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?
Look in the front of the camera, near the hood. There are two switches, one for each input.
The HMC70 chassis should be very similar, having the mic/line/48+ switches located just slightly to the right and over the XLR inputs.
