I have 2 Sony FX7 cameras and I try to use external microphones for better sound. I use 2 Azden smx-10 and one Panasonic. All of them on high volume they give me breaks into the sound (missing 1-3 seconds of audio). Like an internal protection is going on.
Any ideas what is going on? Any settings on the camcorders? Both os them have the same problem.
All I can say is check the mic settings and connectivity. Did you try another microphone to see if the same thing happens?
I try all the settings also the connectivity. I tried 3 microphones (2 Azden and one Panasonic). All the same problem…for Panasonic less issues than Azden. I read so many forums about it, also on B&H they recommend this mic with FX7. Even I scream into the external mic the camera is cutting the sound for couple of seconds.
