Mic for 7D. Help please!
I need to get a solid microphone for my 7D and really know very little about sound. I have very recently gotten a TV show picked up by a few smaller networks, so I need something that is capable of a sound quality good enough for television.... should I get a wireless mic or one that plugs into the camera? Our field crew is only 3 people to begin with as it is a low budget travel/adventure show so it needs to be something easily operable. I already have a Sony V1U with a solid shotgun mic on it... so keep that in mind as well.
If anyone has a depth of knowledge on these kinds of topics please let me know!
Thanks so much!
whats your budget, i know any of the rode mic's produce quality sound, but those range from 150-1000$
a 7D has auto gain control so anything plugged into the camera isnt great. grab a zoom h4n
so based off of this thread, do i need/should i get the videomic pro and then plug it into the zoom h4n...
is that how that works? would I need anything else?
and how do you wirelessly link you audio/video for easy editing capabilities?
(I know nothing about sound haha)
i dont know much about sound too
but im pretty sure you have to use a software to sync your audio and video in post if you use the zoom h4n.
You can also buy a xlr adapter like beachtek or juicedlink, but you have to find a way to disable agc (which i think you can only achieve by using magic lantern).

You dont even need the videomic, the zoom h4n works by itself.
You need to get a software that syncs sound. I know there is plural eyes, but I think a new and improved one has come out with a similar name. Look it up.
^ im pretty sure its called dual eyes but not positive

"Hahaha so how exactly did it go down? You had your penis in her, but she wanted to do this "soaking" thing, so what happened? Did you just kinda hang out and talk while your dick was getting soft inside her?" -AR6rider$
so would the overall consensus be that it is better to record audio & video separately and combine them in post with something like dualeyes, or to use magic lantern to disable agc and then just get a solid mic that can plug into the 7d....?
you cant magic lantern a 7d
