Such an arguable topic, more than hundreds of videos on YouTube about this.

Just a heads up that the Pocket Cinema cameras do include a professional phantom powered XLR port. And if you do need to shoot corporate interviews for 8hrs, you can easily D-tap power your camera from a V-mount or goldmount battery for all day recording, or plug into wall power.

+1 on this. I shot 3 days of interviews with the Pocket 6K and it was great. Used the XLR port with phantom power to run the overhead shotgun mic and I had a V-Mount battery powering the camera (D-Tap cables for this camera are easy to come by).
