back, or when we capture into iMovie.
An instruction manual is available for download at www.canon.com
Your camera, according to the manual, has a single input for microphones, and in the internal menu, AUDIO DUB has to be set to MIC. IN. when using an add-on microphone. An MA-300 hot-shoe microphone accessory can be used, and then the input controls would be on this device, not the camera. Your camera can also record in two different audio qualities: 16-bit two channel or 12-bit four channel. If you are using an accessory you may need to select 12-bit in the internal setup menu in order to have enough channels to add on the additional microphone(s).
Finally, and hopefully not, the camera may have an internal hardware problem, and so would need to be serviced.
