This video demonstrates the zoom h4n being used as an input directly to your DSLR. So this enables you to record multiple audio devices into the video file of your mp4. Generally with a "line out" it can sometimes be tricky to get the correct setting to record into the "mic in" of your camera.
The benefit of this setup is that you can record better reference audio or have better on camera audio from the zoom. And have the ability to record seperate tracks of audio at the same time, through one device and monitor the audio coming in.
Set you cameras sound record level to 1 notch up from zero, and the zooms headphones/line out to 55.
Your mic levels from the zoom can be roughly 30-50 record level to be safe.

Attention Filmmakers! If you are sitting around, twiddling your thumbs, waiting for that perfect budget to fund your movie, look no further! Seriously, stop looking. It's time to quit procrastinating and use that crafty mind of yours to make your movie. As long as you have a camera, a friend, and an idea, you're ready to get started.
Update: Thanks so much for all your comments! I am reading them all and enjoy them a lot! I am sorry I can't reply to all of you. I am traveling at the moment and only have internet access once in a while. I hope to get to all the questions eventually. Thanks again!
