Hi there. I seem to have a problem in not been able to record audio on my 2xSony Z5s and a Sony Z7. If I am videoing a show or music concert I sometimes use an audio mixer with several mics. The mixer is then outputted to a camera and connected via the 'Line in' sockets. No matter which switch setting I use for the input selections, I cannot get audio into the camera via 'Line input', BUT I do get the audio when I select the 'Mic' settings.
I thought that perhaps there could be a fault with the camera but this is happening with all three cameras. Am I missing something here? Is there a setting in the menu somewhere? I have read the instruction books for both Z5 and Z7 and can't find any info there. All I can think is that perhaps all three cameras are faulty on the Line in circuit!! Any ideas would be most helpful. Cheers.
