Best Mics for Sony RX100 VII

As you already noted, the RX100 VII is fitted with a 24-20mm f/2.8-4.5 lens and has a 20MP 1-inch camera. It can fire 4K videos at up to 30 fps, as well as up to 120 fps for 1080p videos. In upgraded 1080p, even quicker framerates are supported, but the consistency of the video is not very good.

Although we will not use this camera for serious videography, in some cases it can produce pretty decent results. For example, for YouTube videos or vlogs, it’s an excellent option, particularly when you think it comes with a flip-up screen so you can easily see yourself when filming. Having said that, let’s take a look at the best Sony RX100 VII microphones.
