😄 i just don't understand how you recorded 2 years without checking your footage. I always check before shooting to ensure everything is spot on working, and even after shooting to see if i properly exposed, if the sound is all right and so on.

What about checking the audio while recording? If you would've used a headset (which is a must if you are using a professional video) to listen and check audio levels while recording, you would've noticed the mistake.

Is it possible that the OP plugged the microphone into the headphone jack, but didn't use headphones, so the built-in microphone was still live, and so there is audio recorded, but but it was audio from the built in microphone, rather than the intended professional microphone? That would explain not spotting this sooner.

On my Sony cameras the microphone socket is red, and the headphone socket is not. And both are labelled with little icons - the headphone socket with a headphone symbol, and the microphone socket with a microphone symbol - the microphone one could be confused, but eh headphone one is pretty clear.

Which camera model are you using? Does yours have the little icons next to the sockets, and is the microphone socket red?

Many video recorders have separate microphone and audio jacks. Those are 3-pin ones. Sometimes there may be some combination, it is described in manuals, but for some products, yes, there are 4-pins for both microphone and headset in one 3.5mm jack.

And, still not standardized. There are two different pinouts "Apple" (Left Audio, Right Audio, Ground, Mic) and "Nokia" (Left Audio, Right Audio, Mic, Ground).

Of course, best practice is to immediately, after first video being taken, to check, play it at camera itself, or even better at some other device. Not good to check that next day, not to mention next year.

For that purpose, there are many, many card readers, to be used with smartphones, tablets, laptops. I have at least 3 of those every time I am making photos or videos. Easy to use, not heavy, not expensive. And, good for avoiding problems.

Dude, there is a symbol of a mic next to the mic port and a headphone icon next to the headphone port. Stop putting the blame on someone else and just accept you messed up.

That would be unusual. Normally you would want to plug in a microphone cable into one jack, and headphones into another. Separate cables, because the mike would be pointed at the person being recorded, and the headphones would be on the person doing the recording.

The only time I would imagine plugging a “headset” into a mike + headphones jack would be if you were recording a commentary / voice over. 

I don’t think this one can be blamed on Sony.

You failed to look before plugging, its RED & has a Symbal.

But also if your using the internal ADC to record audio with the video and not checking your levels with some actaully good quality  IEMs or refrance overears, Before a shoot then it does not matter what your doing thats a key mistake as there is no auto-gain, so your better off using a dedicated 32-bit float field recorder on a cage like a Zoom F2 these days if you want a thoughtless hit and go setup.

Also it should be noted, phone users cant tell the diffrnace between TS/TRS/TRRS 2/3/4 poll jack configs untill they learn about it, ware as all dedicated equipment has 1/4" (6.5mm) and XLR for input & 3.5mm, 1/4" (6.5mm) for monitoring by defacto.

    • Have you used and compared the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS with the 2X teleconverter to the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS for birds and other wildlife?  I'm considering the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS (I already have the 2x teleconverter) to replace the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS. I've scoured the web but can't find many helpful direct comparisons.  Application, Environment and Background Info I walk 10-20 kilometres every morning on the southwest coast of British Columbia. It's winter, and in my area that means it's dark and dreary with lots or rain. There are all kinds of birds, from Bald Eagles to Swallows, Hummingbirds and plenty of shorebirds, with many passing through on their migratory paths.  I carry an A1 and FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS and an A7 IV with a FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS or FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II for closer opportunities and landscapes.  I'm happy with the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS when the light is good, but I'm in the middle of six months of this rainy season, so I'm usually shooting at 600 mm, f/6.3, 1/500 sec for stationary subjects, and 1/2000-1/4000 for things on the move. My ISO is often above 6400.  I don't use a tripod or monopod. I'm always on the move. I frequently crop to 200%.  I rarely do videos. I don't shoot sports. The FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS serves me well for large birds like Bald Eagles when the light is good.  Although I'm almost always at the long end (600 mm) of the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS, I use the zoom when a large bird approaches or for distant landscapes. I don't mind the weight of carrying two cameras with these lenses. Things I hope to change or improve Greater agility with a lighter, shorter lens I struggle to move the lens fast enough to catch swallows and other small birds in flight. I do much better with the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II, but I can't fill the frame with that lens.  I can sometimes keep up with those smaller, faster birds, even with the 2x teleconverter, but I still want more reach. Exploring with the 300 mm, fast prime lens I like the idea of expanding my photography as I look for subjects I can capture at 300mm at f/2.8 (people and pet portraits outside, musical acts on stage). Although I have tended to use zoom lenses (FE PZ 16-35 MM F4 G, FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS, FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II), I got the FE 50mm F1.2 GM and have enjoyed having to work with the fixed focal length and how that leads me in different directions. I wonder if I would find the same thing with the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS. Depth of Field and Bokeh I'm unsure if the shallow depth of field and bokeh will make a big difference for me. But I may find that these attributes present new opportunities like the FE 50mm F1.2 GM. Here's what I think will happen. I'll use the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS without the teleconverter on dreary days. I have used the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II (sometimes with the 2X teleconverter) for those days. I'll use the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS with the 2X teleconverter when there's better light.  Expectations of the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS with 2X teleconverter  The focus accuracy and speed with the 2X teleconverter will match or better the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS  The image quality will be at least as good as the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS  I'm happy with the image quality using the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II and 2X teleconverter and can tolerate the slightly slower focus speed. I imagine the results will be similar with the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS but at least as good or better than the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS  It will be easier to track small birds in flight with the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS with 2X teleconverter (1675 grams) vs FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS (2115 grams). The difference is 340 grams (12 oz) and 5.1 cm in length. That should make a difference, right?  Questions Have you tried both? What are your experiences? Will you keep the FE 200–600 mm F5.6–6.3 G OSS? Are my expectations realistic? Thanks for reading and thinking about this with me.
    • One post hit and run.  They must have figured it out. 
    • Other than your disapproval of the stripes.... they're kinda cool. 🫣
