Camera's with external mic input
Media department are after a camera or two, they would like to be able to use tie-clip mics to get some good quality dialogue when filming from a distance and/or in the wind etc.
Basically I would imagine they would go for any spec if they could be used with an external mic, I'm aware this is a 'rare' feature these days but its beyond difficult to filter out cameras based on this attribute.
Anyone know of a model that has this facility that is still 'available'? Seems like the product cycle on these things seems like 6 months!
By the way the budget is around £300 (much less than a 'professional' camera!)
