I have my Sennheiser mic ready, ordering XLR adapter

Just remember that turning the 5D vertical for video is a bad idea

When I shoot weddings, I sometimes lug around my Canon XLH1 and shoot
video HD video just of certain portions of the wedding and the blend
it in with other shots. I often carry with me a 1DsMII with 24-70
2.8L and a 5D with a 70-200 2.8L AND a huge canon XLH1 on a tripod. I
lug all three around and die during weddings. Now, I will sell my 5D
and my XLH1 and shoot 1080p video using the 70-200 2.8L lens along
with close up shots. So much better for the clients to have some
video especially when they do not hire a videographer. I just hope
the files from the 5DMII can be edited using FCP or adobe premiere
