Camcorder headphone jack

Dear Sir -

I have a Panasonic PV-GS300 (I bought it four years ago and have never used it - talk about procrastination!) As a great admirer of Bill Myers products(I have six of his DVDs) I know how important a headphone jack is, but this camera doesn't have one as far as I can determine. Is there any way to modify or add something that will make this possible?

Thank you - great web site!

Camcorder headphone jack

Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this would work (read that as I haven't tried it yet), but I wonder if it would be possible to monitor the audio through the output jack and adapt the headphones to the RCA plug. The big problem (other than strain relief) would be to figure out if you're listening to the audio before or after recording. Big difference there! Just an opinion...


Hi Charles,

I still have a Panasonic PV-GS400, which is a great digital miniDV camcorder, and it was always a mystery to me why the upgraded(?) version did away with a bunch of manual features as well as the headphone socket.

No one understood what Panasonic were playing at, as the PV-GS250 and the GV400 were so popular and highly regarded.

Oh well. They seem to have learned their lesson as their new 700 series are truly excellent cameras.

I think you may be out of luck regarding a headphone socket though, as I couldn't find anything that would allow you to add a headphone jack via the accessory shoe on top of the camcorder, but if you keep looking, you may be lucky.

The good news is that the Panasonic PV-GS300 produces great standard definition video quality. Just make sure you stand close to the camera if audio is important and make sure you have a quiet recording area.

Hope that helps?
