I am just about to purchase a Canon EOS 600D camera for video use only-interviews etc where something small will be better than humping my rather large broadcast camera around. The interviews will be uploaded to a web page. I am looking at the best option of monitoring the sound. The 600D has no headphone socket. Therefore i am looking at the possibility of utilising the AV output to some type of box that can handle the output mode. If anyone has any ideas other than using a Beachtek box, which i don't really want to do then please let me know. This must be one of the most ridiculous designs by Canon. They put a manual audio control on the camera and no way of monitoring the sound. Amazing. Any ideas folks?
