"Used A/V out ... instead of Mic - in ... can damage the D7000?"
New York, US
In a very dark situation ... I did, mistakenly, plugged the Line to mic DSLR cable from the Zoom H4n stereo recorded, to the D7000 A/V out connector and, I took some video with the recorder on, to capture sound from an external source.
Could this mistake have damaged the Camera? I noticed some "not so good sound" coming out ... when I used the V/A out connector of the camera, to connect to a TV.
Thank You very much for any help to understand if I damaged the D7000 or the Zoom H4n recorder ... in fact, after shooting video, I tried to review it, with still the zoom attached to the video/audio out connector of the camera.
