Onboard sound or seperate recorder?
I'm debating what I should do for audio for my 5d2. The two options I've been looking at are:
1. Rode/ sennheiser mic with a hotshoe mic holder plugged into the upcoming 5d2 Beachtek mixer. (looks awesome! See below)
2. The same mic plugged into a totally separate sound recorder like a Edirol and sync in post.
My background is in filmmaking so I have no worries syncing audio in post. My one concern is the quality of the sound going into the unbalanced, more or less crappy input on the 5d2.
Is better sound quality worth the double system? Or is it a no brainier to get the mixer and use single system because I will get decent quality?
Equipment: Sensor, Glass, Light, Mind

Re: Onboard sound or seperate recorder?
Interesting. That Beachtek looks pretty nice...does it disable/workaround autogain in the 5D2? I didn't see a definitive answer on that. Anyway, I think it really depends on how you plan to shoot. An external recorder will ultimately give you more flexibility (as far as mic location etc.), and a decent external recorder can be had for about the price of the Beachtek.
