Thread: Canon GL2 Audio...

  1. #1

    Default Canon GL2 Audio...


    I'm looking to buy a Canon GL2 camcorder for my independent films...

    I know that the camera has a mic mounted on top of it, and adapters can be placed on it... but I just want to be sure: Can I hook up boom microphones w/ extensions to this camera, rather than using it's shotgun mic?

    Thanks for the help.

    as long as you have a mic on the boom with a 3.5mm jack to fit into the camera yes.
    if the mic is an xlr the you will need an adapter or to recored to a dedicated audio device. keep in mind you may need to use a phantom power source if the mic does not hold a battery.

    im certainly not expert on this but i think what i have told you is pretty much correct but others may be able to let you know lots more about how to get the best set up

    So, what do you think about these?:

    Azden Shotgun Microphones - Shotgun Mic Azden SGM-1X, SGM-2X and SGM-1000
    XLR Adapter - XLR Adapter to mini plug for video cameras

    These should be able to hook up to the cam, I suppose?

    Thanks for the reply, btw. I appreciate it.

    they look just fine... but before you goahead and buy them get a few more people to advise you. better to be safe than sorry
