The camcorder features 2-channel AAC audio recording and playback. You can record audio using the built-in microphone, the mini advanced shoe and optional DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone or the MIC terminal (commercially available microphones).
When recording outdoors in the open, the built-in microphone may record loud audible wind noise. In such cases, using an external microphone with a foam cover or wind screen is recommended.
The audio signal will be output along with the video signal from the HDMI OUT terminal. You can record this audio signal on an external recorder.

Using the DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone

To use a commercially available plug-in power microphone, select MENU -> [ Audio Setup ] and set [MIC Power] to [ On].
