I need to find a solution for recording Video with a Canon 5D Mark II, I tried using a dynamic mic SM57, but the sound won't play on some computers/iphones on youtube, and the quality of sound is not all that great with the SM57- lots of hiss, even after turning down the camera's manual settings for mic input, the sound is better with the on camera/built in mic, if anyone has any input feel I appreciate it.
Just to clarify, I am using the microphone to record acoustic instruments.
I am using an adapter from mic to camera as well. (XLR to 3mm)
Apologies if this has been covered. -Newby
