" I am thinking of getting a Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer that another person recommended for this issue. " I took a quick peek at the Behringer mixer you propose and I didn't see that it had any " input pading ) feature. You might find that " something " might still overload your camera's audio, even with an external mixer. Does you camera have the ability to switch between mic level input and line level input ( which is usually about 50 db louder than mic level )? If not, then a relatively inexpensive in-line " pad " ( or attenuator= same thing ) will take care of your problem. If you still want an audio mixer, I think I'd be looking at something a bit better quality than the Behringer stuff.
