I use an H2n mounted on my Canon G40. It works extremely well. I record stereo in M/S, but have used it in surround as well. No problems with operator noise. Now with the latest firmware update it can record in Ambisonic B-format which can be decoded into multiple surround formats including 5.1. The H2n also outputs a live stereo signal that can be plugged into your camera, if it accepts a line input, for recording at the same time and bypassing the cameras own mic. It records in WAV format rather than inferior mp3. Also a very effective deadcat is available for those windy locations.
