Sound recording for DSLR video

->> Like the title says, I'm looking for audio recording solutions for DSLR video.

I'd love to hear what you use and why, regardless of whether you use on-camera shotgun mics, off-camera XLR mics, wireless lavalier mics, hand-held recorders, etc. etc. etc.

Any and all feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

->> I've been using a Tascam DR-110MKII for a blend of shotgun and wireless lav depending on my subject. Using one or the other, or both.

I've recorded with the Tascam and synced later or used it to feed my 5D3 with an audio signal. When I use it to feed my 5D3, I turn the 5D3's preamp down to 1 notch above 0, and control all gain on the Tascam since it's preamps are much cleaner.

A recent project shot with that combo:

->> The 5d3's have a relatively clean pre-amp so I'm recording right into camera. A must have for news production because of simplicity and speed.

Rhode Video Mic Pro (baby shotgun) in channel 1 and Wireless lav in channel 2. The camera records discreet channels just like a "real" video camera. I bought a male stereo TRS Y-splitter to two female Mono TS to take advantage of controlling the volume of the shotgun and lav in post. Turn the in-camera volume down to the lowest level possible in manual mode and you're good to go.

I will say that my baby shotgun (even at the +20db setting) doesn't provide a strong enough signal. Anyone have any suggestions?

->> So Garrett, You are using the splitter to feed two different mics into the single 5D III input? Can you post a photo of your setup?

->> I also use the H4N zoom. I synch with Pluraleyes. Very good quality in my opinion. It also can act as a 4trk recorder for soundtrack stuff.

->> I used a beachtek for a couple years but it just wasn't clean going into the camera. I'm a fan of the Tascam dr60. Records onto SD while also giving you output to your camera for sync later. Being able to see and adjust levels throughout recording is a big plus.
