the first time I used my pd170 with the ECM-NV1 mic in a loud environment I did experience clipping. I switched to an audio technica AT-897, and haven't had a problem since. I work as a crew chief on a top fuel blown injected motorcycle that makes 1100 horsepower, and lotsa noise. I stand within 5 feet of the bike with the camera when it launches. we use the audio and video for technical data. A helpful tip has been to run the mic into both channels, and set them at different volumes, to lessen the chances of the camera itself clipping.
Hope this helps.
