The built in mic is not all that great. There are no jacks for an external mic. Is there a workaround for this or am I stuck? I use the camcorder mostly for recording speeches given in a restaurant/breakfast environment. The Speaker is about 10-12 feet away and I also pick up background noises like knives and forks as people eat breakfast. I am new at all of this and hope there is a reasonable solution.
I am no expert, but one solution could be to use a digital voice recorder with an external mic attached. Then you would have to synchronise the audio and video in your editing software.
Hope this helps
