I'm trying to understand how to get sound into this camera.
So far, I'm aware of:
- built-in mic
- Sony ECM-XYST1M - camera-mounted stereo mic with adjustable pickup pattern
- Sony ECM-W1M - wireless lavalier system with built-in mic which apparently also has a 1/8" jack for external mics
- Sony XLR-K1M - $800 2-channel XLR adaptor bundled with a shotgun mic
- independent external sound recording devices which need to be synced in post-production
From the dpreview review, it appears that there is no volume control, no way to turn off automatic gain control, and no headphone output.
Have I gotten all that right?
Is there anything else I should be aware of?
