I'm a newbie here so please bear with me. I just purchased a Sony HDR-CX260V video cam. My question is this. Unfortunately there is no active interface shoe to connect an external microphone to. There is a place on the side of the unit to plug in a cord for an external microphone, but still, there is no place to mount one. My main goal is to film hunts so am I going to be happy by purchasing a remote microphone, and second what model should I buy? I can see the advantages to using a remote mic, I just wondering if it would work well for what I'm doing. Thanks ahead of time for any feedback.
