Sony FDR-X3000R Rode SmartLav+ Microphone Problems

[ Edited ]

Hi there,


I have a problem with my Rode SmartLav+ microphone connected via Rode SC3 3.5mm TRRS to TRS Adapter for smartLav. It records sound randomly. Depends of its humor. Sometimes I hear it loud while playing the record. A second later I hear it very quiet like from camera internal mic.I wonder if this is camera fault, adapter fault or Microphone fault. The Microphone works quite well with my iphone (using another adapter). My questrion is if you can recommend good lavalier mic for this camera which I can just plug and play? Without using any TRRS to TRS adaters? Case I think and hope it is adapters fault Smiley Sad


Really ****** of to notice that the sound is srewed up after coming back from event far away from home Smiley Sad


Thank you for your help!

Simply get a microphone with TRS connector.

If the RODE lav-mic works with your phone, yet not with the adapter, either such an adapter does not work unless certain criteria are meet, or they simply don't work properly at all.
