Default Hissing sound on the Z700 Camcorder

Greetings Everyone:

I recently purchased a Z700 Camcorder and a wireless microphone.

When I use the Wireless Microphone there is a hissing sound on the
audio track.

I've done a search on Steve's Digicams forum to find a solution and
one answer from FishyComics is use magix movie edit pro 12 plus
or 15plus, because this Video editing software has a dehisser filter.

Would a better quality External Mic (Shure, etc) take away the hissing?


If I connect an External Stereo Mic solve the problem?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards Robert

I think it would be unlikely that an external microphone would result in no hiss.

The audio circuitry of these sub-$200 digicams is not the best.

I can confirm that Magix does feature a de-hisser and other noise removal features that do work amazingly well.

In addition, one can always buy a separate audio recording device with higher quality.

how can I reply to this, troubleshoot

video record with the camcorder itself, then the external with the tv playback cable plugged to the ext port.


if you do not get any noise, then your answer lies , to your external source, having whateverissue or not it is that may cause the hiss, poor ground, supressor etc.

magi has the soundediting and a few additions. any editor may have a eq setting and can lower certain frequencies

hope that helps out
These are Pc low Budget Economy Hybrid camcorders Great for the Daytime Outdoor shots
