    Does anyone know the pinout of the Panasonic G2's external microphone socket? It's a 2.5mm jack socket, and I presume it's 4-pole, since it's also the remote release connection. I have a couple of microphones that I'd like to connect up via an adaptor cable.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for posting that, it's exactly the sort of info I need! The two unused connections on the jack plug must the the stereo microphone connections. The diagram also reveals which connection is ground. I'll get a 4-pole 2.5mm jack plug and try it.
