The camera doesn't have any microphone ports [the only ports are for USB, AV (out), Component (out), and HDMI (out)], but does anyone know if there's a way to reprogram the camcorder to accept some form of sound device through another port?

I know that this is a hail-mary type of question, but maybe someone found a jailbreak.

Yes, there is a great field recorder that I used when I was first starting.

It is called the "zoom H1" zoom makes very good products and this field recorder, like most, has a pretty good quality mic on it already. That would prevent the need to get another mic if you are on a budget.

here is a link: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&O=&Q=&ap=y&c3api=1876%2C%7Bcreative%7D%2C%7Bkeyword%7D&gclid=CjwKEAjw3pTJBRChgZ3e7s_YhAkSJAASG9Vrh6XxuYI25dZwO34oagJg_M4UCkEFZRRjSuluzxXoLRoCTgLw_wcB&is=REG&m=Y&sku=1260111

I do not know what your budget is but that is the cheapest one and it is simple to use and light weight.

If you have a higher budget and some experience the tascam dr-40 (similar to the H1) or the higher quality tascam dr-70d (NOT light weight) might be a better choice.

here are the links to those:

I would also make sure that these will work with your choice of a microphone. If you have questions about the mic compatibility I can help you with that also.

considering that those ports are outputs it would be close to impossible.

I know this wasn't your question but consider getting a field recorder it will rid you of the need for a port on your camera.

Hope his Helped!

[In response to Turbo_]

Thank you for the reply. That's what I had assumed but you never know until you ask.


Are you aware of any entry-level audio recorders that are lightweight and user-friendly?
