    Panasonic DMW-XLR1 reviews

    DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for GH5 This is a must have accessory for the GH5 if you do a lot of audio recording, especially interviews or situations with multiple microphones. It functions like the audio input selection on a traditional camcorder. The only draw back is that it has to be used on the GH5. Panasonic should have made a tether cable so it could be moved to another mount, or an audio out jack to use on the input of a GH4. Note, not all a audio settings are available with this unit as of 6-29-17. The highest frequency and bit rate is with .mov files, not mpeg. Still a great unit, relatively quiet, and is so much better than plugging a mic into the camera body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the XLR Adapter you are looking for. Does exactly what I need. Has all the onboard functions needed for recording. Sound is excellent with a MK-416 plugged directly in. Unit is light. No complaints. No need to use my low noise preamps any more. Only (very slight) issue I have has more to do with physics than it does with Panasonic. You really can't put the adapter and mic on top of the camera when using it on a gimbal. Was hoping that I could somehow balance it with an RF receiver instead of the shotgun mic, but it was just too top heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO WORTH THE INVESTMENT Ok, this is not going to compete with higher end DAR... but it is on par with most of the typical DAR that you see on the market for DSLR shooting, it sounds WAY better than the DSLR can record, and is easily useable for main audio in a great variety of projects. �I switched seamlessly over to using this instead of recording to my Zoom H6 without any noticeable degradation in the audio quality. �I imagine there are SOME limitations, for example a reduced dynamic range... �but lets face it, this product is one of convenience. �For a single shooter, this means less wires, better audio direct to camera, and reasonable quality recording for the great majority of your smaller projects. � �I would buy this again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product to get two XLR inputs on your GH5 I have only used this twice so far, but I really like it. I am able to plug in two wireless receivers and use lav microphones for my actors. I have been able to eliminate a boom mounted microphone when 2 or less actors are in a scene and the environmental noise is acceptable. I LOVE the ALC control as I can set the lav microphones pretty hot and the ALC eliminates any digital peaking from the signal. I really have gotten great audio this way. In fact, it is often better audio than I get from an amateur boom operator who does not know how get levels right or the does not know script well enough to get the mic on the proper actor at the proper time. Pros: Great audio and excellent Automatic Level Control (ALC). Makes the GH5 into an audio powerhouse. Eliminates the need for external recorder and syncing in post. Cons: Expensive for what it is, but still worth it. Wish they had a cable to allow of-camera mounting. Mount is made of plastic and not as tight as I would like. I am hoping it holds up to heavy use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as it should Does all it says it should, and does it easily. Audio sounds clean, and phantom power works fine. I don't notice any serious drain on camera battery. Solid enough that I've run a SmallHD Focus on the top during a shoot and it felt solid (though a bit awkward). This saved my bacon on a shoot once where the 1/8" audio solution failed. Just popped this on, went to shotgun mic and moved on. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again....... First i bought the Panasonic DMW-MS2 shotgun microphone. But in my experience to much background noise with this.If you are serious when concerning audio, buy this microphone adapter instead and get very good and clean sound with a good microphone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cool but doesn't lock down tight enough This is a AWESOME little gadget but it doesn't lock down tight enough to the hot shot to prevent slipping when you have a mic on it. It's not going to fall off but it doesn't feel completely stable. Otherwise, really cool addition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know how I lived without it I don't know how I lived without this. Shot Dual system sound with a H4n and had to sync everything. No more, sound is excellent and the controls panel is extensive. Clients very happy!
