I have one of the new Sony 100 gig SR8 camcorders.
I would like to do interviews, on the street type. Would like to use a handheld mic and I’m not concerned about a cable.
The mic outlet on my Sony states "Mic Plug in Power" and there is an "Active Interface Shoe" on top. Would one of these give better sound or is it just the difference between cordless and not?
I’m a novice and have no idea what would be acceptable. My budget is maximum $400 or so but would be happy for half that. It must be acceptable in some windy conditions or cars in the background. The Plug in Power perplexes me. I read a topic on this forum which helped. One individual suggested a RE50V, apparently a popular mic under 2 hundred dollars. Will this work with my Sony?
What would you suggest and where would I get a reasonable priced mic.
Thanks so much for your opinions and suggestions.
I look forward to reading many of your most excellent posts.

I didn’t see anything that suggests this mic supports my "powered mic" outlet.
Also, the cord is only 5 feet and I don’t know if an extension is available and how it would affect the mic.
Are you familiar with the RE50/B mic that seems to have good reviews?
