I have a Canon 70D. I'm using it with an Audio Technica AT897 mic (with an XLR adapter). For some reason, when I play back recorded footage on the camera, there is no sound except for some very light static. However, when I put the footage on my computer and play it back there, the sound is perfectly fine.
I tried unplugging the mic and recording video with the built in microphone on the camera, and it played back fine. While this isn't a massive issue, it still would be nice to know if there is a fix. That way I will know if and when my external mic needs a replacement battery.
I know it isn't because my volume is turned down...
Has anyone else run into these sort of issues?
Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd try reviving this one as it seems to be the same problem.
I am brand new to this and also have a EOS 70D.
recorded without mic - playback fine
plugged in my external lavalier mic - playback no sound
No settings changed inbetween recordings.
The mic is: Premium 196" Dual-head Lavalier Microphone, Professional Lapel Clip-on Omnidirectional Condenser Mic [link disabled due to forum guidelines]
The reason may be due to the mode you are in. If you're not in a Program much such as P, Av, Tv or M then you will not see the comprehensive displayed only in those modes. The automatic or Basic zone modes do not have the same set of options.
