Kinda strange if you ask me, a hack was made for a $500 T2i but not a $1600 7D ?  :( Hopefully it will get added soon as this was one of the biggest reasons I installed ML

Its not strange, the toggle is on the other proc (which I enabled), the sense is also on the other proc (which I can't access). So it works if started manually, just its not in the nightly.

If you ask me...... it's strange that people want to record production sound internally with a DSLR.... try a Tascam DR-05 $100, 2 XLR ins, 24bit 96k, and 1000x better than recording sound in camera. Use the 7D's internal sound for sync. or...... if you read a little bit, it's not hard to find a private build that has this feature enabled. Though that's about the extent of the support we can offer.

It more reflects the nature of open software and general ml design idea. People seam to bee keen on developing the new cool feature, not fixing ones that are important for some.

*) the biggest reason for using the DSLR to record sound is convenience, you do not have to track two devices and sync them, I have lost shots because I forgot to press the button on sound recorder, because some of them you have to press rec twice (one arms, second time runs). Especialy when you are one man team.
*) external device and dslr can drift, and it can be significant in the 12 minutes dslr is capable. Even pro cameras drift (I have had experiance that two sony PWD-DR170 DV cams drift apart for whole second (because one was on stage in heat, other back cold). It is not fun to fix that in post.
*)if you can monitor the sound on camera, even better - you can make sure that sound is good enough to be usable.
*)If an external preamp is used sound quality is good enough for interviews and with good mic, even for ambient / sot (sound on tape).

yes there are cons, but I would really "pretty please" fix the audio monitoring for 7D, it is a key feature I'm missing in my camera.
