    Nikon Coolpix A External Microphone

    Anyone using a Coolpix A with an external microphone? Similar to the SB-700 not having a PC port for flash sync, I have no idea why nikon left out a 3.5mm jack for a mic input - perhaps to keep the package small?


    Anyway - My thought is to buy a mini usb > 3.5mm female jack to try out. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N0DTIFM

    Before I spend any money on this, has anyone successfully used an external mic with a Coolpix A?




    Thanks - Joe

    I just found out the Fuji MIC-ST1 microphone kit includes a 2.5mm and 3.5mm to mini USB adapter to work with some of their Fujiulm cameras.... perhaps this adapter is just what I need...

    Did the Fuji kit for connecting an external mic to the Coolpix A work for or did you find another solution?
