Hi,

I searched and didn't find a topic on this easily. This is my first post. I am not new to photography but I am new to this camera and stepping up to a digital SLR.

When I take videos with the T4i, the audio is totally disrupted by the sound of the lens focusing and refocusing. Is there anyway to avoid this or will I end up having to buy a separate video camera? Thanks in advance for your input. Frank

I think T4i can support STM lenses which apparently have silent focusing. Or manual focus.

Same with the T5i, and I solved the issue by going with an external microphone.

That works for a subject that is close, and I have a hand-held digital audio recorder (Zoom H1) I can use separately and then combine sound and video in post.

Right now I working on combining them, playing with the settings. You can have your external mic connected to the mic jack on the Zoom, then the line out on the Zoom connected to the mic jack on the camera to get a better quality of sound without having to sync them later.

Haven't got the settings right yet, but I know it is do-able since others out there have done the same.

Hope that helps.

Yep time to get an STM lens. The 18-55 can be found cheap, around $130 in white boxes (pulled apart kits that are sold for less than retail). No warranty but at that price not a big deal. I got mine this way and it is a great little lens for video as it is light and focuses silently.
