Many of the direct recording audio solutions for Canon DSLR Cameras involve large boxes and other random Items in order to get the audio into your camera. But once the audio is being recorded by your camera how do you know if it is any good?
Well with the the help of a FiiO e5 headphone amplifier:
and a female RCA to 3.5mm adapter:
You can add audio monitoring functionality to your Canon DSLR Camera (when using a field monitor).
I have two people to credit in this video. The first one is Christian Sundsdal. He is the one I mentioned who hooked the rode VideoMic and FiiO e5 together. You can find out more about him here: http://vimeo.com/sundsdal
And the second is Youtube member Freyguyproductions. He sent in the question that got me started looking for this solution. You can find his blog here: http://Freyguyproductions.blogspot.com
NOTE: Remember this is for use with a field monitor. You need either an HDMI monitor or a little composite input monitor. See: http://www.dslrfilmnoob.com/2011/01/30/dirt-cheep-monitor-project/
The screen on the camera goes black as soon as you plug the usb-composite adapter into your camera. If you aren’t using a field monitor this probably isn’t the way to go.
