External Audio for Samsung NX300?

Hi Everyone!

We bought this camera a few years ago, never really intending to use it for anything other than noncommercial pictures. Now I am kicking myself for not buying a traditional DSLR, but anyways, we started a vlog channel on YouTube and now I am looking into external audio options.

I understand Samsug at one time made an external mic, but I can't find it for sale anywhere.

I see that GoPros are compatible with mics that plug into the micro USB jack, do you think that would work for this camera as well? I doubt it, but I can't find anything about it online. I am just kind of reaching at this point because I don't want to buy anything else at the moment!

Thank you for any and all help!

The USB mics don't work, it's not enabled on a firmware level.

Your only option (and really the best option anyway) is to use an external recorder with a shotgun/lapel plugged into it.

What editing software are you using?  Most of the big names (Premiere/FCPX etc...) offer effortless audio syncing with or without a clap.

You could record separately with any digital recorder, then sync with the video footage when editing.
