Actually the shotgun mic and mic bracket shown in advertisements for the DSR PD100A does not come shipped with the camera. What does come with it is a single XLR mic adapter that attaches to the PD100A's "smart" hot shoe. You will need to order the optional mic, XLR cable, and mount if you want it. Reviews I have read seem favorable for the mic as well. The camera should come shipped with a .7X wide angle lens and hood as well as a remote. This according to Sony's own web site. good luck- Ben
