Using headphones with the VIXIA HF20 series camcorder


Using Headphones

Use headphones for playback or to check the audio level while recording. The headphones are connected to the [AV OUT/] terminal, which is used for the headphones and the audio/video output. Before connecting the headphones, follow the procedure below to change the function of the terminal from AV output to headphones output.

The icon will appear on the screen.


  • When using headphones, make sure to lower the volume to an appropriate level.
  • Do not connect the headphones to the [AV OUT/] terminal if the headphone icon does not appear on the screen. The noise output in such case may be harmful to your hearing.
  • Use commercially available headphones with a Ø 3.5mm minijack.
