[Noah Kadner]"Er sorry- it's not that kind of camera. Professional = non-auto audio."
Well that's not entirely true. There is a function called ALC (auto level control) in the recording set up menu which when set to on supposedly reduces distortion at high input levels, although it does say in the manual that it doesn't change the audio signal recording level.
Yes exactly, however when you are using the inputs 1 & 2 for external sources, the onboard stereo mic automatically gets routed to tracks 3 & 4 and if you have ALC on it does act as a control for the level of the onboard mic as there is no manual control in that situation.
