There was a bit of scuffle on one of the reviews, Hong Kong I believe where the shooter was being filmed with a Canon.

Noted so far his take on the setting for microphones, should have been fader adjustable and that the AF doesn't work so well in every instance. Quips about one won't be making a blockbuster movie on it.

I may dissent after time, opine isn't reality and I'll let you folks know after the shooting schedule next week.

I figured out that leaving the mic on auto, allows a milliseconds delay as the signal needs to trigger the device.

So setting it to low, med or high should defeat that lip syncing issue. This also likely uses a tiny bit more battery while being constantly on.

As far as AF, with the variants does anyone here have trouble with the machine tracking and focusing?

Mine so far seem OK as hand held with a long lens (28-70) is fraught with whoopsie and pilot error aside, while mounted onto the Manfrotto 701 HD, the results seem overall very good good. I'll not post, my takes are of family kids and friends of theirs, no permissions etc.

Thoughts?
