It’s possible that the batteries in one or both microphones are old. The shotgun mic either runs on phantom power, or it is powered by one or more batteries. The lav mic might have an odd impedance or wirelessfrequency that does not match the camcorder’s inputs(though I doubt that’s it). Also, the camcorder’s battery could be low and not give enough phantom power.

Just wondering, does the buzz from both mic systems sound the same, or is the output different for each microphone?
