    Sony XLR-K2M reviews

    XLR-K2M XLR Adapter Kit with Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish It Wasn't A Kit This item (the XLR breakout box) itself is a fantastic way to take advantage of the FS7's extra 2 Channels of audio - for a total of four. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the mic included in the kit. I found it a wonderful antenna for RF babble and radio. So unfortunate, because the unit itself functions very well. Be prepared to put the mic away in the case and forget about it. I will buy a better shotgun to use with this - and be careful about the diameter of the mic you buy/rent... the circumference of the Sony XLR-K2M mic holder is non-standard.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect It's so simple to use. Just attach it. It keeps the cords tidy and you can avoid cables going into your camera body. Sounds quality is excellent. Plenty of adjustments for manual levels, phantom power. I love it, and there is no real competition that I know of. I do have three small complaints. I wish it had a headphone jack. You can use the camera jack on the a7 but the a6300 does not have one. I wish it had a place to mount a wireless receiver. I used wire ties. Using a cage would be a better solution to avoid too much weight on the hotshoe. It draws power from the camera battery, which is convenient, but the A7 battery life is poor to begin with and this sucks it even faster.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost the perfect Fs7 companion. This Unit accesses the 3rd and 4th audio channels in the Fs7. Note that the 3rd and 4th channels cannot be monotered in the viewfinder. The controls are well laid out, and the unit pops on and off the camera easily. Reading other reviews, I was happy to see that the unit was not as large as I had feared. It does, however, stick up higher than it has to. It could be made to have a lower profile. There is also a mic holder which is useless for the Fs7, and is not easily removed, and makes the unity more unwieldy. The included mic and overlarge case are useless to me, and I imagine most Fs7 users. It would be much better to not have to buy the whole kit..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEST DOCU-RUN & GUN AUDIO TOOL for A7S, FS5, FS7 After years of fighting wind & riding levels for broadcast docs this arrives. The days of spending hours fixing or dumping bad audio are over. Painful to pay at first but after using the low cut filters on 2 lavs I was amazed. I accidentally shot for a while in AUTO and cringed it would be full of hiss etc. Nope. 30mph in a boat w no wind noise....perfect. Great audio w little effort if you keep the hot shoe connections CLEAN! Once you find your groove with this unit you will sing it's praises. If you are needing audio in the field with little to no issues... buy this. The 4 stars are because the shotgun mic might as well be a stir stick and the plastic tightening ring should be metal. It gets really tight or loose w temp changes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever -- XLR inputs through hotshoe! Ingenious design gives me XLR on my Sony A7s. So nice not to have to use H4N external recorder. The mic is good, but doesn't fit snugly in the holder. I wonder if that's by design so it doesn't break if there is any kind of pressure. My only concern is the thing doesn't appear to be exactly a heavy duty build quality, so I knock off one star for that. So glad I'm using the Sony system. They really have thought through the still photo/video convergeance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have!!! If you are serious about your audio and don't want to mess with external recorders, this is a must have for supported Sony cameras!! I use it on my a7s and ax100.. And soon my a6300. When connected the xlr-k2m takes control over the internal audio controls of the camera and gives you manual control of audio.. You can also select auto as well.. Very clean audio! Plastic.. But the unit feels solid.. I used to use the xlr box mounted under the camera.. But that interferred with the operation of my larger lenses.. This works as advertised and i am very glad i have it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution Like many people out there I've been using a variety of Sony cameras to shoot events and corporate jobs. Although I do have an FS7 there many times but it just makes more sense to use an A7SII. To get any kind of workable audio I've either had to use a dual system or send audio into the 3.5 mm Jack which is not ideal. this also has limited me to using one channel of audio if I'm going internal. Enter the xlr-ktm. it is not possible for me to mix to mics, which is especially great for interviews what I want to use a lav and a shotgun. What I really like about the solution is it eliminates me from having to have a big rig just to get audio into my camera. It seems to work very well and I have encountered any of the issues anybody else has talked about here. This product is also really great to use with the FS7 as it allows me to record to a third and fourth channel on the camera. It's pretty awesome being able to have that kind of capability especially at an event where I often have many people wearing mics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It This XLR adapter is absolutely essential when shooting with Sony Alpha cameras. I bought this for use with my Sony a7s II. There isn't much to it really. You mount it on the hotshoe and you now have two XLR inputs which get recorded directly in camera. You can also monitor the inputs directly by plugging your headphones into your Sony alpha camera headphone jack. The hard manual buttons on this adapter make it a real winner. No buzzing through menus while you're shooting to try and change audio levels. Just turn the button. It also has an auto-gain feature which works okay. It also include 48V phantom which is a super helpful. Low pass filters on it as well. Perfect for a two channel audio setup. The sound from the shotgun mic is decent. It's super sensitive to wind, even with the dead kitten on it. I used this on a documentary shoot and on the second XLR input, I plugged a Sennheiser AVX receiver. This was a perfect setup. It works so great with the AVX lavalier system. Perfect for documentary setups where you are in run and gun situations and you want to keep your rig light. It also makes the workflow so much easier having the audio tracks already embedded in the video file. I did find one of the options a little confusing. There is a channel recording selection button on the adapter. The options are CH1/CH2 or CH1. I figured that Ch1/Ch2 option would record both XLR inputs. That is not the case. The Ch1/Ch2 option means that the adapter will record XLR Input 1 to both Ch1 and Ch2. If you want to get both XLR inputs recorded, you'll need to select the CH1 option. Bit odd but you'll get used to it.
