I don't know what they sell for, but mine wasn't terribly expensive on eBay. It fits in the light 'socket' on the camera. There are all kinds in many price ranges.
Can anyone reccommend a good shoe mounted microphone for a camcorder, I have no experiance with this type of mic, but it must be better than the mic built in to the camcorder. I do videoing for plays and shows etc
which usally means being a faire distance from the stage, radio mics would be ideal, but beyond my budget.Any suggetions ?.
