The Sony XLR-K3M Dual-Channel XLR Adapter Kit gives you everything you need to connect professional audio gear to the Sony Alpha a7R IV and other Sony cameras with the MI shoe to capture superb sound. This kit includes:
XLR-K3M XLR adapter
ECM-XM1 shotgun microphone
XLR Input. This adapter provides two pre-amplified XLR-1/4" mic/line inputs with support for +48v phantom power. It’s compatible with both powered and passive microphones.
Microphone Included. We include Sony’s popular ECM-XM1 microphone for capturing high-quality scratch audio. The XM1 is a monophonic microphone with a hybrid bidirectional/shotgun pickup pattern. This rental also includes a fur windscreen for wind-noise reduction.
Digital Sound. When you connect this adapter to a compatible camera’s Multi-Interface Shoe, you get a degradation-free digital audio signal.
Mechanical Noise Suppression. This kit was designed to suppress low-frequency and handling noise, so that your audio quality is top-shelf. You don’t need connecting cables when you use a compatible MI shoe, which means you don’t have to worry about mechanical mic and cable sounds being transmitted to the mic.
Intuitive Controls. This kit’s controls include record level (Auto/Manual), record level link (Input 1/Input 2), attenuator, and low-cut filter (100/300 Hz).
Compact Design. The XLR-K3M’s extremely compact and lightweight construction helps to add many features to your camera without also adding a lot of bulk.
Flexible Setup. This rental includes an MI Shoe extension cable, which lets you position the XLR-K3M to accommodate professional rigs and camera cages.
Is this kit universal?
This kit isn’t universal. It’s designed specifically for cameras equipped with Sony’s proprietary Multi-Interface Shoe. If you aren’t sure whether or not it’s compatible with your camera, please contact us.
