External Microphone for NEX-7?
What external (stereo) microphone can be used on NEX-7? I would prefer something small, light and under $150.
What's more is that I will be using my D800e, with NEX-7 as backup. I took about 30% videos. I am considering the Nikon ME-1 external stereo microphone for D800e. Is there a way to adapt to the NEX-7? Most probably, I will need a hot shoe adapter. How about the "microphone communication protocol" with camera? Conversely, how about a microphone for NEX-7 to adapt for D800e?
Can video lovers out there please help? Much appreciated.
Found this Sony adapter "Adapt Alpha Shoe to Multi-Interface Shoe". Anyone uses it? Is this become hotshoe as that on NEX-6? This should provide more flexibility, and can allow the use of Canon/Nikon flash on NEX-7? Maybe some of the auto flash features will not function. But it should provide flash triggering, at least?
And with the 3.5mm of the socket of the NEX-7, will this enable the use of Nikon ME-1 microphone on NEX-7? To what degree will the ME-1 functions on the NEX-7 work? Technology is great. But technology enables and eases my usage is even better.
Like to hear from your experience, dear fellow forumers.
