I have used that exact combination…Canon G30 and Rode Videomic Pro. I get excellent audio with that setup…no hiss at all. Are you using automatic audio level controls? I always use ‘manual’ audio level controls for optimum quality. Also check the settings on the Videomic itself. There is a level sensitivity switch on the back of the mic. I think it toggles through -10db, 0db, and +20db. Make sure you are not on the +20db setting. A low battery may also introduce some noise or hiss., and finally, always use headphones when rolling so you can monitor what you are recording in the field, that way you won’t get any surprises back in the editing suite.
