XLR cables only carry one channel. There is an option in your camera to split into two channels - enable it, or split into two channels in post. To record left and right from the DVX using XLR cables, you'll need one for left, and one for right.

Good luck.

My external mic wont work! Please help.


If the mic is working on other camera's, what about the adaptor ? If there is a possiblity of checking the mic and the adaptor together on other equipment ? Use another mic with the same plug as the camera, ie. PC microphone (you can even test by using an earphone, the earphone can be used as mic) If it works then the XLR mic with adaptor is the problem. If ther other mic (used for testing) also did not work then the microphone jack (socket) in the camera is defective or the gain setting of the camera is set to minimum.

Problem with DV output on ag-dvc30


It is possible that you have a faulty firewire port or cable that is sending electricity through one of the pins that is not designed to handle it. If one of the six pins at one end of a cable is bent, for example, it can electrocute whatever is at the other end.
It's been a while now - did you ever get this problem solved?

Intermittent audio problems from mic jack


This camera has a history of problems with the audio encode/decode process IC which causes loss of audio input and distorted audio processing. Most noticeable is the loss of audio packets in playback of pre-recorded material.
If your problem is in the mic. jack I believe you would be hearing the buzz while monitoring with the headphones. Also, if the camera has been dropped, the audio I/O board connector can break away from the main board causing a bad ground loop or loss of phantom power, this is a common problem.

Hope this helps in some way,

Attaching xlr input


You have to set the audio channels to record in 16 bit audio, and to accept all inputs. If I remember correctly, this should be in the menu under camera setup, or something similar to that.

Need of codes....


Hi I hope this will help http://www.dvcentral.org/tricks.html Tricks 4 XLR ins: Get the Canon MA-300 adapter and get yourself 4 XLR inputs. Perfect for a couple of wireless lavs, a boom, and another mic. Sure, it's less data for the audio channels, but it's plenty for voice recording. Sure, you can't digitize audio 3&4 easily, but it is possible, and it's just so darn useful to have four audio channels in the field. (Also, you can easily mount the wireless lav receivers right on the back of the camera.) Using the Canon on-camera mic via an XLR input: Say you're using a single boom mic, inputting via XLR 1. You've got XLR 2 doing nothing, and the on-camera mic doing nothing. Seems a waste. Well, all you need to do is adapt the on-camera mic to input through XLR 2. A short female-mini-to-male-XLR adapter will do for the audio signal, but the mic needs power. Simple, just get a short micro-mini extender cable, plug one end on to the mic, and the other into where the mic's connector would normally plug, on the camera's handle. Make sure the mic is switched to stereo, and voila, you have a second XLR mic. Monitoring in the field: Though many people told me it couldn't, the XL H1 downconverts to NTSC on the fly during recording, so you can plug a little monitor or deck into the video and audio out jacks and have yourself a video tap. Perfect for the director who wants to see what's going on through the camera. I used a little DV camera, and recorded it all so we could have a playback tape if needed. Very useful. (Note that the output NTSC is anamorphic, stretching the 16:9 image over the whole 4:3 frame. A monitor with a 16:9 switch is useful, or something that automatically adapts, such as what I used, a Sony PD-100 DVCAM camera.) Native slow motion: In a 24F project, shoot 30F and use Cinema Tools to slow down the footage to 24fps for a slight slow motion effect. Use 1/60 shutter speed for a standard look, or 1/30 for a slightly dreamier feel. Good Luck.

External stereo mic into camcorder not recording audio


You cannot simply attach a mike with a 3.5mm jackplug by using an XLR adaptor, the connections are all wrong. The only way to connect an XLR mike to the XM2 is by using an adaptor like the Beachtek XLR adaptor which is a superb bit of kit. I can't be certain of your problem but may I suggest possibilities? I wonder if the adaptor you bought was a stereo adaptor. If it looks like a larger version of the original plug then fine, if it has only the one long metal contact along the pin and then the tip separately, it is a mono adaptor. Using this on a stereo mike would work but it would be combining both channels into one which would degrade the sound and could give rise to your noise issues. If you have got an adaptor that is stereo, is it just the push in type? You can get adaptors that have a threaded barrel to screw the adaptor to the normal plug to lock them together tightly. If it hasn't got that, I would try putting the adaptor on the mike's 3.5mm plug and then taping it together to hold them very tightly together. This will stop minute movements between the two causing buzzing and other noises. I hope you find that of some help, my apologies if not. Rob
