Looking for suggestions on external mic for occasional use. Any third party suggestions? Fuji mic is nice but pricey. Thanks!
Hi guys, I have a cheap lav mic with a 1/8" cable that isn't producing any audio when plugged in to the XT200. I played with the mic gain settings in the camera's menu, but still no help. The built-in mic works fine but obviously would like improved audio quality. Does this camera require a powered microphone to be used instead? Anything I'm missing something as far as settings go? Does something need to be turned 'on'? I'm new to the camera game and upgraded from my iPhone, which obviously was working with this mic w/o any problem. Thanks in advance!
Hello all, My apologies if this is not the correct area to post this, as I am new here. I am about to pull my hair out, as I can not get the Takstar mic to work with my X-T100. I purchased a 2.5mm / 3.5mm jack adapter on Amazon to plug them together. I tried both sound settings of "Mic" and "Remote" in which "remote" picks up noise from the camera's microphone and the "mic" setting picks up nothing at all, I just hear a white, airy noise and nothing else. Has anyone encountered this and are there any solutions out there? My head hurts. Thank you!
I know Fuji cameras are bad at video and you need to be really careful to get anything worth looking at (use a tripod to avoid shake-related jaggies, avoid moiré-inducing textures, use MF to avoid focus hesitation), but I have some things I want to record and so far the ability to use my f/1.4 primes means my X-T10 is still probably the best way to get it done. Assuming I can record something that looks good, I still need to figure out audio, as the internal mic is obviously just okay, and if my 35mm f/1.4 is ever in AF mode the noise it makes re-adjusting focus is really really loud. So what will I need to use an external mic with the X-T10? I know the mic jack is 2.5mm rather than the more common 3.5mm. Has anyone gotten an adapter to work for it? When I look at adapters on Amazon a lot of them specifically mention that the microphone won't work but they are talking about headphone+mic "headsets" rather than e.g. a small lavalier mic plugged in (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-107121-2-5mm-Adaptor-Plated/dp/B005KP2AJY/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1441477003&sr=1-7&keywords=2.5mm+3.5mm+microphone ). Anyone have an adapter they bought that they know works with Fuji cameras? In terms of the mic itself I'm leaning towards this Audio Technica lavalier mic because it's pretty cheap, has a long cord and will also work with my iPhone if I want to record sepearately and sync up later. http://www.amazon.ca/Audio-Technica-ATR3350IS-Lavalier-Microphone-Smartphones/dp/B00HZA6EJO/ref=pd_cp_267_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0GB9Z66AP2R02AWFTF07 Anyone know a reason why this wouldn't work with my X-T10+an adapter? Advice for a better setup to use with X-T10? Thanks for any advice about what I should buy, or also any general advice about audio recording on Fuji cameras.
