Capture high-quality, low-noise recordings from your favorite XLR microphone directly to your Canon camera with the TASCAM CA-XLR2d-C XLR Microphone Adapter Kit for Cameras. This version includes an accessory shoe that takes advantage of Canon's multi-accessory shoe to provide a cable-free digital audio connection to the camera—avoiding any deterioration in sound quality and eliminating the work of synchronizing images and sound in postproduction.

The accessory shoe also allows the camera to supply the adapter with power for the analog-to-digital converter and the 48V phantom power needed for condenser microphones. Two AA batteries will also power the unit, and the 3.5mm output jack will connect to just about any camera's 3.5mm audio input, using the supplied cable; meaning the CA-XLR2d-C can work as an analog audio adapter with a wide variety of mirrorless/DSLR cameras. The audio output can also serve as a headphone jack for real-time monitoring in the field.

Select the Best Microphone for Your Application
Choose the appropriate microphone or input that matches your application. From a single shotgun mic for interviews or dialog to dual dynamic or condenser mics for stereo imaging or the entire audio mix fed from the master mixer, using the line-level capability, the CA-XLR2d-C supports a wide variety of shooting applications.
HDDA Mic Preamplifier for High Sound Quality with Low Noise & Wide Dynamic Range
The CA-XLR2d-C is equipped with a high-definition discrete-architecture microphone preamplifier that can process anything from room tone to explosions, making it well suited to a wide range of sets and environments. Each input supports microphone/line-level switching and a +48V phantom power supply. The CA-XLR2d-C allows input of dynamic microphones, condenser microphones, and line-level audio signals from a mixer.
Designed for a High Degree of Freedom
A cold shoe on the top panel expands setting flexibility. The shockmount mechanism is vibration and noise resistant and allows you to connect various microphones. With two combo XLR-1/4" input connectors and one 3.5mm stereo mini microphone input jack, the CA-XLR2d-C has the flexibility to adapt to the gear necessary for the job and work in a wide variety of shooting scenarios. A 3.5mm output terminal with headphone mode provides latency-free direct monitoring or analog camera connection.
Built-In Processing with User-Friendly Control for Clean and Clear Recordings
Internal processing options such as Auto Level, a Low-Cut Filter, and a Limiter are on board, all using convenient switches. The 1+2 LINK function allows you to adjust the L/R volume simultaneously when recording in stereo. The unit supports 16/24-bit rates and 48/96 kHz sampling rates.
Canon Digital Interface Kit
TASCAM has collaborated with Canon to create an in-camera recording solution for XLR mics using the multi-accessory shoe connection. This provides a cable-free digital audio transmission directly into the camera along with a buss power supply from the camera to create an efficient and highly mobile solution. 

Digital product compatibility includes:

  • Canon cameras: EOS R3, EOS R5 C, EOS R7, and XF605 are supported with powering from the camera. For the EOS R10, the audio connection is supported, but from-camera powering is not.

For analog setups, use the included 2 x AA battery box, cold shoe mount, and adapter cable, which connects the CA-XLR2d's 3.5mm output to a camera's 3.5mm mic input jack. This allows the CA-XLR2d-C to work as an analog audio adapter and deliver high-quality sound from XLR mics to a wide range of existing camera users.

Analog product compatibility includes:

  • Nikon mirrorless cameras:  Z 9, Z 7II, Z 6II, Z 7, Z 6, Z 5, Z fc, and Z 50
  • Nikon digital SLR cameras: D6, D780, D850, D7500, and D500
  • Numerous mirrorless/DSLR cameras with shoe mounts and 3.5mm external audio input jacks

When using it with the battery adapter and 3.5mm without connecting to the shoe how do you get the adapter to power up? There is no power switch and appears to be controlled by the shoe.

Is there a type of cable/adapter needed to connect a Sennheiser lav kit to the XLRs? No luck with a 1/8" to XLR kopul adapter.
Asked by: Jeyhoun
Sennheiser camera-mount receivers typically come with a 3.5mm to XLR output cable. If no level is being received by the TASCAM CA-XLR2d-C, make sure its inputs are set to mic level and the preamp gain is set appropriately.
