Audio recording options with 7D
on Oct 14, 2009 at 11:30:06 pm

Hey guys,

Just got my 7D yesterday and, well, it's pretty much killed any reason to keep my hvx200 w/ Letus. One of the few things I know I will need is a reliable way to record audio - and sync it.

Anyone care to share tips they use when recording audio with a 5D or 7D? I'm thinking of getting a Tascam digital recorder with xlr inputs, but unless I can get timecode from the 7D to match 'current' time, I'm not sure what the best way to achieve sync is other than doing it manually.

Any ideas?

Most people are using old school double system....leave the camera mike on to record a scratch track...use your external digital recorder to record actual audio then synch using Pluraleyes software...check out phillip bloom website for extensive info on using the 7d...I've had mine about two weeks and have had good audio from the built in mike for just nat sound...i have a sony pcm-d50 digital audio recorder...also check out juicedlink audio adapters...lots of choices....
regards,
marcel

Thanks Marcel. I bought the Zoom H4n with the Readheaded Windscreen - the cute demo videos of the windscreen won me over. Pluraleyes looks great, btw. Can't wait to try it out!
