First of all I know that there are no sensitivity settings on the camera. The only control you would really be able to make is to manually control your audio gain, and that wouldn’t fix the problem. I have a sony V1u with the short shotgun mic on it, which I have sometimes replaced with a higher end shotgun. The problem is with your mic holder, and not the mic itself. In order to fix the problem you need to get an aftermarket mic holder that uses crisscrossing bands for suspending the mic and therefore keeping it from any direct contact with the camera. These can get expensive for a good one, you might be looking at $200 but to get rid of camera noise it’s about the only option aside from getting the mic off the camera completely.
