Why not run the audio and video separately, through a mixer (or Zoom h4n if
you want a portable option).     Run separately then merge it in post.
If you do do that then you will need to change the bit-rate of the audio
recording to match the video, as they run at different rates.    If you
don't then the audio will gradually go out of sync.

I know mostly audio, but you could reach out to Daniel from   He does a lot with quality digital SLR
video recording with high-end audio.   Most of what I know came from
listening to him.
