I'm already face down in the mud on this, but I'll ask anyway. I use a Nikon D7000 for stills and video and have been satisfied. Both are continually accepted here. I've uploaded some video, very few, using a Rode mic on a boom. I'm careful and diligent and want to record voiceover clips without video. Is it a fools errand to use my current technology for voiceovers? Or is the Zoom H4n I've been reading about a much better way to go? This will all be controlled studio work.
Thanks very much, Ken

The DSLR with a Rode shotgun mic will do the job, but the Zoom H4n will give you much more control with proper XLR input and 48v phantom powering. The built in mic on the Zoom is excellent for wild sound or stereo music recording, but doesn't have the punch for voiceover work. I would recommend a large diaphragm mic such as the Rode NT2. Record in a deadened environment, and you'll get close to a recording studio sound.
