Is it possible to use the Zoom H1 as an external Mic for the TM700(or any other camcoder) ,which works like the Rode video mic or the azden?
Yes, but you need a special cable to do so. What you would do is connect the 3.5mm headphone output of the Zoom H1 to the 3.5mm mic input on the TM700. The trouble is that the headphone output on the H1 is line-level (which is a loud signal), and the input on the video camera is mic-level (which is designed to accept a soft signal). What you need is a short cable with a built-in -25dB attenuator that adjusts the signal from line-level to mic-level.
The cable that does this is the Sescom LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N. You are also going to need a shoe adapter, one that will screw into the 1/4" 20 thread on the Zoom H1 and allow you to fasten it to the shoe on the camera, like the Pearstone Male Accessory Shoe Adapter.
The microphones on the Zoom H1 are stereo mics, not shotgun. Using a Sescom cable like this is a handy way to get some dual functionality out of a portable digital recorder, but it doesn't completely cover all of the benefits that you gain by having a dedicated on-camera shotgun mic.
