Setting the Microphone (VIXIA GX10 / LEGRIA GX10)


The camcorder features 2-channel MPEG-4 AAC-LC audio recording and playback. You can record audio using the built-in microphone, the mini advanced shoe and optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone or the MIC terminal (commercially available microphones).
When recording outdoors in the open, the built-in microphone may record loud audible wind noise. In such cases, using an external microphone with a foam cover or wind screen is recommended.

Connect the optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone

Using the DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone you can accurately record audio mainly from the direction where the camcorder is pointing. To reduce wind noise, attach the wind screen supplied with the microphone. Refer also to the instruction manual of the DM-100.

1. Open the mini advanced shoe cover ().

2. Attach the optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone () to the mini advanced shoe.
When a compatible accessory is attached to the mini advanced shoe, will appear on the screen.

Connect other external microphones to the MIC terminal

To the MIC terminal you can attach commercially available condenser microphones with their own power supply, and a φ 3.5 mm stereo mini plug.

  • When using an optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone attached to the camcorder, if you operate the zoom while recording, the microphone may pick up and record lens operation sounds.
  • When using an external microphone, if you use the built-in Wi-Fi functions while recording, noise may be recorded due to interference from the wireless communication. With microphones connected to the MIC terminal, if possible, keep the microphone away from the camcorder while recording.
