      Hi guys,

      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.

      Thanks,

      Mircea

      All I can say is check the mic settings and connectivity. Did you try another microphone to see if the same thing happens?

      Hi XTR-91,

      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.

      Thanks,
