I have a Sony FX-1 and a Beachtek DXA-4 XLR adapter and a Rode mic. I like the beachtek adapter and it gives me more options for recording audio.
I’m pleased with the Rode mic as well. This mic can pick up some sounds you are not expecting to hear!
As far as on camera lighting, I have the Bescor MX-601 6 VDC Light. It is 20 or 40 Watt, diffusion, barn doors and shoe mount…I’m okay with it but I really want something better and brighter and maybe even in LED to save/extend battery life.
The good thing about the Bescor is you can go to Academy and get the same 6vdc battery for 10 buck. You just need to solider a RCA jack to the terminals; saves about 40-50 bucks.
