Mic level limiter

1 year 7 months ago #682344 by pjdestexhe

I've got an audio question about my FZ300 FZ330.

It's possible to turn on or off what is called the level limiter. (in the movie settings)

Question 1 : Is this level limiter the AGC (automatic gain control) I read so much about on the web ? I know that not every camera allows you to turn the AGC off, if I'm right it is not possible on the FZ200 for instance.

Question 2 : How comes it's still possible to adjust the Mic Level when the level limiter is on ? I read on this website https://www.braybaroque.ie/photo/fz300/sound.html that it's not possible, but my experience proves it wrong, and there is a difference in audio quality between a - 12dB gain and a +6 dB gain recording even when the level limiter is on.

Perhaps as no-one here seems to have an easy answer - maybe you will find some info via Graeme Houghton's UK site


Hope this helps
