Hello Forum,
I'm not sure I'm in the right group so please excuse and redirect me if so.

I've searched for hours (without success) for an article I saw a few years back with instructions on how to convert the Component plug on the side of my camera for use with an external mic.

There are several videos on removing the original mic to make it remote but this is NOT what I'm looking for.

If memory is correct then when plugging up the external mic the internal mic will be disconnected. And since I'm not interested in using the Component aspect of the camera I'm not loosing anything. Hope you can help!

Thanks in advance.
