External Mic not capturing sound. I have a VIXIA HF R400. Any ideas? I've tried multiple mic's.

[ Edited ]

All of the mic's i've tried are 3.5mm jack and something that I could attached to someone for an interview type setting. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Well, let me clarify, they a non-powered mic's. 

 

So they DO actually capture sound, but not unless I adjust the camera setting and I put the mic right up to my mouth to and speak. 

Camera has full battery etc. 

 

Should i just buy a powered mic? Is that the solution?

Yes, you should use a powered mike. The range of a mike without power is extremely limited.
