I am thinking about a project for my camera. A problem that often occurs with cameras and I haven't found a solution yet is, that there is an external microphone input but no audio output to monitor the sound.
Could I "split" the signal that comes from the microphone and feed it into the camera but also to an audio amplifier like this: amplifier
Would this reduce the quality of the recorded audio? Also can I safely use any headphones on such an amp (like the ones that come with Apple products)?
