Using an External Microphone


When recording in very quiet surroundings, the built-in microphone may pick up the sound of the camcorders machinery. In such case, we recommend using an external microphone.

Using the WM-V1 Wireless Microphone

Using the optional WM-V1 Wireless Microphone, you can reliably record sound even when recording subjects at a distance exceeding the practical range of the built-in microphone. For details on connecting and using the WM-V1, refer to the instruction manual supplied with the microphone.

Using Commercially Available Microphones

You can also use commercially available condenser microphones with their own power supply. You can connect almost any stereo microphone with a 3.5 mm plug but audio recording levels may vary.

  • When you are using a microphone connected to the MIC terminal, the audio level indicator will be displayed automatically.
