video camera with audio input
« on: October 30, 2018, 07:38:19 pm »

I am trying to find a video camera that would accept a stereo audio input from a sound console, something that would be able to record both audio and video together.  Hopefully in the under $300 range.  Does any such thing exist?

Zoom Q4n? You'll have to adapt the signal to a stereo 1/8" input and whatever sensitivity the audio input has.

Any other requirements? Bigger, more expensive cameras have XLR inputs switchable to line level sensitivity, and they have audio level controls.

Look at camcorders with an external 1/8th audio in jack. For under $300 look at Canon refurbished for something like their R700 model.

The Zoom is nice and likely does a better audio recording but has a fixed lens with only digital zoom, a camcorder will give you real optical zoom capabilities.
