What sort of Microphone??

Does anyone know which Microphone can be used on my OMD-EM1??

Most I have seen come with a 3.5mm jack plug which won't fit,

Peter

Well, the E-M1 definitely has a 3.5mm socket...

Cheers

Hi Peter
You really can't go wrong with a Rode video mic. I have not used on an EM1 as I do not have one, but its a great mic and very good sonic quality. You can get cheaper, but I wouldn't.

I am using a Rode stereo videoMic Pro for heavy Metal bands.
Without a sound out on the camera it is difficult to set up but works well a a room mic.
I use an Olympus M31 shotgun mic on the panny G6 but have yet to move that to the EM-1
