how can I get ch. 1 audio to go to left headphone, ch. 2 to right?

Hi there,
Is there some setting I can change so that, when I'm wearing headphones, I hear audio from channel 1 in my left ear, and audio from channel 2 in my right?
Thanks,
Malcolm

You mean apart from wearing the headphones the other way round?
(Sorry - someone was going to say it sooner or later, I just got there first).

More usefully: do you mean when you are monitoring audio from the camera when recording?
I suspect you might need a specially wired adaptor cable for that.

Hi Colin,
You know it had occurred to me to wear the headphones the other way around, but having the cord dangling on the right side just wouldn't work for me I'm a creature of habit, I guess.
And yes, I do mean when I'm recording in the field, and monitoring the audio.
I mean, what difference does it make, right? But for me, there's just something more intuitive about channel 1 going to my left ear and channel 2 to the right. Don't know what that means about the wiring in my brain... maybe that's what needs to be recalibrated.
Cheers, Malcolm
