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.
Mics: nbobs/480+ck61/62/63; C568EB; MKE2
Recorders: MP6; A10

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.

mine works great too.
Took a couple times to zero in the setting but with the recording as back up, dubbing was pretty easy

Do you think it is a better idea to invest in a good microphone first than in a good camera or better the other way around?

While you are getting started, would it be more practical for you to have good video with adequate audio or vice versa?
Personally I wind up ignoring video, or watching it out of the corner of my eye while I do something else... Like right now, I've got this week's Dinner And A Movie playing...
But good audio lasts forever.
If the video looks great and sounds fair, I'll tune out even faster.

You can have stellar video but if it has crap sound people wont watch. However you can have average video with stellar sound people will watch!

That wouldn't be an extremely unusual combo, as the MK41 is super popular in the film world, I'm sure someone somewhere has paired this with a video camera in a pinch as a scratch mic.

Just remember though, that one of the worst places you can mount a mic is on the camera itself!

As you want to get the mic in close, and on axis.

That does not seem obvious. What's the issue, mechanical noise from the lens focusing?

This.  Why complicate it?  Just get plurrel eyes and run your rig and camera with shitty audio.  Replace and save.  :headphones:

personally could never get plural eyes to work but that was back in fcp6 days
It was a complete  waste of time and money.
That said, although I almost always go line out > mic in live it does make sense to have them separate
I run two cams so that’s my backup
