Next gen 7D with XLR?
The 7D has a 2.5mm stereo jack input for remote audio input so you have a solution. Although it’s conjecture on my part, I personally don’t foresee Canon adopting the XLR3 architecture.
Apologies if this has been covered here before but ... my husband and I are radio producers interested in upgrading our photographic/video capabilities. We've been very intrigued by the 7D and would go ahead and purchase were it not for the crappy audio in on the body. We've heard rumors of a next gen model that may have an audio XLR in. Has anyone heard about this ... details on timeline? Is it likely to happen before the end of 2010? Or are we better to buy something now?
