    I shoot video on my LX5 very occasionally. Recently, I've been having problems with the audio sensitivity - basically, it's recording sound at too low a level. I'm getting a very loud background hiss with very faint audio on playback.

    I've tried a few thing while trying to fix the problem :
    - my finger isn't blocking the microphone
    - I've played with the "wind cut" and "conversion" settings
    - the microphone slots look clear of debris
    - the zoom lever controls audio playback level correctly
    - I've searched the manual (RTFM'd it...................)

    Is there any control over the recording level or is it a defect?

    Unfortunately I didn't ever solve the problem. I now use a different camera instead!
