Azden CAM-3 overview

  • 1Description

The Azden CAM-3 is a three-channel microphone mixer primarily used with the 3.5mm audio input of cameras and other devices. It allows you to mix the signal of three different sources. Two mono 3.5mm inputs are provided, as is one stereo 3.5mm input. Control the mix of these signals via the three faders, and then send sound along via the 3.5mm output. The device is passive, so it requires no power to operate. It's lightweight at 2.6 oz and includes both a belt clip and a stereo 3.5mm cable for the output.

Easily attaches to camera

    Azden CAM-3 reviews

    CAM-3 3-Channel Mic Mixer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Product Idea, Bad Sound I'm very surprised that none of the other reviewers have mentioned the high-pitched hum that this unit creates. I have been using it to film a reality show pilot with a Sony HDR series camera and after going back over some of the footage I noticed this hum in all of it. So I took the took the camera out and listened more closely with the headphones on and sure enough it was there. I've tested it several times without the mixer connected and with the mixer connected and it seems clear that the mixer is adding the high-pitched hum. Otherwise it would be a great, useful, product at an amazing price. Too bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what was needed Needed a mixer for multiple audio devices (all powered) fed to camera's single ext. mic jack. Was a little skeptical at first due to cheap price and mixed reviews. It works well for my application using it for live event web-casts. Now I'm able to connect 2 mics (wireless lav & shotgun) AND MP3 player (for background music) to my camera easily. Even allows me to fade music in/out as needed. I couldn't be more satisfied. 1 input is stereo; other 2 are mono L and R. I used a miniplug Y-cable (2 stereo males to 1 stereo female) to force mono inputs to act as 2nd stereo input.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The previous reviewer who didn't like it may not have understood how it works. In essence, it's an attenuator for powered mics to drop the signal from the louder mic to the level of the quieter mic, with the overall level recorded to tape set by the camcorder. Unlike a bulkier, heavier mixer (e.g. Azden FMX-20), it only attenuates; it does not amplify. The now-equalized signal from one mic is sent to the R channel, and from the other to the L channel. A third input is available, that sends that mic's signal to both channels. Also, it does not pass dc plug-in power from camcorders (e.g. Sony) to the mics, so the mics have to be separately powered. I typically use mine to send the signal from a Sennheiser MKE300 shotgun to one channel, and from either a (powered) lavalier or a (powered) rf mic to the other, with the relative levels of the two mics set by the Azden and the overall level set by the camcorder. It's great for this application.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great To Control Sound I bought this after I tried a friend's. It really help with the Azden Wireless mic system I purchased along with it. I use it for taping wedding, etc. I hook into the sound board they use to pick up any thing going thru it. I use the wireless mic for the groom since usually he and the bride do not have a mic. I can control turning off the wireless and sound board as needed. The slides are a little sensitive. Do not expect a professional system, but for the cost and for most everyone looking for a good way to control sound, it is good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixer Exceeds Expectations I plugged this in right away and made a recording. I really had sort of low expectations for it because of the cost, but, turns out, it works great with no sound loss or distortion. For my industrial/educational videos it will be just fine.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Idea, But Not For My System Nice idea, but it simply does not work with my video camera. The mixer attenuates all mic signals to the point they disappear. I have put this mixer to use, but in controlling high-level inputs into my camera. Can't use it for intended purpos of mixing microphones

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice compact little unit It seems to work just like it's supposed to. Another thing I am trying with it is using it as an interface between my Yamaha microphone mixer and my camcorder. I get a tiny hum when I do that but not nearly as much as when I attach my mixer directly to the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SIMPLE to use Nothing technical about this small device. Plug the mic receivers into the ports, plug the included cord to the camera and mixer and it's working. No batteries. A 6-year old could work this. So far the sound is like it should sound. I'm glad I found this product.
