Capture high-quality, low-noise recordings from your favorite XLR microphone directly to your camera with the TASCAM CA-XLR2d-AN XLR Microphone Adapter Kit for Cameras. This version attaches to your camera's shoe mount and connects to the camera's external audio input via the included 3.5mm cable. Two AA batteries supply power for the preamp and 48V phantom power for condenser microphones, making this version well suited for use with mirrorless/DSLR models from Nikon and many other manufacturers.

Run time is variable depending on the type of batteries and mic inputs used, with alkaline models supplying between 3 and 6 hours of operation, while lithium-ion batteries will keep the unit running for between 8 and 14.5 hours.

Select the Best Microphone for Your Application Choose the appropriate microphone or input that matches your application. From a single shotgun mic for interviews or dialog to dual dynamic or condenser mics for stereo imaging or the entire audio mix fed from the master mixer, using the line-level capability, the CA-XLR2d supports a wide variety of shooting applications. HDDA Mic Preamp for High Quality Sound with Low Noise & Wide Dynamic Range The CA-XLR2d is equipped with a high-definition discrete-architecture microphone preamplifier that can process anything from room tone to explosions, making it well suited to a wide range of sets and environments. Each input supports microphone/line-level switching and a +48V phantom power supply. The CA-XLR2d allows input of dynamic microphones, condenser microphones, and line-level audio signals from a mixer. Designed for a High Degree of Freedom A cold shoe on the top panel expands setting flexibility. The shockmount mechanism is vibration and noise resistant and allows you to connect various microphones. With two XLR/TRS input connectors and one 3.5mm stereo mini microphone input jack, the CA-XLR2d has the flexibility to adapt to the gear necessary for the job and work in a wide variety of shooting scenarios. A 3.5mm output terminal with headphone mode provides latency-free direct monitoring or analog camera connection. Built-In Processing with User-Friendly Control for Clean and Clear Recordings Internal processing options such as Auto Level, a Low-Cut Filter, and a Limiter are on board, all using convenient switches. The 1+2 LINK function allows you to adjust the L/R volume simultaneously when recording in stereo. Analog Interface Kit TASCAM has collaborated with Nikon to create an in-camera recording solution for XLR mics, using the included 2 x AA battery box and cold shoe mount adapter. An included cable connects the CA-XLR2d's analog out to the camera's 3.5mm mic input jack allowing the CA-XLR2d to work as an analog audio adapter and deliver high-quality sound from XLR mics to a wide range of existing camera users.
