Thanks Trevmar.

I do have a Studio1productions.com adapter that I'll be using with the Rode.

This one:

Forgot to add...

I have tested the Rode with the above adapter it works well if I plug the Rode VideoMic's 1/8" plug directly into the 1/8" socket on the adapter. I can adjust volume and it sounds superb.

What I'm still trying to figure out is how to use the Rode VideoMic with this XLR adapter here:

http://www.fullcompass.com/product/235523.html



I connected the Rode to this adapter and then I plugged this adapter into a standard XLR cable, which I ran to my Studio1productions.com adapter's XLR input and I ran into a puzzling problem. The experiment was so brief... I may have overlooked something. I'm going to try again and figure it out.

EDIT: I learned that, to successfully use this Rode adapter, I needed to use a www.studio1productions.com adapter WITH A LINE/MIC SWITCH and the switch has to be set to "MIC." Then everything works great.

I also have an earlier model Studio1productions.com adapter that features a line/mic toggle switch and I think I'm going to try that one. That might work properly with the Rode XLR adapter.

Well. I thoughtI go again and look at the Amazon.com site sold out, and spoofee had a free ship, and 15% off knocking this badboy down. I just cannot hit the buy button, something , just something is holding my finger back.

Oh yes you can. And then you have to choose which one to take with you. Let's see, wil I use the Kodak v1253, the v1073, the Z1012, the C875 or my Panny ZS3 today? I just can't make up my mind.. the z1012 has a peep-thru viewfinder, and I will be taking a lot of pictures outdors, but the C875 takes the best colors in the sun, and the ZS3 is much easier to fit in my pocket. Let's see...

Oh - wait - I will take the Canon HF100 because I need smooth video.

Decisions, decisions...
