Videomaker awards an NAB 2013 Spotlight Award to Canon for the XA25. For the run and gun shooter, Canon created the XA25. Top-notch recording is a staple for Canon's cameras, so the XA25 is no exception and can record AVCHD and MP4 at 28 Mb/s and 35Mb/s respectively.
Hi everyone! I have a question, whenever I plug an xlr mic into my Canon MA-300, which is attached to my Canon GL-2. I get only one channel of audio. The same thing happens when I plug my Zoom H2 (via line out) to my GL-2. Is this the norm or am I doing something wrong. I have scoured the GL-2 Manual and cant seem to get a good answer.
I have been asked (very last minute) to record my works conference. The conference will be for about 150 people and will have a person talking on a stage doing a presentation. They will have a microphone which will broadcast to the room (so everyone can hear). I'm not sure if it will be wireless or not. Will I be able to tap in to this microphones sound so that the video camera can record it clearly? I've been put in the deep end a little bit with this and it's very last minute.
I'd please like to know what is the cheapest camcorder with XLR input(s).
Hello, in the next few weeks I am going to be helping my friends record a ska cover of Roxanne by The Police and later create a music video for it. While doing soundchecks and tests the other night, we ran into a small problem with the microphone; but first let me describe to you our unique way of getting the sound into the computer.
I got a wedding on saturday for a friend, first one i will ever do, and it might become more of a business than a hobby with the word of mouth going around. When i plan on doing interviews, i want the person to be able to talk into my sm58 for clear and crisp audio. My camcorder (Canon hf m30) has a 1/8" mic input. So questions...
If i get a 1/8" M to xlr F cable, does it matter if the 1/8 is in stereo or mono. I've read people complain of hissing and such.
Is there gonna be an impedence mismatch, i realize the mic is Low-z, but can the camera do Hi and Low z?

I'm new to this camera, but I really feel like an idiot asking this question. Everything Panasonic prints says that the XLR inputs are Line/Mic selectable (for 0 db or -50/-60 db). The leftmost audio switches on the side, from what I can tell, simply switch the source of channel 1 and 2, and the right two switches turn on/off +48V phantom power.
Where in the heck do you select Line or Mic level input?
All the manuals imply this is an obvious thing, but I plead total ignorance here.
Can somebody steer me in the right direction?
I was curious if anyone has used the panasonic Ag HMC70U.
Almost everyweek someone onthese forumsasks what camera to buy and I ran across this unit on B&H (link below). It has tapeless workflow, 3CCD, and XLR inputs all for $1695.00which is a lot of what people are looking for so I was curious what people thought about it.
