D5000 Audio Input
In short, has anyone tried adding an audio input connection to the D5000, or any other ways to get around the crappy internal mic (short of carrying an external recorder)?
Nikon omitted an audio input jack on the D5000, a jaw-dropping error in my opinion. In addition to picking up camera noises, in loud environments the internal (mono!) mic is badly overdriven and distorts. I've resorted to putting my finger over it to curb the distortion.
