Rode Videomic directly in-cam for the simple projects, seperate-sync Zoom H4n for the big ones.

What am I doing? Ha!

I had to shoot an interview last week (first week owning the camera) and knew it would work great for the footage since I have a fast lens. The audio was going to be my hiccup.

I captured the audio into my Macbook Pro with an M Box Mini 2 (XLR input through USB). I had my shotgun mic on a boom to sit right under her out of frame. It took about 10 sec to perfectly match up the on camera sound with the high quality Garage Band live capture.

It seems like it's a hassle to do it that way, but hey, it worked and I could monitor and backup everything right there.

Will a microphone like the Sennheiser MKE 400 pick up the camera noise like the internal mic does?

mic

Paul

I think he says his sound man is running the shotgun on a boom over the talent so it will pick up the voice better over the noise

what he is in a whole different ball park with the audio aq.

Yes Kirk,

I might not have been enough clear. My fault. English is a foreign language for me. I wasn't using the H4n mkes.

I can tell you the BeachTek is one way not to go. It's pretty much worthless. I have one and the only pro to it is that you can hook up XLR to the 7D. But the mount is off and the meters are not worth anything and the headphone out put is pretty much non existent. Save your money on this POS.

I run double system into a Sound Devices 702, to allow for oversampling audio for extra processing headroom before aliasing, and to leverage those sweet SD preamps and limiters. For really simple audio, I don't even strap a mixer in front of it, to keep things simple, lightweight, and streamlined.

I found all of Zoom's preamps too noisy for my taste, but YMMV!

Are you referring to a Sound Devices MixPre ?

If so, I'm confused by how you setting it up with the attenuator.

I already have a Zoom H2. Anybody compared the quality of that vs the H4N for working with the 7D?

h2

roger

i think the quality will be ok the H4n just has a ton more pro features

I just got mine 2days ago and i can feed it in to the cam for reference and capture on the zoom at normal levels with the AGC on it blows out the audio on the cam!!!

I hope that Magic lantern gets the 7D up and going soon now that the firmware up date has come out and he has something to work from.

any word on progress ??

My solution for making videos at the level I am at (making instructional videos for my classes) I bought a Nady wireless mic system. It is only mono but when editing in vegas I was able to get it on both channels & the system wiped out the background noise I was getting off the internal mic. I am sure there are better set ups but for $50 it did the trick for me.
