    • Best answerHi, the built-in USB cable stowed in the hand strap is very convenient for extra-quick charging and connection to a PC. You can use the supplied software the PlayMemories Home to burn your videos easily to a disc. For more information regarding this software, please visit this site: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/55214/p/36919%2C37505%2C37553%2C95219/c/65%2C66/kw/What%20is%20playmemories%20Home.

    • Best answerNo, it does NOT have an external microphone jack. In the spec tab of this products listing it says it does , but that is wrong. I am returning my camera for this reason. I contacted customer service,and we together called Sony to verify, and they did infact let me and the Best Buy customer service rep know that it DOES NOT have the input. They should be updating the listing soon. but if you need to use this camera for more than recording your kids birthday parties and need audio of a standard higher than the HACK level video, you will need a Field Audio Recording setup that will have to be added in post production editing. Although this camera can achieve a High Definition video performance with a good lighting setup, it's audio capabilities are EXTREMELY limited and this camera should only be used on a personal level not professional or even someone tying to emulate a professional. Please Please please take that into account before buying !!
