Here's a test of my Sony NEX-7 with a Sony ECM-Z300 boom or shotgun mic hooked up. The newer version of this mic is the ECM-CG50. Note: The audio captured was only on one of the two stereo channels. This was easily fixed in post with Final Cut Pro X.

Click Here for an updated writeup on my website!
My google+ friend Bruce Turner recommended this Comprehensive iPhone Mic Adapter cable for hooking up an XLR mic to the iPhone. IMO this is a great plug-and-play solution for getting great audio into the iPhone. Especially for interviews in the field. Put your iphone on a tri-pod using The Gliff (another must-have iPhone 4 accessory) and then plug in this cable. Plug in a Shure SM58 and you're good to go. You do need to speak right into the mic but this is a good thing as this will help keep background noise down.
I bought the cable on Amazon for $29.95 and got FREE shipping with Amazon Prime. I'm ordering another on today to have as a backup and to keep in my second kit.

The above setup is for the iPhone. Special note: To hook a mono mic like an SM57 or 58 to a stereo camera like the Sony NEX-7 you can use this simple cable: http://www.amazon.com/HOSA-XLR-3-5mm-Sleeve-wired/dp/B000068NZC/ Special Note: To mount your smart phone on a tripod use this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005LY9FVU/

To cover events you need to carry a lot of heavy gear and to get around fast. The Segway helps me get around in pedestrian areas and works great as a steady cam especially when covering parades. Here I have a Sony NEX-VG10 and a Nikon D700 on a spider holster for quick access. Also see CraigShipp.com

My Walnut Camera Gear cabinet fully loaded. I've been using this cabinet in my mobile office for a few weeks now and I really like having my gear organized and safe when I travel (compartments are padded to absorb road shock).
