I just picked up a Beachtek and a Sennheiser me66 k6 microphone kit for my FX1. I've got microphone holder for the Z1U and I've attached it to my FX1 so I can have an onboard mic.
The problem is this microphone picks up everything. If I zoom in and out I can hear it on playback. If I accidently touch the cord running from my microphone to the beachtek XLR input, I can hear it very good. It shouldn't be so sensitive where I would hear noises just by touching the cord.
Is there a sensitivity setting on my camera or on the microphone? I don't want to use a boom pole because I don't have an assistant to follow me.
