HMC150/ 151 audio recording hiss issue

Hi there,

I recently purchased the HMC151 camcorder to use with my current sennheiser mke 2-4-3 gold lavalier microphone.

My previous camcorder was a Sony PD150P ( from the dinosaur era) which produced crystal clear sound with the sennheiser microphone.

However on the panasonic HMC151 the audio unusable due to a high level of hiss.

We've tried different cable combinations, gain, channel and input settings to no avail.

Does any one have any insight on this? Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!

Are you still having a problem with this?

I have an HMC151 and we've not had a problem with the sound so far. We're using a Rhode NTG-2 with Phantom Power turned on. It's worth trying the phantom power switch to see whether it is on or not, I've had that give a bit of hiss in the past. More a sort of hum perhaps.

Is that right, you're in Glastonbury? UK?? I'm just up the M5 in Gloucester. If you want to try the mic on a different camera, to see if it's still a problem, then just let me know. I'd be happy to help.
