Canon 80D clicking sound on video recording

Hello, when using an external mic (have tried two Rode mics) the video recording has an audible, cyclic clicking sound... akin to the baseball card in your bicycle tire held w a clothespin.

Hoping someone can help. Clicking sound doesn’t happen when using built in mic.

What lens?

Did you try turning off autofocus and IS?

I’ll try that but I use the AF while shooting video.

Which model of microphone?  Does it require power?  

 

How are you connecting both microphones to the camera at the same time?

Hello,

 

I am replying to this because this thread has established seo on google and comes up when you search for this problem. This problem happens when you have wifi on, and especially when the phone is close to the camera. I would also assume the rode mic cable picks up all kinds of electrical noise due to its spiral shape and not being shielded. I was able to fix the problem using aluminum foil as shielding. I am also working on making my own cable out of shielded twisted pair wire, but for now the foil helps. That or don’t use wifi or use the internal mic if you really need to capture the audio well.
