First post here. I've just started workig with my new t5i, which I'm using to work on my ongoing video tutorial series. In the manual I see how it is possible to set the audio input level maually for an external mic but I can't figure out how to navigate to the menu that allows me to do this. I have pored over the user manual a number of times and can't find this information. Can anyone help?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Note that you can use the touch screen at any point to substitute for pressing SET and navigating the menu structure as described above.

Same camera in different shooting modes. The menus I described would be for shooting video in "P, Tv, Av, or M". Anything else will give you a smaller menu selection like you have already seen.

No reason that M (manual) wouldn't work for you in that situation.
I would suggest the following settings:
Shutter = 1/60s (assuming you're shooting 30p video)
Aperture = Something from f/5.6 and f/8 (assuming solo instrument)
ISO = Whatever you need to get the right exposure for that venue.
As long as the lighting remains consistent throughout, this will do. Remember the maximum record time of 29:59.

I was referring to manual shooting mode and not manual focus. Your camera will autofocus during video in M shooting mode. Just make sure that the subject is in the center of the frame.

Can anyone help with my manual audio problems now?
I came across this thread, as I just received my Rode Videomic GO. I couldn't figure out how to get it to work, so I was searching on Google(obviously).
Well, I did EVERYTHING as stated in the first answer at the beginning of this thread, and my mic is STILL NOT picking up any sound.
The only sound I am getting, is this weird noise because the camera is plugged in (it doesn't do it when it's not plugged in, using the camera internal mic).
I'm hoping I didn't get a faulty mic (I did buy it refurbished). But I'm hoping I'm just missing doing something here to get it to work, pick up sound and stop making the weird sound it makes!
