Using an External Microphone

When recording in very quiet surroundings, the built-in microphone 
may pick up the sound of the camcorder's internal machinery. In such 
case, we recommend using an external microphone.

Using the DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone

Attach the optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone to the 
mini advanced shoe.
Refer to Using the Mini Advanced Shoe (

 appears. For details about using the microphone, refer to the 

instruction manual of the DM-100.

Using other microphones

You can also use commercially avail-
able microphones. Connect the exter-
nal microphone to the MIC terminal. 
Use commercially available condenser 
microphones with their own power 
supply. You can connect almost any 
stereo microphone with a 

∅ 3.5 mm 

plug but audio recording levels may vary.

NOTES

• When an external microphone is connected to the camcorder,

manually (
