    please help! Olympus one 8 doesn’t have a jack so I researched ways to add an external microphone anyways - bought a microphone a mini hdmi plug a male part hdmi that has a head jack but in the tuturial video I found on YouTube it says to change to dual recording so your screen doesn’t go black (my screen is currently black) and bc he was using a different camera I don’t know how to change that setting on Olympus even though I’ve looked and researched. Here’s is the vid I watched for reference skip to minute 3:35 to get to the point

    There is no way to use an external mic with an E-PL8. You can use an external recorder (or your phone) and combine them in your video if you really need a mic.

    let me rephrase the question does Olympus pen 8 have dual recording and if it does how do I turn dual recording on?
