I need to purchase a sound package for shooting interviews and live action Tango dancing in Buenos Aires, Argentina on my Canon T2i. I spoke to a sales rep at Trewaudio and he recommended either Zoom H4N or Juiced link, http://www.trewaudio.com/trewaudio/dslr_audio_package/ but hadn't actually used either. I also need microphones. I want something with broadcast quality. Thanks for your suggestions.

Go to the audio section of the forum. I'm searching for some solutions as well and there are a few good plans for my 60D. It's a good idea to research in audio before buying. Lot of experienced audio guys there ready to hammer all the bad choices and set you on the right path. You could easily spend a lot of money and get the wrong gear listening to local salesman.

Thanks for the advice. You picture reminds me of Robert Wagner. Do you know anything about frequency issues when recording sound in foreign lands? Do you recommend using hard wire mics over wireless to avoid having to purchase a wireless set up for Argenitna's radio frequencies?

That is a 60s photo of Syd Mead who's futurist design works have shaped the modern film industry.

I always use wired mics unless it is impossible. If you want the equivalent audio quality in wireless prepare to spend many times more than wired mics.
