Re: Did Sony deliberately cripple the RX10's audio?

To encourage us to buy their XLR microphone adapter??? I wonder.

That adapter costs $800, though, and requires use of a bracket in order to use on the RX10.


I think it's a bit of an overstatement based on a few users that obviously have an issue with audio from the RX10. I don't have that issue and Ed's clip demonstrates he doesn't either. I don't this is any great conspiracy on the part of Sony.

Those of you familiar with Sony camcorders will remember that Sony has had issues like this on some of their far more expensive prosumer units, that were present in all of the units for some models (not just a random unit defect)...it was just the way the preamps were engineered. In fact, in some instances Sony had a firmware update that helped. But this situation is different since it would appear the OP had an issue that was pretty much unique to his sample.
