The EOS 5D Mark II, one of the latest offerings from Canon, is the world's first dSLR camera to offer Full HD video recording capability. But what if you want to capture great sounding audio to accompany your great looking video? The 5D MkII records stunning video clips at a 1080p resolution with a frame rate of 30fps, but the audio is recorded with a tiny built-in mono microphone. Thankfully the camera also includes a stereo 3.5mm microphone input that will enable you to capture much better audio than that offered by the built-in mic. Shooting video on the MkII is very easy.

The Neumann KU 100 Dummy HeadNo, B&H does not sell mannequin parts (at least, not that I'm aware of). The Neumann Dummy Head is a stereo microphone that's designed to capture sound the same way human ears do. It can be used to create incredibly realistic sounding ambient recordings, but more importantly, the microphone itself is really, really cool looking.
