Yeah, the audio is pretty much non-existent on the 5N. But I imagine if you're really serious about audio you'll use a dual-system setup anyway so it doesn't really matter.

I am not "really serious" about audio, but I am seriously considering a Tascam DR-05 Portable Digital Recorder or a Zoom H1 Handy Portable Digital Recorder and syncing it together later in iMovie (see, I use iMovie -- I can't be "really serious" about audio or video). I just want better audio.

I wasn't trying to be snobby. I've just read a lot of material suggesting that dual-system audio is the way to go with DSLRs. I'm looking at the Tascam DR-07 Mk II myself.

I like iMovie. In many ways it's better than Final Cut and Premiere - no needless complication. Tellingly, whenever I have to cut something together quickly I generally use iMovie.
