So I bought a Canon t3i, and the video quality is fantastic. The problem is that the audio options are awful. You can't monitor the audio while shooting, and if you plug in an external microphone it is only recorded on the left channel, leaving the right channel blank. Also no matter what mic you put into this thing the audio is always outrageously fuzzy. I was just wondering if anyone could suggest a VERY CHEAP camera or audio recorder that I could use to just record the audio with. Mini DV will do fine, as long as it can record audio without a hassle.
