i have here an old microphone Canon MM-200. Can somebody tell me what DC power this microphone needs. I would try to use it on a other camcorder (Panasonic V770) buth it does not work
Is that the correct full model number for the microphone? if so, then that microphone is too old for the internet. Panasonic makes a few V770 microphone models, with different letters on the end..
I got the mic from a friend. He got it from his father.
It's really a mic from Canon. The name Canon is on the mic and on the box.
It's a stereo mic and it has an audio input connector.
So when you are filming, you can mix an external audio signaal with the sound that the stereo mic is captering.
I'm from Belgium (Europe). Maybe it's a model that has only been sold in Europe? But it is a mic from Canon (made in Japan)
What wadizzle means is that his Google-Foo failed.
Your best bet might be to see if what documentation you have and see if it lists any compatible cameras and look for the manual for *those*, the specs might list any phantom power capabilities.
Remember, Canon makes consomer to pro to very pro video equipment.
