Thanks for the pic. I will be buying this mic, solely to break it open and access the R/L audio input wires, so I can create a generic Line Input feature for my new HDR-HC3 High Def camcorder. It appears this cam does not have a standard (alternate) audio input (line-in jack). ANy other options / ideas welcomed..... Bob

Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: I have the handycam dvd 403 camera. What a great is the best picture I've seen on any handycam. That's the good news. The bad news is that there is no mic input. Sony, why are you so can't even sell the mic's you make to people who have the 403. Here's a solution, though. . . .
