      Hey guys,

      I’m looking to purchase a Canon DSLR in the near future to use on shorts/features/music vids/docos. In order to use one of these cameras (550D, 7D & 5D) effectively and in a similar style to other video cameras it seems one must purchase the RED ROCK bundle (http://magazine.creativecow.net/article/the-redrock-micro-dslr-cinema-bundle-for-the-canon-5d-mkii) that allows you to shoot hand held similar to a shoulder mount video cam setup..

      Has anyone purchased this kit and if so what are your thoughts thus far? Is there anything else (accessories/etc) you think you need to use these cameras for music videos/features/shorts?

      I’ve also been reading you should definitely record audio seperately and sync later.. thoughts?

      Regards,

      John

      Stox,

      Over the years I’ve heard nothing but good things about Redrock and their gear. You’re on the right track about recording separate audio with a DSLR though there are audio adapters you can use for input. You’ll still record ‘reference audio’ on the camera itself even with an external recording device. Make sure you use a slate with a clapper or do a ‘clap’ when you start each take so you’ll be able to sync up the audio in post.
