You can hook any mic up to your camera. All you need to know is what connection is on the mic, what connection is on your camera, and whether or not you need an adapter to match the mic connection to your camcorders connection.
In a nutshell, pro mics use XLR connections. If you have XLR inputs on your camera then all you need is a male to female XLR cable at whatever length suits your needs. If you camcorder doesn’t have XLR inputs, it most likely has 1/8 inch. So you’ll need an adapter that connects the male end of the XLR cable to the female 1/8 inch input of your camcorder. Understand?
