    CJ do you have mic for your camera for shooting YouTube videos? Thinking I will make a few over the winter, but not sure if I need a mic.

    Yes, but I've had trouble getting good audio from it. I have a lapel mic that I use with an Olympus digital audio recorder. The first time I tried it I had it plugged into the wrong port and the second time it picked up a ton of rustling from my shirt that made the audio unusable. I'd probably recommend a better on-camera mic based on my experience. This one is super popular with vloggers. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015R0IQGW/?tag=homthelou-20

    OK, that Rode is pretty much the standard then.
