When using separate mic(s) with an audio adapter, you have benefits like mixing possibilities, level adjustment and lower noise and better overall sound quality.

With some adapters you can also use mics with an XLR connector and provide these with phantom power (necessary for higher grade condenser mics). Some adapters are made to use with a smartphone, some with a DSLR, and some with both.

When you want to use an on-camera mounted shotgun mic and have the possibility to use one or two lavalier mics, this Boya adapter is exactly what you need. See the specs for more info.

When you want to use mics with XLR connectors and/or phantom power, this Saramonic is the way to go. You can even connect your guitar with a ¼” connector. When you want to have even more control you could opt for this Saramonic SR-PAX2, which can be mounted under your DSLR and has the benefit of a display.

Another option is to record the sound separately on an external recorder. This however will make it more difficult when you work alone. Separately recorded sound can be synced later in editing. There are easy ways to do this with software.
