Microphone Terminal with Manual Audio Level Control
The VIXIA HF21 allows you to enhance the quality of your audio by using the Canon optional accessory DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone (which attaches to the Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe) to capture better sound, and headphones to monitor the audio as you hear it. You can also attach an external microphone through the 3.5mm microphone terminal. Manual control of audio levels also lets you set the exact balance you need for the situation. Your videos will sound as good as they look.
