Canon GL2 with MA-300 adapter - audio static
on Jun 13, 2014 at 10:03:02 pm

Hey fellas... I've been dealing with an ongoing issue for about three years. The problem is that sometimes there is suddenly static in my recordings. Here's my set up:

Canon GL2 on a stationary tripod (doesn't move)
MA-200 Adapter with XLR input to a Sure Wireliess mic set
Lapel mic and receiver on me at a whiteboard with minimal moving
Lapel is positioned away from any clothing and doesn't rub anything

Static is sporadic. May film 2 tapes and nothing. Then suddenly there's static intermittently during a record (heard when played back in VCR mode or after uploaded to final cut).

Things I've tried:
Threw away a set Sure set up and tried a second one.
Moved to a new location to film.
Had my Canon GL2 serviced (tune up)

I've about given up. I have no idea what else to try. I never know when it's going to happen. And sometimes that means I have to film sections of a tape twice.

Any suggestions or help would be GREATLY appreciated!
