Okay so I feel like I made a mistake purchasing this camera. I'm now realising that this hot shoe is not a standard hot shoe. So, i'm trying to order a microphone but I no longer understand what I need to order.
Can someone please help me with this. Do I need to order a special microphone? I can't seem to order the hot shoe adapter because they are sold out everywhere.
This camera seems like a walled garden when it comes to attachments and lenses... I really think I made a mistake here.
The camera manual says that a Canon DM-E1D is compatible with your camera. https://www.usa.canon.com/shop/p/stereo-microphone-dm-e1d?color=Black&type=New
Most external microphones with a 3.5 mm plug can also be used according to the manual.
Your camera manual can be found here:
You should probably spend some time reading the manual and learn about your new camera. Search in the manual for "external microphone".
