->> Chasing a 2-layered problem with my DSLR audio. I am using a Sony UTX-B2/URX-P2 wireless mic into a D800.

Problem 1 is that I am getting terrible hiss. I'm troubleshooting the reason for that, but for now I can fix it in Adobe Premiere Pro using the de-noiser effect. Works great, but that leads me to problem 2:

After adding the de-hiss effect & rendering, it plays clean in the timeline but it doesn't export clean. The hiss pops in and out of the .mov file, seemingly at random. It's 85% clean, and the hiss doesn't seem to correspond to the beginnings or ends of clips.

Seems like there's a YouTube demo for just about every DSLR vid/Adobe Premiere Pro issue or question... but not this.

->> Whenever possible fix the issue prior to the posting stage. I would hunt down where the hiss comes in, take the mic output and put it into something with a known good input (tested with other mic sources). This should help narrow down if it is a mic or cable issue. If those seem good, try a different mic in the camera and see if that has a hiss, thus narrowing to the problem to the camera or environment (light, battery, other accessory nearby, ect.).

Also, be sure you are using the correct type of mic balanced or un-balenced. Using one where the other should be could cause a level issue where-by the level is increased adding static/hiss.

->> Well, my Google searchings for my micro-specific issue kept me unaware that apparently a lot of people have had issues with audio hiss with the D800. I got as far as typing "D800 Aud--" and it auto-completed "D800 Audio Hiss". Huh. I'm surprised this hasn't been more talked about.

So my workaround is most likely going to be to use an external recorder.

Still would like to figure out why my Premiere Pro audio effect gets partially erased on export.

->> I've been using FCP since it was in beta and have not upgraded to FCPX. What are the limitations in Premiere Elements compared to Premiere Pro?
