I purchased a Canon XA11 and I purchased a Saramonic VMic Mini hooked it all up for church service today and did my recording and there was no sound. I went into the menu to adjust the mic, but something is not working I am using the XLR connections. Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong. I have tried everything. Thank you
I think this post is relevant for you. Basically you need a power mic or a mic that can accept phantom power. The VMic Mini is a passive mic and won't work as you expect on the XA11.
Via 1/8" mic port: needs to be powered mic, i.e. Rode VideoMic NTG (battery powered)
VIA XLR, either powered or be able to accept phantom power, i.e. RODE NTG1 shotgun mic
