Hi, I've looked tirelessly for an answer that comes close to answering this, but to no avail.
I have a Canon HV20 and purchased an Audio-Technica ATR55 Shotgun Mic and was looking to use it as a boom mic. Unfortunetly, the mic has a permenantly attached 3' cable with a 3.5 mm output plug as opposed to an XLR; the HV20, as you know, has a 3.5 mm input jack. It seems my only option is to get a male/female headphone extension cable, which, from what I've read, will most likely cause interference/noise. Could I possibly get decent or half decent results with this or is there a better solution given said equipment?
Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.
