A Day At Chuckwalla Valley Raceway Using Dual Shotguns for Stereo Audio For Video

From Que Audio

We created this video because we love to record audio and shoot video. And who doesn’t love fast cars? We couldn’t think of a better way to show off the Que Audio Location Kit #2!

The video from the close up angle of the Q Boom Girl was captured on the Canon 7d with 28-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS (kit lens). The drive by pans were captured on the Canon 60d with a Tamron `17-50mm F/2.8 lens.

The audio from the Que Audio Location Kit #2 (stereo-bar shotgun recording) went directly to a Tascam DR-100, recorded as 320kb MP3s. A Q Mini Shotgun Mic captured audio directly into the Canon 7d. A Q 210 Shotgun Mic, via Beachtek DXA-SLR mixer, captured the voice sound bites into the 60D.

PluralEyes easily sync’d the audio/video clips in FCP. And Peak was used to convert the audio files after syncing to .WAV files for RT playback in FCP.

A RedRockMicro Shoulder Rig mounted to a Manfrotto 516 head greatly aided in quick panning during the drive by shots captured on the 60d.

A Juicedlink Bracket bar mounted to a Manfrotto 501 head supported the 7D, with a Zacuto Z Finder Pro, as well as a Marshall V-LCD70XP-HDMIPT monitor, the Tascam DR-100, and the Q Mini Shotgun on a Q Mini Boom Pole.
