Noise issue with GH4 and external recorder
I recently bought a Tascam DR-70D to use with my GH4. It produces really high quality audio but my big problem is that when I attach the camera out on the Tascam to the mic input on the GH4, I am getting a lot of noise, or 'hiss'.
I emailed Tascam and they said that it shouldn't be an issue with the 70D and to try different cables - I've tried 3 different cables and still getting the hiss. They mentioned that it might be something wrong with the camera settings; I've played about with that and still nothing. Sound works perfectly when plugging a mic straight into the GH4.
Does anyone know of any solutions? It's kind of a pain not being able to use the Tascam as a pre-amp.
