A 2 XLR to mini-headphone (3.5mm) adapter that mounts under a camera.
The 5Da does NOT have phantom power through XLR and is designed to be used with our powered microphones such as the Sennheiser or Rode shotgun mics. It will not work with unpowered mics like the Shure lavelier or handheld microphones.
The Beachtek DXA-5D allows two sources to be input, including timecode feeds. 2 XLR sockets are used for input, although it offers an auxiliary mini-headphone input as well. Inputs are switchable between ‘Mic’ and ‘Line’ level input. Output is through a mini-headphone (3.5mm) jack. This adapter is specifically designed for dSLRs such as the Canon 5DMkII and Nikon D300s.
Now you can easily attach two professional audio devices to your camera with monitoring and control features. The DXA-5Da is very easy to set up and use. The level meters show the exact signal strength at a glance while the headphone output lets you monitor what you are recording. A unique AGC Disable feature controls the wild swings of the Auto Gain Control that plague most SLR cameras. This reduces the noise during quiet moments of recording allowing you to record two channels of clean audio. Fits neatly under any camera and can also be mounted to a tripod. Operates on one 9 volt battery.
