View Full Version : Monitoring audio from cam via headphones

2010-11-15, 10:34 AM
I have a rode svm and for the first time since ive had the mic and cam( canon hv30 ) i used the headphone input.As so far ive not had great results wit the mic,i thought being abale to hear what it was recording would be the best idea.So i plug in my headphones,and it buzzes,and that mainly in one side if the headphones.Audio can be made out underneath the buzzing,but its not right.Ive tried 2 sets of headphones with the same result,im just wondering if the headphone input is fucked.Anyone have any other suggestions why this might be happening.

is their buzzing on the recorded audio? if not, i'd say the headphone jack is buggered

Sorry,i think you misunderstood.I had a new tape in the cam,and the cam was on pause.It was just a test to get used to using the mic with headphones.I have'nt recorded any audio,i was just playing my stereo to get a rough idea,and i could just about hear the audio from my stereo through the static/buzzing sound.
