OK let me start with Hi, I'm New to Camera Labs Forum ,It seems more and more people are using DSLR for Video but all to often i hear " Great picture and great Lenses BUT the sound is quite honestly S*** " and thats a quote from a Canon 5D II owner (not me) but not only Canon , Nikon too have poor audio even with an external mic if you can use one ,as not all cameras have a mic input, so What is the answer?
I myself have been recording sound seperately for several years for slide audio overlay,sound on video and now sound on DSLR Video,back when i was starting it was a small 35mm and a Cassette Recorder with mic,from there to DAT (old and tattered 2nd hand thing) then onto MD and HI-MD PCM and now a Tascam DR 100 all these were i might add at the Budget end of the ranges.
So what do you use ?
You have a DSLR and Record Video ,What about your audio ?
is it an Edirol R 09,a Tascam DR100,a Zoom H2 or H4n or more pro kit like the Sound Devices 442 mixer and 722 recorder with a selection of mics?
I would love some feedback on this subject, be it a ZOOM or Sound Devices setup
All the best Tony (UK)
