I have a Canon Vixia HD Camcorder which has a 3.5mm stereo input and yet cannot get stereo sound input from a wireless microphone system when using the 1/4" outlet plug and using an adapter down to 3.5mm plug into the camcorder.
I want to record in stereo,but it appears the only way to do it is with a balanced output and an adapter from a balanced 3 prong plug and then use a 3.5mm adapter plug to plug into the input on the camcorder. Or I seem to have to run the 3 prong through a mixer and then use an output to the camcorder. All of that sounds too complex and unnecessary to me. I'd like to know if there's a simpler and more elegant way to accomplish it.
