    Looks like a good deal for price. Only thing the 5N is missing for me is an external mic in connector. I plan to use the camera 50/50 for stills and video and would love to have mic in. Is anyone using a small digital audio recorder and syncing with video in post? Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

    Look at some of the Zoom products, most notable would the Zoom H1
    31xLHs99lcL._SL500_AA300_.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'll take a look at their products. I've been shooting and editing video for years both professionally and as a hobby. Plan to sell my Sony TRV-900 three chip "SD" digital camcorder and shoot video and still with the same camera. Haven't made my purchase yet but soon! Most of my video will be will natural sound but occasionally I need the subject to have good clear audio....for instance, in an interview. I'll be watching this site for tips and suggestions using the NEX system. Thanks again, bow
