"Exciting times with the D7000"


Ocean Grove, AU
          

Hullo all, been hibernating for a while. Back on deck now..been very busy with no Nikon things.....or at least using the many forums (fora?) I am a member of.

Any way, some news and questions.

The news is that I have ben using my Sigma 150-500 OS to shoot the surfers at the nearby Bells Beach Pro..........20 minutes away in a normal car...15 in my MG!!

It was my first shoot of a surfing event. I had some remarkable success, hand held...yes, hand held. The Pro shooters had their enormous Canon's.......did not see one Nikon.....and the average reach was 500mm!! But, I do acknowledge the lens were much 'faster' than mine.

It did not prove to be an issue, as I arrived at 7.15 am, to be greeted by an awesome early 'orange' sunrise which simply lit up Bells. It was the 50th Anniversary of the event. The best swell for years...oh that I could surf!!

Now to my question. I was using the camera to shoot some video of a local folk 'love in' at one our our many seaside cafes. The footage was very good, dare I say excellent, but the sound was mono of course.

I have been looking at a Stereo mike to fit on the hot shoe, and wondered what you all amy use.

My home work suggests on of three, see

http://d7000-microphones.com/2010/11/the-top-3-external-microphone-for-the-nikon-d7000

They all seem to be well reviewed. However, I did come across this.........http://www.azdencorp.com/new/product.php?productid=93733&cat=0&page=

Appreciate your views.

Thanks

Ron

Rather than duplicate things, I suggest you "piggyback" on this thread from a couple of days ago.

Since the quest for a good stereo mic isn't D7000-specific, it would also be worth checking out our dedicated DSLR Video Forum.
