First i’d like to note that there is a mistake in this video. As of right now Magic Lantern audio functions are not working on the T3i. They are working on it, but the t3i and 600d have a different audio chip then the rest of canon’s cameras making it difficult to enable audio functionality.

As I mentioned before, the Sescom USB to 3.5mm cable isn’t the cheapest method, but it is convenient.

If you’re handy with a soldering iron and want to save some money Vimeo member Moritz Graeser has this tutorial on building your own Cable out of the cable that is included with your camera. If you still have the cable this method is probably the most cost effective. If you don’t have the cable a replacement AVC-DC400st cable is about $28.  As far as I know you can’t use a standard mini USB cable to make this, but if I’m wrong please let me know.

If you’re a Canon 5d mark II owner Sescom makes a cable that’s only $22 that will do about the same thing.
