Can I still use the microphone?
Yes, you can use the microphone. And for the average private and professional camera work, the results are definitely acceptable.
The sound will be transmitted through the foil. Alas there will be a certain loss in quality against the use outside the housing. The sound will be somewhat muffled and, especially with very small camcorders, you could be capturing more of the tape-drives mechanical noises as under normal conditions. We have also got pouches for mobile phones and VHF radios. These can also be used while inside the pouch with only about 5% loss in sound quality.
If you need perfect sound, while protecting your valuable asset, please enquire about our cable outlet for up to 4 cables, absolutely water proof.
