I recently purchased the HMC151 camcorder to use with my current sennheiser mke 2-4-3 gold lavalier microphone.
My previous camcorder was a Sony PD150P ( from the dinosaur era) which produced crystal clear sound with the sennheiser microphone.
However on the panasonic HMC151 the audio unusable due to a high level of hiss.
We've tried different cable combinations, gain, channel and input settings to no avail.
Does any one have any insight on this? Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.
