Hi. Thanks for the reply.


Hi. Thanks for the reply. My headset has two plugs: a red one for the mic, and a green one for the headphones. I am plugging in only the mic.

In the meanwhile I visited a local camera store and asked them about this. They told me that I need to get a mic which has the correct impedance for video work, and that the regular pc mics might not work with the camcorder.I also had a look at the manual; Canon suggests a “condenser microphone with its own power supply”.

Maybe it’s a good idea to start a camcorder mic compatibility thread.
