The Canon 650D is out and seems very clever indeed. So too the DFSLR users that question the lack of audio monitoring options provided by Canon on the 650D camera. Wait… What is that a typo? You mean DSLR right? NO!! It is spelled right. That F in DFSLR is a for a special breed of shooter too lazy, too stupid, too numpty to realize that there are practical solutions for any short comings in the modern DSLR cameras.
You can of course pop down to the local hardware store and go all out and put a magnificent YouTube video up showing the world what a smarty you are for going all DIYFS. and by now you should have worked out what that F stands for, and that Sescom for $35 have beat you to the audio jack / audio monitoring solution in DSLR cameras.
