Hi Don,

Mic ATT setting on XL2 won't work for a LINE IN voltage coming from a standard FPM (Field Mixer). Signal levels are still way too high. You really need a MIC to LINE IN pad. I tested it myself before I committed to purchasing dual PSC pads. Now a very happy user.

That is what I said - pad the input signal down to -35 dBV. For a +4 dB line level, that would call for a nominal 40 dB pad.

I know Canon is releasing new XL2's without the film grain effect... is there any chance they also fixed this mic/line issue as well?

No. There is no chance of that.

Wow. That's a major disappointment. I still can't believe they would forget such a basic component of professional video. Sometimes Canon just puzzles me.
