You recharge the battery by installing it into the camera and plugging one end of the USB cable into the camera and the other into the computer. I was also able to use the USB charger from my cell phone, which plugs into the wall, to charge the camera battery.

There is not view finder on the camera, only menus for setting it up and changing modes (camera to video camera, ect). There is, however, an option LCD screen that can be purchased separately.

Unfortunately it does not have any zooming capability. Action cameras lean more on capturing the point of view of the person currently in action (the one biking, surfing, skating, snowboarding etc), hence the term action camera. It is more focused on being compact and lightweight yet can withstand rugged conditions, perfect for capturing your adventures on the mountain, in the water, and anywhere else life may take you as the action happens, from your own point of view.

But we do have Sony Handycams available here at Walmart, that may suit your needs and has zoom features. I have pasted a link below so you may want to check it out. Models HDRCX220 and HDRCX230 are in close range with the action cam's price and have pretty good zoom features already. There are others too, so feel free to check it out. Hope this helped!

answer 1
Yes this camera does have an external mic input. It is located on the bottom of the camera under a pop open door. This is also where the HDMI/USB I/O's are located.

Sony engineers must have been sleeping when they designed this, as all inputs/outputs are useless once the camera is placed inside of the plastic case that makes this waterproof. And, they are also not accessible while sitting on a tripod because the only tripod mount is located on the waterproof case which must be on in order to mount the camera on a tripod. Even with Sony's flip out video screen option, they never made access holes for the mini-mic input. Again, they must have been sleeping.

Perhaps some good old fashioned American ingenuity can / could solve this, but that is up to the purchaser to develop and make at this time.
