Hi there, just wondered if anyone else is having problems with their D800 audio?
The sound is fine using the built-in camera mic (although obviously poor quality) but as soon as I plug in any external mic I get really noticeable background hiss. I've tried the ME-1, a Sennheiser radio mic, a wired lavalier mic but they all behave the same - any sound monitored and recorded has a strong background noise that renders it unusable.
I've tried changing the input levels from auto to manual, from low to high, headphone levels from low to high, but the hiss is always there. Recording the same audio with my Zoom HN4 shows no problems at all.
Am I missing something obvious? Or has the D800 a really bad audio circuit with plug-in mics?
