    There are videos out there on the use of the zoom H1n as an audio interface, so see if you can find a USB to 3.5mm lead on ebay or amazon and bypass using the ear phone output (it is the earphone out that produces the hiss). Syncing audio is very easy. The Zoom H1N allows you to set a Mark ( audio tone at the start of recording , but I just speak the location and time at the start, this is then on both camera and zoom audio tracks, I then splice the video where the speak ends, and do the...

    I didn't, it still has that awful hiss via the jack. I think a Rode video Pro mic would be better, though I've not tried it. I now use the Zoom H1N and sync the audio from that on the Timeline when editing. If your going for an FZ300 a few things to point out, the Zoom is very fast, and I cannot see a way to slow it down. but there are some serious faults to know about too with the zoom lever and selector dial. I'll add link to a fix for them. I get around them by not needing them, I use...

    I now shoot video with the Panasonic Lumix FZ330, the mic I've been using from camcorder days is the Zoom H1N. All videos on YouTube show connecting the H1N via it's headphone out jack to the mic in port on the camera. (3.5mm-3.5mm). However despite following all instructions and sending the -6db signal to the camera and setting audio accordingly, this method naturally produces a lot of white noise from the mic's earphone output. Is there a way of connecting the mic's USB port to the camera...

    I see filter adapters for the Sony ZV1 that are basically self adhesive stick-ons that then allow the fitting of a variable ND or other filters. Would these fit Panasonic cameras like the TZ90 etc? Are there any out there that are made for the this type of non-changeable lens Panasonic?

    This is odd, It only does it when the mic (Zoom H1N) is too close. Failed to turn on the mic (on it's own tripod) on one clip and no bounce. So tried it with the mic Handheld but two feet above and no bounce. Same indoors on test too, move the mic too close and the bounce is back. Here is a clip with the same mic, but 2-3ft above the camcorder, no bounce. https://youtu.be/vUalj-96K8s

    Thanks, I've had this camera since they were introduced and have never been happy with it. As it is clearly on it's way out, I've found out how to turn it into an NTSC 60fps unit, so it at least matches all modern monitors and mobile phones. I even now tack a variable ND Filter to it and do the whole twice the frame rate thing for shutter speed. The bounce is still there but not so obvious in 60fps, but the footage looks more solid, still not as good as it's competitors. I'll probably pick...
