    Having done multiple-camera tests before, I can say that it's extremely difficult to pull that off and make everyone happy. Each additional camera you add, multiplies the complexity of "getting it right" by an order of magnitude. You have to make sure that the white balance, picture profile, shutter speed, exposure, framing, field of view, and everything else are equalized before and during each and every shot, and ... well, if you've got an operator for each camera it's do-able, but one or two guys trying to run every one of the cameras, it becomes unmanageable very quickly. And when you post your results, everyone whose camera didn't "win" will lambaste you for having done something or other wrong. It's a thankless job.

    Thank you for the article. just an update for 2010. Canon now introduced a control of manual audio levels also you can see them in the menu. down side is that you can only see the bars levels on the menu page. So you have to set the volume before you start recording since there is no way to monitor the levels while you recording. which is still not great as far audio goes but is a great improvement of what it was a year ago. You can't use headphones in the camera since you don't have jack for audio out. However if you hook a external LCD monitor you may be able to monitor your audio that way while you recording.

    Barry,

    Thanks very much for your sharing. It is really helpful for me to decide which one I should get.

    Having owned and shot videos with a 5dm2 for some time, I have to say Barry is spot on about the pro and cons of a rather similar 7D. And yes, the audio falls off the cliff, LOL.
    I'm new in the world of video camera world, and still learning. Thanks DVXusers.
