Mic input with manual audio controls
A microphone input connection lets you attach an external microphone to your camcorder. Since there are a wide range of different microphones available, an input connection lets you choose the best way to capture sounds, according to the type of movie you’re making.
With manual audio controls, you also gain more precise control over sound levels during recording. For instance, cut down background interference when shooting an interview; alternatively, boost ambient noise to convey the atmosphere of a scene.
