Re: I didn't know NEX-6 doesn't have mic input, can it use SONY NEX boom mic?

Oh god ...WHY built such a thing?

Use an extern solution (like ZOOM, TASCAM, ..) or buy a NEX7

A 3.5mm connection gives 10x lower quality than external recording!

Easy one -- for convenience.  And while lower quality than external recording, much better quality than the built-in mics would give.  I bet many people will take that tradeoff of "only" middle ground quality for the convenience of mixed-in-camera rather than the best possible quality.
