" It also looks like you have an impedance mismatch judging by the specs of your microphone 1000 ohms, and your mixer input at 3,400 ohms. That means the signal will be a not transfer efficiently. " Not true, really. A great many microphones, particularly condenser mics are not meant to be " matched "; they're meant to be " bridged ". As for connecting your mixer to your camera, a simple " pad " ( or attenuator ) can be inserted in the line from your mixer out to your camera IF YOUR CAMERA DOESN'T HAVE A MIC/LINE SWITCH ON THE AUDIO INPUTS. What you have can be made to work without spending a lot of money!
