Loud Pops on Microphone DSLR/H4N direct recording setup

Hi Guys

Always used these forums but never posted. Always helped me before though.

So I am current rigging my Canon 6D DSLR for audio recording. My set up consists of a Zoom H4Nsp plugged into the DSLR via a standard line out cable. A Sennheiser K6/ME66 plugged into the H4N via XLR.

Now here comes the issue. This setup as it stands is getting clear audio APART from occasional huge POPs down the signal. I've checked all the cables and its doesn't seem to be a connection issue. When the POPs occur the DSLR through Magic Lantern reads Microphone Connected. Almost as if the connection keep dropping out.

The strange part is that if I use the build in H4N microphone these POPs don't occur.

If anybody could shed some light on this issue I would be eternally gratefully.

Cheers

James

Do you have the audio levels all the way down on the camera?

Thanks for the reply.

I've tried the camera audio levels down to one notch. I've also used the cameras built in attenuator. The audio levels are fine apart from the loud occasionally pops.

Very confused

Try turning the audio all the way down on the camera and feeding the H4N to the camera. Do you still get the noise?
