I have a Canon Vixia HF200. I thought the Canon Mic DM100 would solve all my audio problems, but just did a sound test and its heartbreakingly bad. I have covered the mic with a fleece wind sock. (K Tek) I want to film a guy talking in a garden, there is a road quite near by. I had Mic attenuator off (not sure what this does) the problem is that when i set the mic level hi enough to hear him well, there is all this additional noise, its not being made by people its just noise through out the whole recording. I've got the mic set on shot gun, and camera quite near the subject, but it sounds crap. Did I get the wrong mic? Would I be better with a lavelier mic? I got the mic on ebay so i have no manual........... am I missing something????
