I have a Sony DCR TRV320 that I love and I am looking for an better mic for it. I want one that works with the existing shoe if possible. It does have a mic jack. I have read some horrible reviews regarding the ECM-MSD1 mic that Sony offers. Any suggestions?
Well they did actually give an example of what they were looking for with the ECM-MSD1. I have used one and they do suck in my opinion. What you are looking for seems to be a stereo shotgun mic. There are several good ones out there. The only one I have used personally since I do not have one myself yet is the Azden SMX-10 Shotgun Microphone. I liked this one for two reasons. The price is around $50 and it really did a good job for me the one and only time I used it. I am not 100% sure it is a stereo mic like the Sony.
