HDSLRs have proven to be the poster child for the democratization of filmmaking. Cinema-like depth-of-field, a deep color palette, and an unheard of choice of lenses in its class are available at a fraction of the cost of digital cinema cameras. HDSLRs present a host of shortcomings as a professional filmmaking tool, most notably, a lack of audio capabilities. Imagine holding the best of both worlds in the palm of your hands. A compact adapter that docks to the base of the HDSLR, providing XLR inputs for professional mics, VU Meters to monitor signal strength, tactile control of fade and gain, and most importantly, an AGC disable feature that enables certain HDSLRs to record noise-free audio. The DXA-SLR PRO is about to prove that quality audio is both feasible and practical for HDSLRs.
