"Video Playback on d5000 has audio hissing"


US
          

I've tried taking quite a few live video shots on my d5000 but all my videos have audio problems. The hissing sound is always present on playback and i have to minimize the audio to hear the sound. Am i missing some setup, or is my d5000 defective? I bought my camera used on ebay and it only has 5K shutter count

There is a limiter and crude compression that would increase noise if there is no or low audio being picked up by the mic. But from my guessing that the sound is similar to a D90, actually the D5000 ought to be a little better, the noise level generated by the recorder and mic preamplifier is pretty low.
If you record a clip in a quiet room and then speak loudly near the mic sound port, how much change in volume do you hear when shifting from ambient noise to loud voice? Could you post the noise sound and a quiet room recording that has normal speaking voices within about 5 feet of it? That would allow a comparison of noise floor to nominal signal level. I suppose you would need to post it to an FTP site for us to download.

A few things to note is that the mic is intended for controlled environments. Outdoors usually has way too much wind and air movement noise to record without a high level of noise unless special noise cancelling or wind adapted mic covers are used. Make your tests in a quiet room.

I did have some video's created indoors and when i played them back i don't hear the hissing noise. I'm only hearing the hissing sound when taking outdoor video's. So i guess d5000 has problems recording outdoor videos due to wind/air movement? I don't think the d5000 can accept a plug-in device for noise cancelling microphone, is it possible?

The general oppinion seems to be that all DSLRs by all the makers have bad internal audio systems. For anything less than 100% controled environments, you end up needing external mics at a minimum. At least from what I have been reading in multiple sites/forums.

And that is why professionals have those dust mops on long poles when outside. You need a a windscreen of some kind over the microphone.

You might want to consider an external microphone with a windscreen and vibration isolation mount.

Next would be a stabilization and follower system to improve the video and a stereo recording system that you could sync to and overlay the camera's mono recording.

Thanks for all the comments. I guess i just have to record videos from my real video recorder rather than tying to make use of d5000 video recording option, Or mute the sound when video recording on d5000 outdoors
