Note: This is a question camera, the ability of the camera in question, and help into deciding whether I need a new camera. This isn't a question about just "Video".

Is there any way at all to use a microphone with Canon SX720 HS? I sometimes make review videos or record videos of family/friend gatherings, and I would love to have the ability to use an external mic with this camera. Anything?

No - while this is a well featured point and shoot, it is not designed to accept external accessories other than those detailed on page 146 in the manual
