[QUOTE=gummormarx;2456901]I am considering buying a cannon hv 40 camcorder. I want to use a wireless mic with a 1/8 input. The subject would wear the receiver while I would plug in the transmitter to the camcorder.
Does this camcorder allow you to use a wireless microphone on it?
It says in the specs that it has a mic input. I don’t like the audio that I get from standard camcorder mics and would like to improve it with a wireless mic.[/QUOTE]
Yes, it works with wireless mics. Do some research here:
