Microphone for KP

looking for a stereo mic to improve audio for my KP are the camera powered mics pretty much standard at 2V input power...

Lots of Mics out there. Personally I would avoid the camera powered mics in favor of mics with their own power. Rode makes a nice stereo mic that will work well. I think a better option is something like the Rode video mic pro which is dual mono but very directional. Depends upon your application. Stereo mics are good for immersive nature walks etc. the directional mics are best for interviews, YouTube content and music. One feature to look for is a +/-dB mode for different sound environments. Rode mics have nice accessories like boom, extension cords and adapters for your iPhone.
