I own a Vixia HF G30 and recently purchased a Rode video mic. In settings, I have a couple audio settings, "MIC" and "LINE". None of them record audio from the mic. The mic I bought doesn't require a battery if that makes a difference.
I went to mix the audio setting to try and view the live audio feed but was only receiving a change in levels from the internal mic, nothing from the external.
Please help me out if you know anything about how to fix this. Thanks!
The camera has an external mic jack that you should use. I have a video pro RODE mic as well which does require a 9v battery. I have the G40 which I suppose is similar and in the audio options you have an option to use just the external or to mix the two mics together with %'s either way.
Which RODE mic do you have?
I have an HF G20 and tried a mic that relied on power from the camcorder. Though properly set no audio was recorded. I'm guessing the mic jack is not designed for use with a mic that doesn't have it's own power source. I have used battery powered mics that work fine in the mic jack.
I have the G40 and im guessing that the mic has to power itself in order for it to work. So i have to send my rode mic that doesnt require a battery back because the g40 does not power the mic from the cameras own power.
