Question about Rode (VIDEOMIC) Professional Microphone

Open Question

Sound pans back and forth, overall quality not great

Hi
I bought a Rode video shotgun mic for my canon 5d mark ii and to be honest it hasnt really ever been used as its just sat around for about 8 months. Recently I tried to use it and decided to do some test shots but noticed regardless of which option it is on, the audio jumps from left to right and has trouble coming out of both speakers...
Is this something I am doing wrong? or is it possibly just damaged as it just sat around not in the best care?
Thanks so much for any advice!

My 5d mark 11 camera screen appears error20 and it wont remove


Hi

Error code 20 on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II indicates there is a hardware problem with either the mirror or the shutter. The only solution is to have it repaired - or if the camera is reasonably new take it back to your supplier and get your money back.

Hope this helps
