How to Shoot with Dual System Sound on a Canon DSLR

Daniel Plym shoots for the online entertainment mag Buzzine, and as a result he shoots a lot of red carpet interviews -- on a DSLR. He's responsible for both video and audio as a one man operation, and he manages to shoot dual-system without an audio guy. Here, he breaks down how he's able to do this via the combination of a 5D Mark II, Sennheiser wireless mic, Zoom H4n, and the Pluraleyes plugin for Final Cut Pro. His tutorial is clear and concise -- perfect if you're not yet shooting dual-system but are thinking about doing so:

For more on DSLR audio options, of course, there's the Audio chapter of The DSLR Cinematography Guide.

What version of FCP are you using? Is there a comparable software for Adobe Premiere?
