The Sweet Sounds of the Canon 5D Mark II | B&H Photo Video Pro Audio

When shooting video with the 5D MkII, there are a couple of caveats to go over. The camera isn’t going to provide any power to the microphone, so we’ll have to make sure power is supplied somehow. The camera also has no audio gain control or any method of monitoring audio levels while capturing. Basically, you plug in your mic and take your chances. You can play back your clips on the camera, and listen using the built-in speaker. Volume can be adjusted using the index wheel. Sorry, but there is no headphone jack on the camera.
