Sound for Sony TRV9 -- best mic? : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

Planning to shoot documentary on Sony TRV9 and want to rent better mic(s) to plug into camera jack. Will be shooting in outdoor crowds as well as indoor interview situations. Any suggestions?

I intend to record sound in camera (12 bit option). If I use a mic plugged into the jack, will that turn off the built in camera mic? Is there some way to record input from multiple mics on separate channels in camera? (So that I can adjust balance of crowd noise vs. interviewee later?)

Thanks for your help!
