I'm an old hand at still photography, but new to videography. I recently bought a Canon 7D, understand that I should consider an external mic for videography, and have been considering the likes of a Rode VideoMic.
Three questions about theH1:
1) I understand that dSLRs easily transfer control-button and even AF noises
to their internal mics and even to non-shock-mounted external mics that
are attached to the camera. Does theH1 include an integral shock mount
for its two mics?
2) If using the H1, I'd want to simultaneously record audio in the camera
(for those times when I'd like to post a quick file, before doing extensive
audio/video editing). Obviously I can record from the dSLR's internal
mic, but can the 3.5mm output from the H1 be connected to the camera's
camera's external mic input, or is it voltage far enough above normal
"line level" that I would not be able to safely record the output of the
H1 in the camera itself?
3) Do you know of a more effective windscreen (wind muff) for the H1 than
the foam one that comes with it? Say, something similar to the WindTech
Mic Muffs or the Rode DeadCat muff?
