I reacently purchased the canon hg10

i am VERY happy with it.

But i came acrost a problem when tring to plug a cheap mic into the mic terminal.

i tried it again with anothor cheap mic and it was the same.

All it made when i played it back was a loud BUZZZZZ

i have a new shotgun mic coming in the mail and hope that will make a difference

if anyone with any experience with canon cameras has any idea on what i could try, that will be greatly appreciated

thank you

I haven't done this yet, but I know there is a setting that you have to change so that the camera knows you've plugged in an external microphone. Also, check out this tutorial from Berkley University.

I think i just figured out, for some reason the 2 mics i just tested didnt work with my camera. It works now
