Product Description

Product Ref:tm2x

The TM-2X is a stereo X-Y pattern microphone for DSLR cameras - the ideal solution to combine high-quality audio with high-definition video. It allows users to utilize the same cardioid mics made popular on the DR-Series PCM recorders and record straight into their camera of choice.

The two high-quality mic capsules can be rotated horizontally by 180 degrees and accept high sound pressure levels up to 125 dB SPL. They are equipped with a switchable low-cut filter, a two-stage output level adjustment to adjust for varying cameras input levels, and all of this rests on a floating support structure to eliminate handling noise. For additional noise isolation, the TM-2X ships with an isolation arm to distance the mics from auto-focus noise caused by the camera lens, and place the mics closer to the audio source being recorded. For outdoor recording, an included fur windscreen can be attached. The TM-2X and noise-isolation arm are mounted to the top of the camera via a standard shoe mount. The mics plug into the camera's 3.5-mm mic input, and are powered from the standard plug-in power supplied by the DSLR camera.
