EOS 80D Volume indicator in Canon Camera Connect...



If I watch this video (, it has the volume indicator in camera connect

But mine doesn't have volume indicator. I tried and Both does not give me volume indicator. 

How can I activate it?



Are you talking about the recording levels indicator? Which camera are you using? Are you using an external microphone? What mode are you using?

Hello Stephen, yes I believe it is the recording levels indicator. Please see picture.

I am using 80D and a Hollyland wireless mic (the recording levels show up just fine in the flip out screen but not in Camera Connect App). I am not sure what you mean by "mode"? I was at the video shooting page looking for the recording level indicator and can't find it.

The recording level works just fine on the flip out screen but it simply won't show up in camera connect app. Please help. I am using 80D. Hollyland wireless Microphone.

Hi yulius,

I'm curious if you've done tests with wired mics. A wireless mic that is sending audio to a receiver might not register in the same way.

Thank you for replying Nick. I just tried using a wired mic after your suggestion. Unfortunately, still the same problem. The recording levels indicator shows up in the flipout screen but not in camera connect.

You may also notice that the microphone/Attenuation icon that is supposed to be present at the bottom right, is also not showing.
