Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG155 Camcorder

1 Answer

Independent audio input device

I have connected a helmet camera to the camcorder using the patch cord they supplied, for use on a motorcycle. The helmet camera doesn't have a microphone, (there would be too much wind noise anyway) and I need a separate audio device to plug into the patch cord.
The audio input specs are 300mV rms, 50k ohms. Any ideas?
Cheers

    cheers for that. The specs I quoted are for the AV audio input on the camcorder. I need something compatible to plug into it. Somebody suggested a preamp, but nothing seems available and I don't know anything about them.

    The bike's a Suzuki DL1000 - I'm the old bit.

    cheers

Hey old byke. The microphone that you supplied the spec for is a condenser mic. By using a dynamic mic(often 600 ohms) will help with wind noise and give you better results. I would tuck it up away anywhere that there is some shielding from the wind. A foam wind filter over it would help also.

What you ride mate... in the middle of a rebuild on my XS650 at the moment.gotta love the old bikes.

    you wont need a preamp, just plug it in and go for it. I DO understand what the specs are, a dynamic mic 600 ohms will STILL DO THE JOB. A 5k impedance mic plugged into a 600 ohm input impedance wont however. I am an electronics and sound engineer, my avatar is a picture of my studio control room. I suggested a dynamic mic as under the circumstances you are attempting to record in, and a condensor will pick up far too much noise. A dynamic has much different characteristics and will do the job much better.

    I didnt reply to your question only because I am into bikes, I DO know what I am talking about. But me thinks your "thanks for trying" rating means that you do not take my advice seriously. Oh well. I tried.

I am trying to playback videos on my JVC Everio Camcorder using the colored AV cords. I hear the audio coming through my TV but there is no video/picture. I have tried adjusting the settings and tried...


First, set [SWITCH TO ANALOG I/O] to [OUTPUT]
then turn off the (camcorder) unit.

After you connect the cable (from AV connector to the TV's AV Input Connector (accepting the 3 color cables), set the TV to VIDEO mode, selecting the AV input (from your Camcorder).
Then start your playback on the camcorder ...
slide the mode switch to select the (video) mode (instead of the picture/photo mode)... press the PLAY/REC to select the playback mode, and select the desired files/frames to play.

Hope this works for you. Have you tried using the HDMI mini connector instead ? (same process, just set your TV to accept input from the HDMI input)

    You can transfer video from the camera to your pc by using an i.Link connection if your camera has it or you can use the supplied usb wire to connect it to your pc and transfer the video that way. If you do not have the cord it is easily obtainable at any camera repair or sales store.

    Connecting analong camcorder to computer


    The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.

    Watching tapes on TV


    To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR). Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios: When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control. # When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode. # Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR. Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.
