I'm using a Rode NTG-3 with my Canon-XA 10. It's a hot mic and I've had clipping issues in the past. I usually use the attenuator. I'm curious if this is always the best move.
Here is audio from the same interview. Some of it with the attenuator on and some of it with it off. Which is better? Is the attenuator on good enough? It's a weaker signal....but it doesn't ever clip.
