I just learned an interesting thing about recording audio with a wired external mic and a VX2100. I was trying to run a shotgun on a 15 foot extension cable (unbalanced cable). Now I know I shouldn’t do this and if I do I should expect hum, hiss and or buzz – I got the hum. I discovered the hum almost completely went away when I used a battery instead of the power supply to power the camera. I know I’m a simpleton, but that is just amazing to me. So if you ever find yourself in this situation, go with the battery!
