Your camcorder will accept just about any microphone with a 3.5mm stereo plug. Because of the wide variety of microphones, we don't have specific recommendation for a brand or model of microphone.
Microphones should meet the following specifications: 3.5 mm stereo minijack -57 dBV (with 600 Ohm microphone)/5 kilohms or more. Because this camcorder cannot provide "phantom" power for the microphone, an "active" microphone (requiring external power) must supply its own power.
I recommend manually adjusting your camcorder's audio recording level. You may see this information by clicking here.
