shotgun MIC install , ch1 XLR or Mic in? which

so , i finally got a shotgun mic for my xh-a1. On the shotgun mic end is an xlr , should i connect it to my ch1 xlr or to the mic input on the side of canons(mic) ontop of the camera? would going into the ch1 xlr be a better choice since xlr is grounded. better for less ground noise.


Thanks,

Chris

Use the XLR plug and go through the menu to change the audio input to XLR. If you connect to the "mic in" plug, you need an adapter - an extra connection that may affect the sound quality.
