Audio on K-5 video recordings

With the right mic, can I get stereo sound on video recordings on my K-5? Definitely need a mic, but not sure what to get.

I like Zoom H1. It is an audio recorder that you can record separately and add to your video later. Or you can adjust the volume and run line out to the K5.

This guy's right! Regarding stereo, the K-5 manual says that it accepts stereo! So if you get the right mic, you're all set!
