I’m using a Sony FX-1 it also had the 1/8″ mini-jack you are talking about.
I bought a Beachtek Audio(model DXA-4) adapter (http://www.beachtek.com/prod.html) to be able to hook up XLR devices to my camera. I am able to use botha shotgun mic and a wireless mic together if I need or just one device.
Also some wireless mics (like the Sony UWPC1 I use) have the ability or change the cable from a XLR to a 1/8″ mini jack. The with the audio techs at the event your going to record at this is possiable.
