The Tascam XLR2d XLR Microphone Adapter Kit for Canon Cameras lets you capture high-quality, low-noise recordings from your XLR microphone directly to your Canon camera. This version includes an accessory shoe that takes advantage of Canon's multi-accessory shoe to provide a cable-free digital audio connection to the camera, avoiding any deterioration in sound quality and eliminating the work of synchronizing images and sound in post production.


The accessory shoe also allows the camera to supply the adapter with power for the analog-to-digital converter and the 48V phantom power needed for condenser microphones. Two AA batteries will also power the unit, and the 3.5mm output jack will connect to just about any camera's 3.5mm audio input, using the supplied cable; meaning the CA-XLR2d-C can work as an analog audio adapter with a wide variety of mirrorless/DSLR cameras. The audio output can also serve as a headphone jack for real-time monitoring in the field.


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-C supports a wide variety of shooting applications.


HDDA Mic Preamplifier for High Sound Quality with Low Noise & Wide Dynamic Range

The CA-XLR2d-C 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-C 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 combo XLR-1/4" input connectors and one 3.5mm stereo mini microphone input jack, the CA-XLR2d-C 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. The unit supports 16/24-bit rates and 48/96 kHz sampling rates.


Canon Digital Interface Kit

Tascam has collaborated with Canon to create an in-camera recording solution for XLR mics using the multi-accessory shoe connection. This provides a cable-free digital audio transmission directly into the camera along with a buss power supply from the camera to create an efficient and highly mobile solution.
