I have a Sony HDR-CX100 video camera that I would like to connect an external mic to (3.5mm plug), but the camera has no dedicated mic input.
However, it as an "A/V R" plug:
Before you say "it's not possible", I also have a Sony Sports pack SPK-CXA that plugs into that port which includes it's own microphones (in addition to remote controls). So technically it should be possible to input audio through that port.
So my question is has anyone seen a cable / dongle / adapter that would allow me to go from that A/V R plug on the camera to a simple 3.5mm mic port? Or would anyone have an idea on the pinouts to build one?
I could buy a new camera, but this one does everything I need otherwise, and seems a shame when a "simple" adapter should suffice.
