Pocket 4K Audio clicking

PostWed Sep 25, 2019 11:48 am

Hi, I am using my new Sony UWP-D lavalier on my Pocket 4K connected to the 3.5mm jack . Sometimes I get weired sound clicks. Like the audio cable is getting pulled out. But the cable is correct pluged it. I had this in an interview when I changed the headphone level. I am using the Tilta Cage with NP-F Batteries. Maybe somebody knows something? Here is an example clip: https://we.tl/t-oomuWKGk3R

Thank you very much.

Sounds like a bad cable with an intermittent connection issue. ;)

Or perhaps a loose connection. If the cable ends have locking connectors, screw them down.

Hi, thanks for answering. I thought the same. I checked the cables (They are brand new). I checked the connection. Everything was all right. So why was this clicking when the camera was on a tripod, adjusting the headphone volume very gently on the screen? Maybe some internal electric problem?

I noticed this clicking behavior with my Pocket 6K today. I was editing a bunch of interviews, and on the audio, I occasionally would hear like a click, or pop. This is not caused by the mic as it is a Sanken CS3E about 18 inches above actor with a windscreen. On the same set up, the stuff I shot on the second day, has no clicking. Weird.
