So I bought a Sony HXR-MC50E second hand and I did not do my homework to then find the Sony does not have an option to turn of AGC on the audio. So when I plug in my Rode videomic pro, all I get is a loud hissing noise.
I have done tests to see if it is the Rode. It is not. And other people have complained about other Sony camcorders having this problem.
So I've decided to downgrade it I suppose. I was looking at the Canon HF S30 and Panasonic TM900 before getting the Sony. But looks like I'm faced with the same decision. Can't decide which one to get. I'm leaning more towards the Panasonic.
So can anyone point me in the right direction? Or suggest another camcorder to look at?
Thank you in advance
