Hi all,

Love the image quality when using the mk 2 for filming. However, when I'm out and about I like to fill with image stabiliser on. Problem is, the noise of this is picked up by the onboard mic. I even bought the rode video mic pro but that too picks up he motor noise.

This for me, given how I like to use te camera, effectively renders it usefulness for filming. Has anyone got any suggestions? Very disappointed at the money.

Have a look here, as there are many more owners of the 5D who can help you out.

You can try putting the Rode mic and 5D on a flash bracket; which can be used for hand-held or on a tripod:

It doesn't have to be put up top like that; there are different flash brackets that go off to the side and/or at a further distance away from the motor.
