    Thanks for the tip!

    And it sounds okay? Any chance of a sample (and a pic)?

  2. #12 If I knew how to post pictures here. . . 
    . . . I'd be happy to shoot one.

    And audio sample is more difficult just now, but I'm telling you, it's great for a scratch mic. . . and might, under the right circumstances, actually work for real audio when it's up pretty close. I'm sure it's no Schoeps CMC641 or CMIT5U (our boom mics), but it's the first time I've gotten a decent scratch mic sound out of that camera. That button mic was a catastrophe.

    Which stereo-to-mono right-angle adapter did you get? And how high can you crank the internal pre-amps before they get trash?

    I just meant a quick little clip thrown up on youtube to Vimeo with talking or something at 3 to 6ft from the camera (just to get an idea).

    Make sure you have a timecode box on the camera as well, they're so small you can use them with a gimbal no problem, and they're even more useful for syncing with than a mic is
