Canon Vixia HF G50 - Rode Wireless Go

I have a Rode Wireless Go and I've been trying to get it to work with my Vixia HF G50. When I plug it in nothing records. I set the mic power to on in the settings and still nothing. Any advice?

Hi there,

 

I don't know a whole lot about these wireless Rode mics but I do see that they have built-in rechargeable batteries in which case you will want to turn the MIC power off since they do not need to draw phantom power, if I am reading this correctly.

I have the Canon G60 for the past couple years and use the Rode Wireless Go wireless receiver directly connected into the 3.5mm AUX port. Been making YouTube videos using this setup for over a year and works great. So you're definitely doing something wrong.

Can you take a picture of your setup and let me see what I’m doing wrong. Also did you change any settings in the mic section on the camera?
