Hi Nathan,
These cameras, as you know, have their own internal microphones fitted. Actually with regards to the mic plugged into the mic input you are quite correct. It is for placing a microphone on a stand in an ideal place or getting someone to hold it close to the subject. These camcorders are not designed to mount camera microphones.
