Attaching microphones to 7D

This is probably a really dumb question but.....

I want to record sound externally with a zoom HD4 using my NGT3 mic, but I also want to attach a Rode videomic to the camera so I can synch the audio later.

The camera will be hand held and I will be moving around quite a bit and I'm filming solo so no one to hold the Zoom for me.

Do I have to attach both mics to the camera? If so how?

Are there other alternatives?

Get a flash bracket like this:

And one of these for the Zoom:

The flash bracket gives you two extra shoe mounts and a handle for handheld shots. The shoe adapter makes it so you can tilt the Zoom and monitor levels.

Re: Attaching microphones to 7D

this looks interesting for connecting multiple devices to the camera:
