Product Highlights
  • DSLR Cable for Zoom H4N and Zoom H1
  • 3.5mm Connectors
  • 25dB L Pad Attenuator
  • 6' (1.83m)

The LN2MIC-ZMH4N-6 from Sescom is a problem solving cable for users of HDSLRs who are using a Zoom H4N or Zoom H1 as a secondary audio recording source. Many professional DSLR cameras have unbalanced stereo microphone level audio inputs on a mini TRS 3.5mm jack. The Samson Zoom H4N or H1 output line level audio signals. This cable provides the proper microphone levels and preserves the delicate connector contacts inside the camera, allowing users to go directly from the audio recorder into the camera.

The cable features a -25dB L Pad attenuator on both audio channels to reduce the prosumer line level output (-10dBV) to the camera's microphone input level. The cable is designed with the proper impedances to assure maximum voltage transfer and low noise operation. The cable shield is isolated on the camera end to prevent shield noise from directly coupling into the camera connector ground. All resistors values are 1% metal film to assure similar voltage attenuation between the stereo inputs, and cable ends are labeled for proper connection.

Canon:
  • EOS 1D Mark IV
  • EOS 5D Mark II

    Looks a little flimsy, but great so far

    Comments about Sescom LN2MIC-ZMH4N-6 - Line to Microphone Attenuation Cable for HDSLR Cameras:

    It doesn't look very substantial, but that seems to be par for the course for these cables. Had to look a while to find this longer cable so I can have a more versatile setup--I don't like mounting the audio player right on top of the camera, and appreciate the flexibility that comes with this cable's length. Haven't used it too much, but seems to work great so far.

    Comments about Sescom LN2MIC-ZMH4N-6 - Line to Microphone Attenuation Cable for HDSLR Cameras:

    I have purchased two of these cables. The audio quality is fine and attenuation is a useful range, but the build is mediocre at best. It's not a solid cable, it's assemble with parts and they come apart easily. My first cable worked fine until I yanked it too hard one day, the second had a short when it arrived, ruining a client shoot.

    The company is hard to reach, so I had to try and fix it myself.

    I use this with my GH2 and the D100 Mk II. It works great and it has a good workable length.

        Quality construction.
        Works as stated.
        Must have for DSLR users with Zoom attached or near field.
        The 6' version will hang around your camera controls, best to coil it away from the camera or use it off camera.
