<span>Hi Guys.</span>
<span>I want to know if someone can help me. I recently bought a Panasonic AG AC160 video camera. also I bought an external microphone a Panasonic AG-MC200G. What I want is to shut down the built in microphone in order to use only the external microphone in a boom pole. I have read the manual several times but I cant understand how to do it or maybe theres lack of information about how to shut down the built in mic. I someone knows how to do it.please send me how to do it step by step. You can answer me here in the forum or to my email;</span>rowinfre@gmail.com<span>. Thanks a lot. Happy filming!!</span>

I'm not familier with this camera, but have you checked to see if the camera records each input to a different channel? For example:

CH1 & CH2: the built-in mic

CH3 an XLR connection

CH4: the remaining XLR connection

If that's the case, you'd either completely lower the audio levels for CH1 and CH2 or just delete them when you lay your footage onto a timeline when you're editing.

Page 41 of your manual implies you should switch to input from internal - are you saying that doesn't work?

Check out volume 2 of the manual, like Bruce suggests.

In this case, however, the documentation for the camera indicates that the on-camera mic can be disabled.
