Trying to use the audio-in of the 7D is a pointless exercise in frustration. The AGC, which Canon stupidly doesn't let you disable, makes it impossible for any reasonable audio quality to be recorded via the mic jack, regardless of the format it's recording to anyways.

You WILL NOT get away with not using an external recorder, unless you buy an adapter that costs as much as the recorder would anyways.
