Using Phantom Power with the XH series camcorders


Phantom Power is a method of providing DC power from the camcorder to professional style external microphones which require +48 volt external power supplied via the XLR jacks.

  • To supply a microphone with phantom power, set the corresponding +48V switch to ON.
  • Make sure to connect the microphone first, before turning on the phantom power. Keep the microphone connected when turning off the phantom power.
  • Use commercially available microphones with a cable no longer than 3m.
