Hi,

It records stereo sound into the file uncompressed so the quality is good. It has dual stereo mic's in the front however there is a mini jack on the side for audio input. Its compatible with consumer video camera microphones, however it does not have AGC so you don't get those annoying audio level changes when there is science vs loud noises. You can plug in pro gear adapters into that if you are rigging the camera up.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Grant

Hi Grant: Thank you very much for those "small" details. I hadn't seen this info confirmed elsewhere. Details like this are much appreciated. Cheers!
