Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder
For microphones with a 3.5 mm miniplug you can use a plug-in at the front of the camera. There is a little plastic cover over the hole under the word "MIC". I would call this an emergency solution because for most recording purposes you would want a microphone with XLR connectors.
This camcorder comes with an external shotgun condenser mic and XLR adaptor. If you have the operating instructions that come with the camera, you can turn to page 29 where there is a description of how to install the supplied external microphone.
When you slip the hot shoe plug of the XLR adaptor into the intelligent accessory shoe, the internal microphone is by-passed. In case you do not have the operating instructions you can download them from the Sony manual site.
Put briefly, Attach the XLR adaptor to the accessory shoe on the top front of the camcorder and tighten the screw of the adaptor. Connect the hot shoe plug of the SLR adaptor to the intelligent accessory shoe of the camcorder, located behind the adaptor screw. When you push the hot shoe plug into place you should hear a click. Sometimes you have to use a little strength to get it correctly seated.
I hope this helps.
