      The previous reviewer who didn't like it may not have understood how it works. In essence, it's an attenuator for powered mics to drop the signal from the louder mic to the level of the quieter mic, with the overall level recorded to tape set by the camcorder. Unlike a bulkier, heavier mixer (e.g. Azden FMX-20), it only attenuates; it does not amplify. The now-equalized signal from one mic is sent to the R channel, and from the other to the L channel. A third input is available, that sends that mic's signal to both channels. Also, it does not pass dc plug-in power from camcorders (e.g. Sony) to the mics, so the mics have to be separately powered. I typically use mine to send the signal from a Sennheiser MKE300 shotgun to one channel, and from either a (powered) lavalier or a (powered) rf mic to the other, with the relative levels of the two mics set by the Azden and the overall level set by the camcorder. It's great for this application.

      I'm very surprised that none of the other reviewers have mentioned the high-pitched hum that this unit creates. I have been using it to film a reality show pilot with a Sony HDR series camera and after going back over some of the footage I noticed this hum in all of it. So I took the took the camera out and listened more closely with the headphones on and sure enough it was there. I've tested it several times without the mixer connected and with the mixer connected and it seems clear that the mixer is adding the high-pitched hum. Otherwise it would be a great, useful, product at an amazing price. Too bad.

      Great for Price, Not Best Quality

      Comments about Azden CAM-3 3-Channel Mic Mixer:

      It has no indication that it is on or working unless you have headphones on and are listening which I didn't like. However, for the price, it can't be beat. Not for pros, but great for newbies starting out.

              Nothing technical about this small device. Plug the mic receivers into the ports, plug the included cord to the camera and mixer and it's working. No batteries. A 6-year old could work this. So far the sound is like it should sound. I'm glad I found this product.

                I bought this after I tried a friend's. It really help with the Azden Wireless mic system I purchased along with it. I use it for taping wedding, etc. I hook into the sound board they use to pick up any thing going thru it. I use the wireless mic for the groom since usually he and the bride do not have a mic. I can control turning off the wireless and sound board as needed. The slides are a little sensitive. Do not expect a professional system, but for the cost and for most everyone looking for a good way to control sound, it is good.

                    It seems to work just like it's supposed to. Another thing I am trying with it is using it as an interface between my Yamaha microphone mixer and my camcorder. I get a tiny hum when I do that but not nearly as much as when I attach my mixer directly to the camera.

                      I plugged this in right away and made a recording. I really had sort of low expectations for it because of the cost, but, turns out, it works great with no sound loss or distortion. For my industrial/educational videos it will be just fine.

                      This is a great device when you require more than one external mic simultaneously. Would have given it 4 stars, but it has one drawback: they only provide flimsy attachments to secure it to the camera.

                          No need a DC or AC to work.

                          Fix with velcro in the back of LED sungun.

                            Needed a mixer for multiple audio devices (all powered) fed to camera's single ext. mic jack. Was a little skeptical at first due to cheap price and mixed reviews. It works well for my application using it for live event web-casts. Now I'm able to connect 2 mics (wireless lav & shotgun) AND MP3 player (for background music) to my camera easily. Even allows me to fade music in/out as needed. I couldn't be more satisfied. 1 input is stereo; other 2 are mono L and R. I used a miniplug Y-cable (2 stereo males to 1 stereo female) to force mono inputs to act as 2nd stereo input.

                            It works fine, but the sound comes out quite low, so you'll need some sort of amplification either before or after it.

                              Comments about Azden CAM-3 3-Channel Mic Mixer:

                              The previous reviewer who didn't like it may not have understood how it works. In essence, it's an attenuator for powered mics to drop the signal from the louder mic to the level of the quieter mic, with the overall level recorded to tape set by the camcorder. Unlike a bulkier, heavier mixer (e.g. Azden FMX-20), it only attenuates; it does not amplify. The now-equalized signal from one mic is sent to the R channel, and from the other to the L channel. A third input is available, that sends that mic's signal to both channels. Also, it does not pass dc plug-in power from camcorders (e.g. Sony) to the mics, so the mics have to be separately powered. I typically use mine to send the signal from a Sennheiser MKE300 shotgun to one channel, and from either a (powered) lavalier or a (powered) rf mic to the other, with the relative levels of the two mics set by the Azden and the overall level set by the camcorder. It's great for this application.

                                Product works great with my wireless mics and shotgun mic.
                                Being able to control both of the levels on each makes a huge difference.
                                Finding some place to attatch it on my cam was the only down side.
