Nowadays this is the most common sight on shooting video:
Not strange that this is the system we used for a small corporate video gig.
As far as the audio goes the results are great as long as you have a relatively good mic to record with the Tascam, 4 AA don’t last long tough, i really recommend buying the A/C adaptor for when you have access to electricity.
In this 2014 people feel that video is closer to photography that has ever been, just because the photo camera can shoot video, but in reality it just goes to show us that both still and motion require the same set of skills and open mindedness to get sweet and nice results.
PD: The pic was taken with the 10+ year old camera (the 300D, the metadata still dates the image to 1980)
