Rather than getting bogged down over which DSLR has the best microphone socket and lug straps, and then discussing it for 7 days on a 500 page thread, some take the approach that I too prefer. Get your arse outside. Shoot something. Preferably not your arse!
Here is a short video inspired by Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann. I was dissatisfied with the first edit of Shadow Glance last year so have re-done it. This is a mixture of old 5D Mark II 30p footage and Panasonic GH1 24p footage and I like the re-edit much more now.
