Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
While using an external microphone (mini-jack attachment) i burned out the main-board so now i have absolutely no sound from any external mics usin the mini-jack. The on-board mic works just fine. In order to repalce that I've been asked for $800 which I cannot afford at this time. My question is, if i buy the MA-300 xlr adaptor which fits in the hot-shoe...wil i have external sound? Is the sound input via the mini-jack parts or via the on-board microphone? I would greatly appreciate any help because right now i am in the middle of shooting a documentary and sound is very important to me..
Im wondering why it cant be repaired down to componet level as if the servicer has a schematic its probaly not more then a cap a diode or both snf msybr sa resistor as they do have a protection curcuit on thes camcorders that wount let it distroy the Board Maybe you need another servicer??? Im not sure of your queistion on the adaptor But im sure that if you look in your owners manual it will assist you in where to call to get or buy accessorys. Good luck
