I am still new in this industry. I bought myself a Canon XH G1 with a Sennheiser shotgun mic, consisting of two units - the ME 66 and K6.
Now the question is regarding the K6 Powering module. I got my training from a well known cinematographer in Cape Town who knows what he's doing for over 20 years. (He owns the same mic as me) As I've been told by him that you should never use a non-phantom powering mic on a video camera with phantom power switched on. (49V) - He said you will blow the phantom power sircuit on the camera.Now I've asked him if I can use the mic that I have, and switch on the phantom power. He said no! Now I'm going through the K6 power modulemanual and it states the following:
K6 powering module for battery or phantom
K6 P power module for phantom powering only
I own this K6. Can I use it for phantom powering?
