Thank you for purchasing the WM-V1 Wireless Microphone.
The WM -V1 consists of a microphone (transmitter) unit and a receiver
unit, and was developed for exclusive use with Canon HD camcorders•.
Usi ng Bluetooth wireless communication between the microphone and
receiver, the WM-V1 al lows for high-quality sou nd recordi ng in a variety
of locations. By placing the microphone unit to the lapel area of the
subject's clothing and connecti ng the receiver to the camcorder using
the supplied connecti ng cable, you can record sou nd from faraway
subjects that would be difficu lt to pick up using only the camcorder's
built-in microphone. With camcorder models that feature the Audio
Mix function, you can even mix and record sound from the WM -V1 and
sou nd from the camcorder's bui lt-in microphone.
* Refer to the official Canon Web site, catalog or your camcorder's
instruction manual for details about compatible camcorder models.
Please read these instructions carefully before usi ng the microphone
and keep them for future reference. Refer also to your camcorder's
instruction manual.

Using the windscreen
By attaching the windscreen to the microphone, you can reduce noise
caused by wind or breathing. We recom mend attaching the wi ndscreen
when shooting in outdoor locations.
Inserting batteries in the microphone and receiver units
The WM-V1's units are clearly labeled "MICROPHONE" (fig. 1-A) and
"REC EIVER" (fig. 1-B). Each unit requires one commercially avai lable
battery (not included). Use two AAA (LR06) alkaline batteries or two AAA
(HR03) rechargeable NiMH batteries.
Slide and remove the microphone's battery compartment cover
(fig . 1-1).
Insert one battery matching the+ I - polarity marks (fig . 1-2).
Close the battery compartment cover (fig. 1-3).
Repeat steps 1 to 3 to insert the second battery into the receiver
in the same way.
Connecting the microphone and receiver
Attach the microphone to the subject's clothing and connect the
receiver to the camcorder.
Insert the straight plug of the connecting cable into the receiver's
earphone jack (fig. 2-1).
Using the lapel clip, attach the receiver to the camcorder's grip
belt (fig. 2-2).
Insert the L-shaped plug of the connecting cable into the
camcorder's MIC terminal (fig . 2-3).
• If necessary, pass the connecting cable through the cable clamp.
Set the receiver's POWER switch to ON (fig. 2-4).
Set the microphone's POWER switch to ON (fig. 3-1).
• The receiver's communication indicator flashes in blu e.
• The microphone's communication indicator flashes in blue.
• Bluetooth wireless communication between the microphone
and the receiver will be established automatically. When wireless
communication is established, the communication indicators on
both units wil l stop flashing and stay constantly on.
• When the microphone's or the receiver's battery is getting low,
the BATT. (battery warning) indicator w ill flash in red . Rep lace the
battery as soon as possible.
Place the windscreen on the microphone (fig. 3-2).
• Place the windscreen so that the earphone jack can be easily
connected th rough the opening in the windscreen (fi g. 3-3).
Using the lapel clip, attach the microphone to the subject 's
clothing .
• If the microphone is not attached securely, it may rub against the
subject's clothes and rustling noises may be picked up. Make sure
to attach it securely.

Before shooting
• If your camcorder is equipped with a \) (headphones) terminal, check
that the microphone is functioning correctly by connecting to it one
the supplied earphones or a pair of headphones, speaking into the
microphone, and monitoring the sound that is picked up.
• Depending on the camcorder used, you may be able to display an
audio level indicator on your camcorder's screen. Use the audio level
indicator to check the audio recording levels.
• Depending on the camcorder used, you may be able to manually
adjust the audio recording level. Select [Mic.Level] from the
camcorder's FUNC. panel and set it to [M Manual].
• Depending on the camcorder used, you may be able to mix and
record audio from both the WM-V1 and the camcorder's built-in
microphone (Audio Mix function). Set [Audio Mix] to [On] and adjust
the audio mix balance.
Because audio from the WM-V1 is processed digitally, when the
WM-V1 's microphone is too close to the camcorder's built-in
microphone there may be a slight lag between the sound from each
microphone, creating an echo (reverberation) effect in the recorded
sound. In such case, increase the distance between the WM-V1's
microphone and the camcorder.
Checking sound from the microphone using the supplied
• You can check the sound picked up with the microphone by
connecting one of the supplied earphones to the microphone's
earphone jack. Adjust the volume as necessary with the VOLUME
+1- buttons. (The volume wi ll be reset to its default value when the
microphone unit is turned off.)
• You can connect both supplied earphones to the receiver and the
microphone units to allow transceiver communication.
• Because audio from the WM-V1 is processed digitally, there may be a
slight lag between the actual sound and the audio you hear from the
earphone, creating an echo effect. This is not a malfunction.
Bluetooth wireless communication
• Bluetooth wireless communication is set up to be established
automatically only between the microphone and receiver units of the
WM -V1. Bluetooth wireless communication with devices other than
the WM -V1 is not supported.
• If the microphone is too close to the camcorder, RF interference may
cause noise in the recorded sound. Keep the microphone at least 1 m
(3 ft.) away from the camcorder during use.
• Status of the communication indicator
Unit is turned ON
Wireless communication is established
Microphone unit is turned OFF
(receiver is still ON)

After using the WM-V1
1 Turn off the camcorder.
Turn off the microphone and receiver.
Disconnect the connecting cable from the camcorder's MIC
Remove the receiver from the camcorder.
Disconnect the connecting cable from the receiver.
• Clean the units by dusting them lightly with a soft, dry cloth. Do not
use thinner, benzene, alcohol, or other volatile cleaners or solvents.
• Keep the earphone jacks clean at all times. The microphone will not
work properly if the terminals are dirty.
• The windscreen cannot be washed. If it gets wet, pat it with a soft, dry
cloth and let it dry naturally.
• If you do not intend to use the WM-V1 for a long period of time,
remove the batteries from both the microphone and receiver units.
• Do not touch the windscreen , microphone or receiver while recording,
as this wi ll cause noise to be recorded.
• Using the microphone close to high-voltage equipment or to devices
that emit strong electromagnetic fields (high-voltage lines, electrical
towers, some cellular phones, etc.) may cause noise to be recorded .
• When carrying the camcorder w ith the receiver attached, be sure to
support the camera body. Never carry the camcorder by the receiver.
• Test the microphone by speaking into it. Do not tap the microphone or
blow into it.
• Do not drop or jolt the microphone or receiver, as this may damage it
or impair its performance. Handle the microphone and receiver with
• Do not disassemble or touch the interior parts of the microphone or
