The new, high sensitivity built-in microphone has 4 directionality modes to ensure you capture more of the sound you want and an audio equaliser for the perfect tone. A zoom mic option is available and, when used with an external mic, the 2 sources can be mixed in camera. Optional Canon 5.1 Surround and Wireless mics are also available.
