    Hi All

    I'm new to the field of audio.

    I own a Canon 7D, and Rode shotgun Mic The NTG-2

    As u all know, there seems to be a problem with the AGC (Audio Gain Control) for the Canon 7D, and when i connect the mic directly to the 7D it seems to catch up a hiss tone.

    i read through the web that i can get a decent sound when i connect the NTG-2 with Zoom H4N

    the question is how can i connect the NTG-2 through the Zoom H4N and the Canon 7D ? i mean which cables shall i buy in order to get a decent sound ?

    and if you can give me the names of the cables

    im kind of new to all this


    thanks all in advance

    Try a search of the forum first. The H4n/NTG-2 combination isn't widely favored due to the H4n's weak pre-amps.

    Also, there are several threads on using Zoom recorders with DSLR cameras.

    Here are some links to get you started:

    Hi Mesho. You can connect an NTG-2 to an H4n, and then connect the headphone output to the mic input on the 7D. The cable you would use to do that is a Sescom LN2MIC-ZMH4-MON:

    The thing is, since you cannot disable the AGC on the 7D, the audio feed you send to the camera from the H4n will still have that uneven "pumping" ambiance sound, because the sound being recorded into 7D is still hitting the 7D's AGC circuit. The recording in the H4n will sound better (providing that you set the levels properly and positioned the mic in the sweet spot), and you'll have better results when you sync the externally recorded H4n audio.
