Your camera needs a mic input and your recorder needs a stereo output. Otherwise you'll have to do it in post.

I have a Vixia R700 and a Lumix ZS100. The Vixia has a mic in, the Lumix doesnt.

Thank you for your help

I´m looking for any decent Video camera with mic in and not too much expensive.

I will tape in Europe

Just a word of caution about this ~~

If something goes wrong with the audio recording aspect of this (loose mic, etc.) -- you've got nothing for audio.  However, if you record the audio separately -- you'll have two recordings (the camera audio in the video file and the separate audio file).  Also note - a lot of cameras don't have an option to record in LPCM.

The Sony cx 550v has a mic input.

This is a 1920 x 1080 flash based camera.

i used to connect sound professional mics with attenuator cable to camera, camcorder. Most cameras has 3.5 input jack, but not all has manual settings for sound like manual gain control. I currently use FUJi X-T3 (connecting mics trough olympus ls-100 out conection) but preams in camera not so good. I think Canon has better preams, because its more for videography.

def would use an attenuator unless there is another way to adjust the signal coming in

I got a tascam dr60d to record the audio and then send it into my videocamera. Works great. There was one time that the connection to the camera didn't complete, so that copy in the dr60d came in very handy. It's easy enough to align in post, i am usually making 2 or 3 different audio recordings for every show, and a sbd if possible into the dr60d.
