There is an external mic input on the Replay, fellow forum member sgtmarkins is using the Replay. It is my understanding Replay does not yet have a mic for sale on their website, but the Sarge is obviously using one. Hopefully he will see this thread and chime in.kryten said:....... I started looking for another camera and found one that seemed promising, the Replay XD1080. The only problem is again it has no external mic. They keep saying its coming soon but its been quite a while. I don't get why they promise things they never deliver. I personally wont buy another camera because it has a feature that I want this is "coming soon".
