Ext mic for Everio

Anonymous (not verified)

I'd like to experiment with an ext mic for my GZ-MS100U...I understand that it may be possible to drive an audio in signal through the A/V jack.....anyone try this? I think the built-in is a condenser mic, so would a small preamp be needed with an external? I tried opening the unit up to add a jack but there's just no room in this tightly packed cam...

I've seen some tutorials on addingmic jacksfor othercamcorders (google search). I don't recall exactly where off hand but they were done on some tight spaces. You coulod try someof the DIY forms.The tutorials decribed the wiring changes necessary. Some level of handyman skill is essential. If that is not an option, some other poster with this unit might be able to help with the A/V jack info or you could try JVC's support. Another direction that you might go touse an external audio recorder with a mic and join the audio and video in your NLE, although you were probably trying to avoid this.
