has a real mic-in port, either... it uses the proprietary Sony "active interface" - nothing fit in it but Sony mics built for that interface... then you cannot use those mics on any other camera.
The ZR800 has a mic-in jack.
Please help me to choose between
Sony DSC - HC96 OR canon ZR850
the only i really bother canon is they dont have mic in port..
more over i would like to buy panasonic since many suggest..but the problem is we dont have service center here..that's why i want to choose sony or canon..but disappointed with canon no mic in but they are really cheaper..but sony seems very costly but i think it has all the features..
which one to go ?
