I personally had to learn

For audio, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING will be to hook your camera up to the board, whether its an XLR or if you can manage a 1/8". That is the best way. If you can’t, then you need a separate audio capture device, and will need to get a feed off of their audio board. Do not ever attempt to simply use a camera mic.
