What is Audio?

Almost all digital cameras can record audio to go along with their video-capture abilities. Depending on the make and model of the camera, sound can be recorded in monaural or in stereo using the camera's built-in microphone(s), or via higher-fidelity microphones that plug into the camera's audio jack. Even for still images, most cameras can record short audio annotations that are embedded into the image file.
