    Hello all,

    I've got a Playsport ZX5 and wanted to know two things as I have not been able to find this information online.

    1) Can I connect a microphone to my ZX5 to get better sound? If yes, is there anything special I need to look for in a mic to function properly with my camera?

    2) Is there any way to connect the ZX5 to my laptop so that I can see the viewfinder screen on my laptop monitor? I have access to both mac and pc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Matt

  2. Only if you're good with a drill and a soldering iron and can read schematics.

  4. You're welcome. You bought the wrong camera if that's what you're trying to do.

  6. Actually, have you tried the HDMI out directly into a tv? If you can get a live picture that way while recording, an HDMI capture card may allow you to view it on your computer -- probably with a slight delay.
