No, it's not a phantom power mic, also it has only a minijack plug.

Ok,

Maybe someone can explain better than me but I'll try my best.
So, the Bias is only the fixed +3V on the Mic (Plug in Power) used for the original camcorder mic alim.

To use another mic you can choice the mic you want.
- Some needs Phantom Power (not provide on this camcorder), it's necessary to use external unit (ex : Beachtek DXA6)
- some needs internal battery (ex : Rode NTG2)
- Some works alone (ex : Shure SM58)

The last thing is to convert from balanced to unbalanced for this you can use a Beachtek DXA2s.

sony sholder vs pansonic sholder camera I need to decide which at BH Photo

The panasonic is the... AG-HMC70 the sony is the Sony HVR-HD1000

Guess I need to decide in the next few hours... yes examine the audio on the panasonic also.

The panasonic records to dshc cards and has xlrs but no focus ring. I wonder also which optical image stab, is better? sony's or panasonic?

I'm sure you will do the best choice for your needs.

HVR- HD1000 is HDV
AG-HMC70 is AVCHD

They are not the same HDV vs AVCHD.

Comparaison test (not complet)

Good choice, and give us news

the two cameras....

It is a hard choice between these cameras... I wonder which is better at lower light.

I probaby need to spend about 8k for a camera to do all I want plus be light sensitive but.... that is more than I have to spend!

I wonder if sony vegas 8 handles the avchd format well too... I know it will work well with hdv.

sony compact flash units...

a pity the ones that fits a couple of the other units will not work with this... I wonder how it interfaces.....



the sony looks a little nasty at 12 lux in this comparison table... I wish it showed what the payy looked like...
