Yes, I know I should have used an external mic! But never noticed it on this camera so much as now--maybe because I've mostly shot outdoors. But I'm now editing and the whirr of the tape in the camera (or just the camera itself) just seems SO loud to me. Know it's not possible to eliminate entirely, but any tips on anything I can do to reduce it as much as possible? I'm using Premiere Elements 4. Thanks everybody!
