SR-AX100 in practice
As an example you can use the SR-AX100 in the following way: you connect a shotgun microphone on the stereo input port. You can place him on the hotshoe on top of the SR-AX100. On both the mono input ports you can connect a lavalier microphone. This can also be wireless microphones, in that case you can place the receivers on the left and right hotshoe of the SR-AX100. The stereo-mono button lets you switch between the sound of the shotgun microphone and both lavalier microphones. Because the sound of both mono channels is send on a separate track to the camera, you can edit them separately in the editing software.
