    Audio channels - confusion

    I use a Canon xl-1s minidv from time to time where I work... and from time to time when somelse uses it, audio settings get changed. I'm still relatively new to using mini-dv's. Frustrating for me!

    Problem: I have got some intvws ending up on the camera's mic instead of the plug-in mic that I want to use. What's the correct setting on this camera to make absolutely sure that the sound I'm getting is from my handheld or lapel mic, and not from the camera's mic?

    What's the difference between audio channels, sound 1 and sound 2 on the camera? TIA.

    You can find the operating manual for the XL1 here. It's about 3MB. The audio selection stuff is on pages 36 to 39. Hope this helps.
