Sound for Canon 7D
Ok, so I've got a canon 7D and am now looking to improve the audio I record.

I know the H4n recorder is highly recommended, but is it better than using a shotgun mic for example?

By using a shotgun attached to the hot shoe, is the sound recorded simultaneously with my video on my memory card? Do I have to marry sound and video in fcp?
I'm not so good at all this audio stuff unfortunately, so I need some help choosing the best microphone for a travel kit for my 7D.

Thankful for any suggestions!
