      I own a Sony HD-FX1, and while it has manual audio input, it only comes with a 1/8" jack. This cable has served as a very simple solution to a potentially complex issue. In order to capture professional audio, XLR inputs are necessary. Instead of toting around a portable mixer, or buying an attachment for the camera with its own manual audio levels, I bought this cable, which has done the trick.

      purchased this cable to hook my external mic to get better sound quality. no luck. Im guessing due to the AGC feature inside the camera. hopefully an update to control this AGC -Auto Gain Control feature will be released soon. than i can utilize this [$] cable.

      Very pleased with product, but not too much to say. It does the job with very little noticeable degradation to quality through conversion. Plus, the cable is VERY thick compared to most mini cables which is a definite plus.

        Not much to say here, it works as advertised and delivers great sound. One thing i was very glad of from comprehensive is the thick cord and plastic cover they used. Many other xlr-mini cables are very thin and deliver an excessive amount of feedback and risk damage, but not this baby.

              The cable works, but the raised portion of the xlr jack that guides the cable into the microphine is slightly askew. It works, but it's not good and I am concerned it might damage my microphone. I would not recommend this cable.

                I use this cable to connect an external short shotgun mic to my Canon T3i for better sound quality while shooting video. The mic I use is a non-powered (no batteries) short shotgun microphone.

                The length is just right for connecting the mic to the hot shoe on the camera and staying out of the way while using a tripod. I would definitely recommend this inexpensive cable to connect better sound recording devices to your DSLR video camera.

                    This cable is pinned as expected.
                    XLR Pin 1 to 3.5 sleeve
                    XLR Pin 2 to 3.5 tip
                    XLR Pin 3 to 3.5 ring

                    I am using it to run a shotgun mic in to a Canon 60D. The Canon 60D only tracks the mic on left channel. The 60D has a little cross talk on the right channel.

                            Had to quickly/cheaply throw together a "run-n-gun" rig for a documentary type shoot. Didn't have the money for an XLR interface so we went with one of these. Did it's job perfectly, allowed us to run an on camera shotgun mic to the 1/8" input on the camera (Canon HV30). Audio was great and completely controllable with the cameras built in functions. Wish they had one though that was just a couple inches longer. When mounting the mic on the accessory arm it was just barely long enough to reach and I was worried it would tweak the input if the cable ever got snagged or pulled funny. All in all a great product.

                                    Comments about Comprehensive EXF Stereo Mini Male to XLR Female Cable - 1.5':

                                    I thought the 1' cable would be a little too short and was right so I'm glad I went with this longer 1.5' cable.
                                    The cable is a little stiff but the connections on it lock nice and tight and it now allows me to use XLR mics on my Canon Vixia HFS100 to bring out the best sound quality.

                                    works, but not good for Canon 7D

                                      purchased this cable to hook my external mic to get better sound quality. no luck. Im guessing due to the AGC feature inside the camera. hopefully an update to control this AGC -Auto Gain Control feature will be released soon. than i can utilize this [$] cable.

                                        Seems to work fine. Quality is good. I've used it now a couple of times. It's a cable!

                                              Comments about Comprehensive EXF Stereo Mini Male to XLR Female Cable - 1.5':

                                              I needed this cable as a connection between my Telex wireless mic receiver's 3.5mm (mini) output and the XLR inputs on my video cameras. Being only 1.5 feet long, it eliminates unnecessary rolled or dangling cable. Real pro product with real pro results.
                                              When you toss in the lifetime warranty, how can you go wrong? I'm pleased!
