Good afternoon. I have a Sony DCR-PC8. What I need are recommendations for an external mic which can be mounted on top of the camera using the shoe, and plugged into the camcorder via the MIC IN jack port. Hope this makes sense? (I'm a bit of novice to all of this as you might be able to tell!!). I want a general multi-purpose mic, basically to boost and improve the sound quality. Any recommendations would be gratefully received!
