Sony HVR-V1U and lavalier mic

I need some advice. This HDV camera (Sony HVR-V1U) comes with an external shotgun mic via an XLR connection. I want to conduct some interviews but using a lavalier mic. My lavalier mic comes with a mini jack (iPod headphone size) and there are no mini jacks in the camera.
I was told that i would need a 3 -4 channel mixer (FOR EXAMPLE: Behringer DX626 3-Channel DJ Mixer). The lavalier mic will then plug INTO this mixer and OUT of the mixer an XLR connection to the camera,
1.) Do you happen to know any other way?
2.) What about audio in remote settings where there's no AC access?
Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
