Hi, I’m very new to video and need some advice. I just purchased the Panasonic AG-DVC60 Mini DV cam. The video looks great and the built in mic sounds great when shooting very close. My problem is, It has 2 XLR inputs on the back of the camera, I used an old sure mic into channel one but when I reviewed the shot, it had tons of noise, was in mono and sounded horrible. I know the mic sounds good, I’ve used it through a tascam porta studio and edited in adobe audition.
This cam has, 2 XLR’s Chan 1 and Chan 2,
1, 1/8 jack, S-vidio and also stereo in/out jacks. The white and red ones… like on a DVD player.
What should I Use? I currently have a Beringer 2 condenser mic but it needs phantom power. Would this mic work for a boom?
Please, any advice would greatly be appreciated.
Also, the footage I’m shooting is for local commercials.. so it’s important the sound is clean.
