Tascam TM-2X overview

  • 1Description

The TM-2X Stereo XY Condenser DSLR Microphone from Tascam is designed to record stereo audio directly to your DSLR camera's microphone input. It can be mounted directly on your camera's hot shoe mount and is capable of being swiveled 180-degrees. The TM-2X has two switchable sensitivities, allowing it to work with a range of cameras. As it is powered by plug-in power from your camera, it requires no external batteries for operation.

A low-cut filter at 130Hz allows you to eliminate low-frequency rumble while the included noise isolation arm helps prevent the mic from picking up mechanical noise from your DSLR. For outdoor filming, a fur windscreen is included to help reduce wind noise. The TM-2X can handle SPL up to 120dB, allowing it to be used on a variety of sources.

  • Can be mounted directly to the camera accessory shoe and swiveled by 180 degrees to capture sound sources in front or behind the user
  • Tripod attachment screw-hole (1/4-inch) allows for optional tripod to place the microphone apart from the camera
  • XY orientation for stereo definition and minimal phase differences
  • Accepts sound pressure levels up to 125 dB SPL
  • Switchable input sensitivity for functionality with most camera models
  • Switchable low-cut filter to minimize unwanted low-frequency noise
  • Operates with plug-in power from your camera - no battery required
  • Included noise isolation arm reduces possible noise being recorded from the camera's lens or stabilizer mechanisms
  • Included fur windscreen reduces wind and environmental noise

    Tascam TM-2X reviews

    TM-2X Stereo XY Condenser DSLR Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from slick stereo setup IF...... This a great setup for great quality audio. These are configured as a 90 stereo pair, this is not a shotgun. They work very well for recording a band or for making railroad videos, which is what I use them for, they have great separation. These mic's require dc power from your camera's 1/8 Microphone IN jack. My Canon 60D provides this power, and because of this my video rig can be lighter, the microphones do not contain batteries. Those are just a couple of simple things to consider, if you're OK with these, I would highly recommend this stereo microphone setup.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Mic for HDSLR's This mic worked very well with my 5D Mark III the audio was clean. What I did was run it through my bechtech mixer so I wouldn't get the hum from the preamps in the DSLR. The overall build of the mic is good accept the cold shoe mount, do not over tighten it will break very easily. I had to take the cold shoe mount of the extension arm that comes with the mic and install that one on the Mic now it works perfectly. Just be careful when you tighten it. Other then that good mic I think the price should be $- bucks for what you get. Wish it what made out of metal like the Rode Stereo VideoMic X.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great stereo microphone for DSLRs Very happy with this stereo microphone, had it for 10 days and so far, have used it at a dance performance (playback music from a PA system) and a choir concert (50-100 live singers with piano and djembe accompaniment). The Tascam has a very clear, pleasing & clean sound with good frequency range. It sounds way better than the built in stereo mic of my Nikon D7100. Due to the noise isolation arm, the noise from the autofocus motor of my standard zoom (Nikkor 16-85mm VR)is very much diminished, again compared to the built in mic. One thing I am not so happy with is the build quality of the noise isolation arm. Although the arm itself feels quite sturdy, I wish that both hot shoe mounts, especially the one that mounts on to the camera hot shoe, were made of metal. The plastic mounts look and feel very fragile. Handle with care!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tascam TM-2X - Good quality music and voice recording I used the TM-2X to record the Principal Cellist of the Colorado Symphony in a video using my Canon 70D. The sound quality from my previews of the video shoot was very good, better than I expected actually. I used the extension arm to move the mics forward and didn't hear any dicernable auto focus noise from my Canon 18-155 lens. The extension arm is a bit flimsy as other reviewers have noted, but it works fine if you install the mic first before mounting the arm to your hot shoe, and don't lift the camera by the arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality for the Price! BLUF: For the price, this microphone shocked me with it's high quality audio.Cons:1. Noise isolation arm is low quality plastic. I can foresee the arm breaking with a small amount of force.2. Adds significant volume to the size of the camera.3. When using the noise isolation arm, the microphone still picks up the sound of the camera's autofocus motor (although with a much lower dB than the internal microphone).Pros:1. Phenomenal audio quality.2. Comes with a noise isolation arm.3. Comes with a nice quality fur windscreen.4. No batteries or external power required.5. Fairly low price for the audio quality and included accessories.Recommendation:If you are searching for a great quality external microphone for your dSLR, you can't go wrong with this one.Equipment used when testing:1. Nikon D8102. Lexar 64GB Professional 2000x UHS-II SDXC Memory Card3. AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from doesnt require phantom power but it does require plugin power (big difference) Plugin power is delivered from most devices, but there are a few exceptions. Basically old SLR's and some Canon video models - like the XA series - but please check. Basically just google if another non powered microphone works on you device - like the Videomic go. I looked it up and the Panasonic GH2 and the GH3 have a powered output.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent camcorder mic I am very happy with how well this microphone works with my JVC GZ-E505. It isolates handling noise very well. The pivoting head allows the user to significanty change the fore/aft sound balance - it is an excellent close interview mic. The cord retention slots are a very thoughtful feature. It weighs very little - I can't feel the difference in handling after it is installed. I left the extension arm in the box - I don't need it for my camcorder.JVC/TM-2X specific comments: So far, I've left the camcorder's mic level at 0, the K2 setting at Off (It sounds more neutral that way to me), and the mic sensitivity level to H for normal level sounds - the L setting works well for very loud environments without diving into the camera menu. A pair of Etymotic Er6i headphones with earmolds have worked well as in-ear-monitors. I haven't compared it to any other microphones - yet - but I still plan on getting a Que Audio mini-shotgun mic soon for more targeted recording.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and True When I went searching for a microphone to use on my Nikon D5200, I looked at all options everything from Nikon's Mic to Rode and beyond. When I came across the TM-2X Stereo XY Condenser DSLR Microphone by Tascam, I remembered how much I liked the the performance of my Tascam DR-40 and how reliable there product line has been. All of that aside the fact that B&H beat out others prices on this item just helped me seal the deal. It was easy putting in an order with B&H and the customer service was fantastic when I had questions. OH! back to the performance of the TM-2X Stereo Mic with my Nikon camera is fantastic better then I could have imagined. Once you learn how to set your audio levels where you need them to be in your camera, its all good for going to post production editing. The audio sounds great. I like this microphone a lot.
