    Default Will a converter work if I don't have an external mic jack? URGENT!

    Hi guys,

    Quick intro: I'm Ammaar from Birmingham!

    I had an issue which I need help with.

    Basically, when I started making videos I bought a Canon SX710 HS, when I realised I needed an external mic I also realised there isn't an audio port on my camera.

    I've been looking online and the solution I found was this, a mini HDMI to audio jack adapter. HOWEVER, I've been reading that if the camera itself doesn't have an audio jack, then it probably won't support an external mic (even with a converter). I need to know if this is true or not because I really need to get a mic?

    In case you wanted to know, the Mic is the RODE VideoMic Microphone!

    Thanks in advance folks

    The hdmi port on the camera is most likely for output not for input

    if you want to use an external mic you need an audio capture device - look at zoom devices

    Are there any links you can give me or anything to specifically recommend?

    Start with the Zoom H2. There are many others, Tascam being another common brand.
