Hi Kyle - welcome to the world of DSLR video! You've chosen a couple of very good value-for-money options for your ePhoto shoulder rig & follow focus and, especially that Opteka mic. One caveat - please make sure you download the latest Canon firmware upgrade for the 7D in order to get manual control of your audio level. Otherwise, the floor noise from Automatic Gain Control will negate any benefit you might gain from your terrific new mic.
Good luck and best of the holidays,
