VideoKing You stated the you used a low audio setting from the mixer and it worked. I'm a little confused by your question. I have an FX7 also.

There are lots of ways to get good audio but they vary based on what you are trying to record. For a wedding you may need more than one source of audio. Such as having a wireless mic on the groom and a second recording on an external recorder that you would mix in post.

Doing sit on the couch interviews I have used Shotgun mics on an overhead stand wired directly into the camera and no mixer with good success.

Tell us a little more about what you have used and what you are trying to do.
