Beachtek DXA-5D DSLR XLR adapter
The BeachTek DXA-5D is a two-channel, transformer balanced XLR adapter for attaching external microphones and other audio gear to the Canon 5D Mark II camera. It can also be used with any camcorder or other audio recording device that has a built-in mic jack.
The DXA-5D is very easy to set up and use. It allows you to connect a wide variety of audio devices including professional condenser microphones that require 48 volt phantom power to operate. The built-in level meters show the input signal strength at a glance while the trim controls allow you to adjust the input level for optimum recording. The headphone jack lets you monitor the audio that is coming out of the adapter.
The DXA-5D uses high quality balancing transformers, which are completely noise free for superb audio. The adapter mounts to the bottom of the camera and can also be mounted to any standard tripod.
