If you are using the 5D2, get the magic lantern firmware with AGC off.

I use the Rode stereo mic on the 5D MKII.
So far I am happy with it. Dead cat is included.... :-)

Anyone actually using the beachtek device on their 5Dmkii? or 7D for that matter.
I want to get my audio quality sorted, and am considering one.
I have also seen the juicedlink version
I would prefer not to go the separate digital recording device route given my situation, so am *hoping* one of these will be suitable.
I currently have a Rode Stereo Video mic, but find it a bit "wide" for picking up spoken word, so am also considering one of these Sniper Kits from Que Audio.
Your advice is appreciated as always!

Magic Lantern is now not necessary for audio since Canon's latest firmware allows ACG over-ride and manual gain control. In fact ML is simply a firmware overlay...which vanishes every time you turn the camera off. Not very practical for out of the studio work!
