    External microphones that can be used with the EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D

    • Answer
    • You can use a commercially available external microphone that is equipped with a stereo mini plug whose size is 3.5 mm in diameter with the camera.


      NOTE

      • It is possible to use a microphone that supports plug-in power (which is supplied from a camera to the microphone) because the EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D is compatible with plug-in power.
      • It is possible to use a condenser microphone. However, it is not possible to use a condenser microphone that requires phantom power (which is supplied from external power equipment to the microphone).
      • It is not possible to use a dynamic microphone.
      • The impedance of the microphones that can be used with the camera is around 200 Ω to 2KΩ.
