Thank you for your test
I’m in boat can’t make decision where to go with, I’m also a poor filmmaker..
So I got the canon 60D and I got the mixpre which I was use with HVX200
My question is it worth to buy the padcable and connect the mixpre with 60D ( according noise level )
Building self is not a option
Or is it better to save 50 dollars and buy directly something like external rec zoom h4n or tascam dr-100 with all sync problems.
I mean why would I buy a external rec while I can rec with mixpre directly to the camera if the NOISE LEVEL IS OK ……

Thank you very much for the good video. I have the Canon 5D Mark II and the mixpre. The camera does not record the micro sound but through its own sound device. Do I have to use a special software or cable. I have the miniJack adapter connected to the Canon and on the other extreme to the mixpre with XLR.
I don’t know what to do. I tried everything!! Could you please give me your comment.
Sorry to hear that, it could be a defective cable between the mixpre and the camera. Or there is a problem with the camera, the minijack is quite delicate and could be damaged, the only reason I think of this is because the moment you plug something in -the internal microphone should be disabled. I can’t think of anything else. No special software is needed. Hope you can figure it out. Good luck.
Thank you very much for your comments, it was very helpful for me.
I just went to Canon’s service and they corroborated that the minijack was damaged.
They repair it very quickly and its working!
