I purchased a shotgun mic intended for camcorders and I own two JVC camcorders, bought at a cheap price on eBay, neither of which have an input socket for a mic to plug in.
Now I am considering opening (arggh!) either the D370U or the DVL305 to either fit a socket in the body or drill a hole in the side for two lead wires. I also have a Tascam Digital Recorder so this rework is not necessary, but I am considering it.
Does anyone have experience of doing such work on a camcorder, or am I going to find a nightmare when I eventually open the guts.
