Canon HF G40 - Low Cut Filter Specs?

Qoncussion

I've been trying to find any literature that specifies at what frequency the low cut filter rolls off on the Canon Vixia HF G40 camcorder...

I have several mics with a built in roll off (low cut) switch. Some roll off at 80dB, and some at 200dB.

Does anyone know at what dB the G40 rolls off?

Though an older thread I will give an answer. Cannot find any specfic figures, but the bass roll-off is probably between 80 to 200htz. Frequency measurement is expressed in Hertz not Db. You should have no problem using any of your mics that have built in bass roll-off. Best defence against wind is to use a dead-cat on the mic.

My bad... I meant hertz (Hz) not dB. I figured the roll-off to be between 80-200Hz, but am guessing that this is not spec'd out anywhere. Oh well...
