I have decided to buy an external portable digital recorder for my audio recording. It adds a few steps when editing the video and is extra equipment to carry, but it's really the only way to get really good audio.

I totally agree, I have the external mic and have been underwhelmed by its fidelity. It has 3 major advantages over internal mic though:

cuts out mechanical noise from zooming the lens

reduces wind noise outdoors

most importantly, gives directional control ( I had started to detest the sound of my own nasal breathing on recordings)

However I fully intend to get a zoom H1, which I wish I had got instead.

Does anyone know how easy it is to sync an external sound track in something like sony vegas? ( my daughter has joined a band!)
