I like my Camrecorder – a Sony HDR-CX 505 VE. But what I do NOT like is that stupid non-standard interface shoe on that camera – which makes it pretty impossible to use a better microphone for that camera ! Well, one could buy a microphone from Sony – but after reading all those tests I have to believe, that all those Sony microphones are simply rubbish !!!
Now I’ve bought an active shoe adapter – but all I got from that adapter is white noise !
