Mic-in question... is it possible?
« on: August 27, 2007, 11:53:46 PM »
hello
it might sound stupid but oh well..

i have a HC42 sony camcorder and i've been using HST1 mic plugged in the active interface shoe... it gives me pretty decent audio, but it became really hard to stealth with a big thing like that..

i did a little research and found this:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/479976-REG/Sony_VMCK100_VMC_K100_Microphone_Adapter_Cable.html

so, if i got it right, i'll have a mic-in jack in my camcorder..

but then, searching about this adapter.. i found this: "...caused by the 2.1 v of 'plug in power' that it's jack puts out"
http://www.sonyhdvinfo.com/printthread.php?t=9137

and this: "This Adapter offers Plug-in-Power of 2,4 Volts to power a microphone"
http://cgi.ebay.at/Sony-VMC-K100-AIS-Adapter-zu-3-5mm-MicBuchse-VMCK100_W0QQitemZ140151368144QQihZ004QQcategoryZ18610QQcmdZViewItem

i'm not sure, but as it seems, this adapter provides 2,0~2,5v of plug-in-power...

so i want to know if i can - or if it would make any sense actually - plug a battery box/preamp (wich one?) to this mic-in (in order to use my church cardioids, for example) or just stick with those "camcorder mics" such as sony ECM-MS907?



thanks

I don't have any experience with this, but I don't see why this shouldn't work fine with a battery box.  The box will just provide more power to your mics and pass the mic signal through to the shoe interface. 

My son sometimes uses a little SoundPros preamp and AT943 mics into a line-in jack on his Sony digicam (not sure what model he's got) and it's a big improvement over the integrated mics, but a preamp might overload your mic-in interface.
