Asked by: Anonymous
XLR cables are not supplied with the unit, however we have found the Sound Devices cables work well, and ship as a pair. <a href= http://bhpho.to/1z7CxPL target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1z7CxPL</a> In addition on the product page, there are mini XLR to XLR cables in the accessory section under the Adapter category.

question

Is it possible to turn off those LEDs on the operation panel when shooting in dark area?
Asked by: Wei
There is no setting to turn off the lights unfortunately. If it is an issue on set you could cover it momentarily with a piece of gaff tape.

I have this microphone and want to power it using XLR phantom power. Can one mini-XLR to XLR cable power it already, or does it require both?
Asked by: Alan
The Rode Stereo VideoMic X includes a mini XLR cable which will be appropriate to pass phantom power to each capsule.

question

Would this be a good choice for the Panasonic GH4?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's a great stereo mic irrespective of the camera you use is with. I haven't used the GH4 so I can't comment on that part of it, but assuming you get a good pre-amp before you go into the camera, I'm sure you'd get an solid sound out of it.I hope that helps.Cheers,Zan

How is the audio quality compared to the Rode ...

How is the audio quality compared to the Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro especially when using not using an XLR cable?
Asked by: Jeff
The audio quality on both mics is very good. Both have a frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz. The Stereo VideoMic X has a higher dynamic range, higher maximum sound pressure level, higher sensitivity and better signal to noise ratio, as well as added onboard features to adjust the sound like a high-pass filter at both 75 and 150 Hz (the Pro has a 75 Hz high-pass filter) and a +6 dB high frequency boost. Audio quality of the VideoMic X is better when using the balanced XLR output than when using the unbalanced 3.5mm output. Both mics can be powered by a 9V battery but the VideoMic X has the advantage of using phantom power from a camera or recorder when using the XLR cable.

question

I would like to use the rode stereo mic x with my Canon 1Dx Mii and 5D Mark iv . Would I need to make any adjustments to the cameras audio settings ?
Asked by: Bedia Cigdem
Plug it in. Youll adjust the volume in the camera settings. The video mic does have some limited choices for attenuation as well. Once you plug it in your cameras external mic input the camera will know. But adjust the levels in the camera for sure.
