Great sound with low noise
When connected via the Multi Interface Shoe of a compatible camera that features a built-in digital audio interface, the audio signal is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that no degradation can occur. A simple switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analog interface.
Two XLR/TRS combo jacks and one 3.5-mm stereo mini microphone jack are provided for input. The XLR/TRS combo jacks are switchable for line input, microphone input, or microphone input with 48 V phantom power.
A high degree of flexibility is provided for use with professional rigs and camera cages. Audio extension cables are supplied, allowing the location of the XLR adaptor on your rig to be adjusted as required.
Simply clip the XLR adaptor into the Multi Interface Shoe on a compatible camera for direct power and audio connections without the need for extra cables or batteries. Sony’s Multi Interface Shoe offers intelligent connectivity and control for a variety of accessories, providing maximum flexibility and mobility for α system shooting.
Mechanical noise suppression
An advanced shock and vibration suppressing design effectively minimizes low-frequency handling noise which can degrade audio quality. The option for direct on-camera mounting, without additional connecting cables, further reduces the risk of handling noise ruining your audio capture.
Comprehensive controllability at the recording stage can greatly facilitate the post processing workflow. Record level (AUTO/MANUAL), record level link (INPUT 1 – INPUT 2), attenuator, and low-cut filter (100/300 Hz) controls are provided.
