7D audio

You can use the Magic Lantern Hack to disable AGC on the 7D. It's not destructive, boots off your memory card when you boot the camera. It has a few other nice tricks up it's sleeve also.

The input is mic level, but you can buy a beachtek adapter to give you two XLR and a line input for it. They aren't powered so no condensers and are going to starve any decent dynamic mic so I'd only use it to bring line in from a mixer or something. Unless you are needing serious fidelity, you'll probably get roughly equal results running a mixer into the mic input at a very, very low level.
