Dear Canon 5D Mark II Users,
I want to thank everyone who responded with comments and suggestions on how to improve the about-to-be released DXA-5D XLR adapter. We have incorporated some of these ideas into the design. The adapter is now in the final tooling stage of production and we are on track for an April release date.
As many of you are aware, the audio features of this camera seem to be added as an after thought. The lack of a headphone jack, AGC disable feature, and noisy preamplifiers make capturing professional audio a real challenge. Our DXA-5D will address some of these problems. We have also developed some other accessories that will give you the ability to capture very high quality audio with an external recorder when audio is critical. I will send more information on this solution shortly.
Please keep the comments and suggestions coming!
Cheers,Harry KaufmannProduct SupportBeachTekThe Audio Adapter Specialists
