    I make youtube bass covers of songs and am looking to "up" the quality of my videos. I want to avoid a pc for editing/mixing and just get a good live take of the playing. I am aware of the Zoom Q3 and the Kodak ZI8 Handy Recorders, but I find the quality is always lacking in either video or audio. I own a Tascam DR-07 field recorder which is good for live audio. This has a line in and a line out. Is there any way I could use the line out on this and have it go into a line in in a HD camera, which I could buy. Also, if I attached the Zoom H6 to a DSLR the audio and video will be seperate, correct? Is there any to "auto mix" the audio and video? Or is there a DSLR camera with xlr inputs built in? Something you can just hit record on and get great audio and video?

    You can line out of the Zoom using 1/8th inch jacks into the DSLR and if you set the DSLR's gain to just 1 or 2 ticks above 0, you will have a clean signal. If you're talking about that brand new Zoom h6, supposedly it has very clean amps. If your DSLR has AGC that can't be turned off (few do now, even the 7D finally got manual control) then that solution won't work.
