I just found this problem myself. This is a shot stopper for me. I get about 50% hiss when I plug in a mic.

Anyone have any more news on this issue?

Seeing this thread spurred me on to try my 7D with an external mic.

Using a Sony ECM-909A stereo microphone I have no issues at all and that is with FW 2.0

There is no excessive hiss and that is in both manual and auto level mode. The meters show nothing untoward behaving just as one would expect level meters to behave.

So the plot thickens as they say.

On the plus side having now tried my microphone I am galvanised to configure a mounting solution for it on the camera now. Out with the box of useful bits and see what I can conjure up

I wondered why the ball kept getting bigger, then it hit me.
