This issue could be solved via firmware or with some kind of external mic with the ability to control audio levels in a simple manner.

If the mic is phyiscally overloaded, it may not be something that can be fixed in firmware.

The problem with mics is the proprietary Sony system. You can only use Sony.

And flashes and.... Well, other cameras also use proprietary ports for some things, but Sony seems particularly bad about this.  I'm surprised a third-party can't make a mic adapter then you can use an external mic of your choice at least.

Some of the portable sound recorders are inexpensive and very compact.  I think that's probably the way to go (as I mentioned a year ago!  Wow, old thread!).
