Which microphone for a JVC GR DV4000?

  1. I have a JVC GR DV4000 and I want to get an external mic.

    The original MZ-V5 or MZ-V3 are probably the best choice, but they are a
    bit hard to come by and also perhaps a bit over my budget, so I was
    wondering if it is possible to get a generic microphone that will fit in
    the shoe - and if so, which is the best buy?

    Well you don't need a shoe if yours isn't standard fit (I don't know
    your camera so I have no idea), you could get a bracket from someone
    like Keene.

    As for the mic, the RODE Videomic seems favourite on various forums,
    mono, or there is a stereo version.
