Anybody Using Kp for Video? Microphone Question

I know that Pentax pays lip service to video features. It is no competitor to Panasonic GH series cameras that excel at video.

However, a week and a half back I had to use my Kp for video recording. This was a backup to the main video recording device. I used an external microphone https://www.bestbuy.com/site/saramonic-on-camera-mini-shotgun-mic-for-dslr-mirrorless-video-smartphones-tablets-vmic-mini/6357068.p?skuId=6357068.

The video quality was surprisingly good, but the audio was poor. I have now tried two other external microphones with pretty much the same results. Audio is disappointing. If there are fellow Kp users who have hooked up an external microphone, please comment on your experience.

Thanks.
