Well the Subject kind of talk for itself but let me be clearer about it ;
I'm a french camera man/editor (so i already apologize for my poor english
) and i've been willing to get a video camera for a couple of years now. I'm also a passionate of photography so here is my dilemma :
I wanna do both (videos / pictures) which means i wanna include my work within my passion into the same device, so my first choice went for a DSLR (such as the 5D mk2).
But, for my job, i do a lot of interviews which can be very tricky for a DSLR; I'd rather have some XLR microphone(s) that i can plug than some jack ones; I know there are some adapters (such as dxa-5d) but that's pretty huge & heavy i think. Maybe there are some other choices to have proper audio during interviews, and i'd be thrilled to hear them, but is a 5d mk2 a good choice for certain purposes in videos?
I've rent and used the 7D and 5dmk2 for 2 years and i always used the sennheiser mke400 but i need some real mics for now on.
I don't know if i explained myself very clearly to you guys, but i'm around if you need more details.
