    Designed to minimize mechanical noise
    The hardware is designed to effectively minimize low-frequency vibration and mechanical noise. No mechanical noise will be transmitted via connecting cables, since no cables are used to connect the adaptor to the camera. Weight has been reduced (by approx. 25%over the previous model, XLR-K2M), and the strength of the microphone holder has been increased.

    Power supply from camera
    The MI (Multi Interface)Shoe compatibility means that no independent power supply or audio connection cables between the adaptor and camera are required. The power supply from the camera and camera connection cables makes it possible to offer all of this capability in an extremely compact system.

    Versatile Connectivity
    A supplied MI Shoe audio extension cables allow the adaptor to be mounted on professional rigs and camera cages in a variety of ways, expanding the use of the XLR-K3M adaptor kit from on to off camera positions

    A variety of input connectors
    Two combo XLR/TRS connectors and one 3.5mm stereo mini microphone connector are provided. The combo XLR/TRS connectors function as line inputs, microphone inputs, and microphoneinputs with +48V phantom power. In addition to microphones, the combo XLR/TRS connectors can be used to receive input from line sources such as electronic musical instruments.

    Audio level link function
    Audio level control for INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 can be linked or unlinked as required.When the inputs are linked there is no need to adjust INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 independently, making stereo recording easier. Link works with the AUTO and MANUAL record level modes.

    Switches between digital and analog input. Should be set to DIGITAL when connected to a Multi Interface Shoe with built-in digital audio interface.
