I'm not satisfied with the on-board mic on the Cannon GL1. I tried using a Sennheiser 416 with phantom power (into the XLR adapter box) but there wasn't enough gain. Is there a microphone that's compatible with the GL1?
People have suggested I use a wireless into a mixer to boost the gain. But I'd like to record with as little equipment as possible. Is there a wired mic that can do the job?
We would need to know the input specifications of the camera as well as what style of microphone you are looking for.
The following link describes how to connect a microphone to a camcorder.
