        Comments about Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit:

        I use this XLR accesory mounted on my Sony NEX-VG 30. I use this when I'm on the road shooting run and gun segments with my food critic father. The unit itself works fine except the plastic cover over the gain dial broke the 3rd day as I accidently bumped the side (my fault no real gripe hear). Be weary though, as this product comes with a flimsy metal "step/riser" mount adapter that slides onto my NEX-VG cold shoe (connections are on Hot shoe for transmitted data, cold shoe mounts the unit). Disaste strikes. I was in the field and the entire metal riser part broke off! It is held together really ackwardly with tiny screws and tiny parts. Be aware, if this happens to you in the field you're pretty much out of luck! Make sure you carry tons of gaffers tape with you when you have this unit.

          Comments about Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit:

          So, I got this not knowing anything but what I read in reviews about it. I took it out and plugged it in my SONY A99, plugged in a Wireless LAV & a wired Mic and did some testing. I was impressed that this device although expensive works perfectly. I would plug & unplug it into the hot shoe switch for it & a camera FLASH with not one error or problem. The editor loved that all my audio was on camera since the footage I shot needed to be up that day & they didn't have to sync like he had to with the people using other DSLR cameras.

          Comments about Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit:

          I use the adaptor with my Sony VG-30 video camera and it does a flawless job with XLR inputs and having control over the audio in a semi-pro camera. I use it with lav mics and hand-held mics. I haven't really used the shotgun that comes with it, but I'm sure it performs as advertised. Obviously a lot of money for an adaptor, but again, great performance.

            Comments about Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit:

            I brought the Sony A99 and needed the XLR inputs as I film a lot of corporate interviews and productions -the kit is great and works very well with both my radio mics and shotguns fed into both channels.its really easy to set up and monitor with the headphones, although I haven't found method of changing the headphones volume, maybe Sony will do something about this in a firmware upgrade ?make sure you get some kind of bracket for attaching onto the camera - as you can see from the photos mine was just hanging from the cables, not good- So overall 9/10 shame its such an expensive piece of kit for what it ischeers bob
