Basically the question is what audio is going to be better: DR-40 (internal mics) or DR-60 (with RODE VideoMic (not pro))?
hm, I see. I don't why don't they add a second line out. I know, that you should go for a more professional recorder if you want two lines out. But this is more of a size problem than a money problem :D
I know. I was really thinking about buying it. It is the most professional audio thing that I could own. But, it means that I would HAVE to take my mic always with me. I'm not sure if it is something I would like to do.
Do you know how good/bad are those build in mics on the DR-40? I think I would like the flexibility of having stereo and directional and a recorder in a one box.
DR-60 mkii is super professional and everything, but I'm not sure if it something for me.
I don't have a real workflow yet, since my content varies so much.
Don't you think that I could split the line-out cable from the DR-40 and feed it both into my camera and to headphones at the same time?
Man, I hate deciding :D
I burned my self on the videomic, and I'm afraid I will on this too :D
70D - totally happy about the picture quality. Low light could be better, headphone jack would save a lot of time.
I've never used any of them. But I think that if you go with A7s you will have to spend so much aditional money on audio acersory, cages, handles etc.C100 should work out of the box. And the money you would have spend on the extra stuff you can use to buy a small point and shoot like the Canon G7X, Sony rx100 (etc.), which both do 60 fps and they have some different pros and cons but they are really pocketable.
Have you considered getting a shotgun on a boom and a boom operator? Since you have the H6 already, he can check his levels and monitor his audio on his own and walk with them. If it is a steady shot, you can remove him in post, or frame it in a way he is not in the shot.
