Hi Webgeek. Fantastic selection of pictures. I have pre-ordered the NEX-6 & 16-50 pancake lens without checking if an external mike can be fitted. Been through this thread to end and cannot find any mention of this subject. Do you know if an external mike can be fitted and if so which type/model and is an adapter required.  I am basically looking for a solution costing not more than around US$ 150.

There is no input jack for the microphone. Whereas, there is one in the NEX-7. That is one of the difference.

I'm sure someone will be making an inexpensive adapter in a little while. Not having a external mike adapter built in is not going to fly with many shooters.


I've read that the new hotshoe will support external mic (and lots of other things). It's a better and more widely connectable hotshoe than the 7.
