The Sony XLRK3M XLR Microphone is a dual-channel digital XLR audio adapter that allows you to connect microphones and other audio sources to cameras equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe.
The adapter is able to produce its best quality by delivering a digital audio stream directly to the camera through the Multi Interface Shoe when used with the Sony A7RIV. Other Sony cameras with the standard MI Shoe can still make use of the microphone as there is a selectable digital/analog output.
The XLR-K3M features two XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs with 48V phantom power, and a 3.5mm stereo input with plug-in power, all with individual level controls. Intuitive controls make the adapter easy to use right out of the box. An ECM-XM1 shotgun is included so you can immediately start recording your YouTube videos, Facebook Live streams, and interviews, at home, in the studio, or on the go.
Great sound with low noise
When connected via the Multi Interface Shoe of a compatible camera that features a built-in digital audio interface, the audio signal is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that no degradation can occur. A simple switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analogue interface.
Two XLR/TRS combo jacks and one 3.5 mm stereo mini microphone jack are provided for input. The XLR/TRS combo jacks are switchable for line input, microphone input, or microphone input with 48V phantom power.
Simply clip the XLR adaptor into the Multi Interface Shoe on a compatible camera for direct power and audio connections without the need for extra cables or batteries. Sony’s Multi Interface Shoe offers intelligent connectivity and control for a variety of accessories, providing maximum flexibility and mobility for α system shooting.
A high degree of flexibility is provided for use with professional rigs and camera cages. Audio extension cables are supplied, allowing the location of the XLR adaptor on your rig to be adjusted as required.
Mechanical noise suppression
An advanced shock and vibration suppressing design effectively minimises low-frequency handling noise which can degrade audio quality. The option for direct on-camera mounting, without additional connecting cables, further reduces the risk of handling noise ruining your audio capture.
Comprehensive controllability at the recording stage can greatly facilitate the post processing workflow. Record level (AUTO/MANUAL), record level link (INPUT 1 – INPUT 2), attenuator, and low-cut filter (100/300 Hz) controls are provided.
Super-directional shotgun microphone included
A super-directional monaural microphone (ECM-XM1) a wind noise reducing fur-type wind screen are supplied.
