What does a microphone input

Post by suhanee »

What does a microphone input for an ordinary microphone look like? I have a Canon ZR90 and I want to plug-in a microphone to the camera but I do not know what a microphone port on a camera looks like. Can somebody tell me?

Well, it depends really. You have two different sizes of microphone port. I would guess however that it would be a really small port (the other one is a large port). It would look like a headphone jack.

Camcorders do not always have microphone jacks. If it does, sometimes the mic jack is underneath of a rubber or plastic cover. Check your owner's manual. If it has a mic jack, the manual should tell you where to find it.
