Hi all, I just bought a miniDV recorder, the Canon ZR40. I created a post here: click me! I have noticed the microphone is so sensitive that it picks up the tape transport noise/hum. Is this common to all miniDV camcorders? If not, maybe I should return this model for one that doesn't have that problem. Otherwise the sound is phenominal! And I love the size of the camera, as well as the features. Thanks in advance! Mike D.
