    When you are using a microphone connected to the MIC terminal, including the WM-V1 Wireless Microphone, the audio level indicator will be displayed automatically.
  • When the audio level meter reaches the red point (0 dB), the sound may be distorted.
  • If the audio level is too high and the sound gets distorted, activate the microphone attenuator with the [
    ] > [Microphone Attenuator] setting (or [Surround Mic Attenuator] when the optional SM-V1 Surround Microphone is attached to the camcorder).
  • We recommend using headphones to check the sound level while adjusting the audio recording level or when the microphone attenuator is activated.
  • If shooting with the camcorder inside the WP-V4 Waterproof Case (sold separately), please see
