Unhappy Samsung Galaxy Camera External wireless microphone

Hello everyone.
I need some help.
I have a Galaxy Camera I use to record press conferences.
Sometimes I can not be near to the speaker and the audio is low.

I have a very limited budget and can not buy an external microphone professional.
I tried to use Btmono and a bluetooth headset, but the camera app only uses the microphone of the machine. If I install a voice recorder, still works perfectly coupled Btmono and bluetooth headset.

I have seen that there are transmitters and receivers bluetooth with 3.5mm attack, but I do not know if it will work; in case I have no idea how I could connect everything.

Do you have suggestions?

Thank you all for any suggestions

You can just use an expensive RF mic system like this:

To connect it to your Galaxy Camera, you'll need a 6.5mm to 3.5mm adapter:

And then you'll also need this adapter since the mic port on the Galaxy Camera is a combo headphone/mic port:

Clip the mic and transmitter somewhere close to the speaker (podium?) and plug the receiver with all the adapters into your Galaxy Camera. Should work pretty well for under $50.

I also use an inexpensive knock-off "shotgun" mic which provides a very directional mic function, even in a crowd. You would need the km iphone mic adapter above to use this mic on your Galaxy Camera as well.

Hope this helps -- good luck.

Thanks internetpilot for your replay.

I had already purchased:
http://www.amazon.com/Pyle-Pro-PDWM9...ess+microphone
and
http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-3-5m..._bxgy_MI_img_z

But not this
http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-mic.htm

The result was that virtually did not work; so now I'll try to do that too and then purchase'll let you know if it all works.
Have you uploaded a video on youtube using these components?

Thanks

I have not uploaded any videos from my Camera 2 yet because I literally just bought it the other day. However, after seeing your question and knowing that I would want to use my wired lapel mic as well as my shotgun mic the Camera 2 for my son's YouTube videos, I bought the KVConnection iPhone mic adapter, received it, and tested it with my shotgun mic and it works perfect. If you haven't ordered it yet, I chose the one with the right-angle plug rather than the straight plug and I'm glad that I did.
