any owners got the panasonic sd5 or sony sr 5, are u happy with yr purchase, i have downed my choice to one of the above, can get them the same price, just cant make my mind up for which one to go for.
My comment was about the Panasonic SD5; it doesn't have a mic input, so even though it's accessory shoe can physically hold a mic you can't feed it to the camcorder.
Yes the SR5 can use an AIS mic.
Thanks for the link to the VMC-K100, I thought those had been discontinued; that is useful for camcorders like the SR5. You'll also have to buy a bracket to mount the mic if you want it attached to the camcorder.
