Hi, I am using a Panasonic mini-Dv camera, and it has a 1/4 inch jack mic input. Can you record sound at a line level into that input? Such as the output from a PA, 4 track recorder, or stereo? What I am trying to do is film a band practice session but instead of using a mic on the camera (external or internal) I thought it would sound better to run the output from the PA straight into the camera, so you do no’t have all the general noise from the room and outside.
The only input for sound on the camera is the mic jack input socket. There is also a reversed D shaped A/V socket next to it but I think that is output only. i.e audio-video output to use with the red, white and yellow phono leads (with an adapter) into an analogue device. Any help would be appreciated.
