Question about Canon Optura 500 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
How do you use an external microphone? I have a couple I've tried plugging into the microphone jack, but I get nothing and while it's plugged in the internal mic wont work either. In the display, it doesn't matter if mic attenuation is on or off. Is there a specific kind of microphone you have to use?
I believe you need a stereo mic. This will have two black rings around the male input. When you plug it into the camera, it will "disable" the built-in mic. I don't believe it will matter if the attenuation is on or off.
