I would, but I have an extremely slow land line connection. By the time I uploaded a sample, Canon would be releasing the HV30.

Same here... I kept my Rode Videomic when I sold my GL2(and replaced it with XH A1). I planned on using the Videomic for a smaller companion camcorder, which turned out to be the HV20... unfortunately, I experience the same problem... I ordered a Canon DM-50 and it should be here in a couple of day. It's no Videomic, but perhaps it will not pick up as much camera noise, no? :) Worst case scenario, I'll use the big AT stereo shotgun mic that I'm using on my XH A1... althought it will look really, really on on my little HV20. <grin>

Hi Leila,

How did that DM-50 work out? Getting good audio or are you picking up the motor whine and zoom?

best,

I got the DM-50 and am spending the weekend shooting with it. So far, I've taken recordings of a picnic, some nature, and even a trip to Disneyland. I got good audio without any motor/zoom noise at all whatsoever. I had the DM-50 set to Stereo 1 the whole time, btw.

On a side note, I think it's too bad that this thread is continuing to get a large number of hits. It's a very bad representation of a great camcorder IMO. I'm getting the feeling that some people are reading the first post and not continuing to read the fact that the original person solved the problem.
