Sescom LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N overview

  • 1Description

The LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N from Sescom is a problem solving cable for users of HDSLRs who are using a Zoom H4N or Zoom H1 as a secondary audio recording source. Many professional DSLR cameras have unbalanced stereo microphone level audio inputs on a mini TRS 3.5mm jack. The Samson Zoom H4N or H1 output line level audio signals. This cable provides the proper microphone levels and preserves the delicate connector contacts inside the camera, allowing users to go directly from the audio recorder into the camera.

The cable features a -25dB L Pad attenuator on both audio channels to reduce the prosumer line level output (-10dBV) to the cameras microphone input level. The cable is designed with the proper impedances to assure maximum voltage transfer and low noise operation. The cable shield is isolated on the camera end to prevent shield noise from directly coupling into the camera connector ground. All resistors values are 1% metal film to assure similar voltage attenuation between the stereo inputs and cable ends are labeled for proper connection.

Compatible with the following DSLR cameras:

  • EOS 1D Mark IV
  • EOS 5D Mark II
  • EOS 7D
  • EOS 550D Rebel T2i
  • EOS 60D

  • D3S,
  • D300S

  • K-7

Sescom LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N reviews

LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N - Line to Microphone Attenuation Cable for HDSLR Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS AWESOME WITH 60D I'm using this cable with a zoom H1N and Canon 60d and it works awesome. The rating above that says it doesn't work with the 60d is absolutely wrong. You do have to push the cable in a little harder than other connections but not by much. My settings are Auto Levels and VOLUME set to 90 on the Zoom and the 60d is set to manual audio with the levels adjusted to be about halfway inbetween the first and second tick (from the left). The audio recorded on the 60d is SOOOOOOOOO much clearer now than what we used to use. (Azden stereo shotgun mic directly into the 60d.) There has always been a slight to sometimes obnoxious buzz with the old setup but with this configuration it is all but gone!!! Great purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem Solver Since I received a DSLR for Christmas, I decided to check out video, It came as no surprise that the small internal microphone was not providing quality sound. I attached a standard 1/8 (3.5) cable to my Zoom audio recorder, and then to the input on the camera. The audio to the Zoom SD card was a tremendous improvement, but only marginally to the audio track of the video, Using Google, I learned I needed to use an attenuation cable, and the problem was completely solved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with GH4 Bought this as I thought I needed this to connect my H4N to my GH4.... It doesn't work... The audio is totally distorted and does NOT come in correctly at all no matter which end you use, it simply doesn't work. Haven't tried it with other actual DSLR's but the GH4's preamps cannot handle this cable. Nor can the G7.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly Made I took it on the road to shoot a doc and put it through normal use. The cable started cutting out in one channel after one day of use and eventually stopped working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves the line-to-mic problem After searching for some time looking for a solution (other than building a pad), I came across this little magic cable. I have wanted to use my mixer, which has a line level output, in conjunction with my Canon 60D which is at mic level. This cable solved the problem, providing about a 25db pad that brings levels down into a manageable range to allow for manual control. Once set, all levels can now be controlled at the mixer. A great little solution to achieve professional audio, although it is a bit pricey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The missing link! This product definitely does the job! I use this to go from my headphone/line out on my zoom h4n to my slr (60d) mic in. This is no ordinary 3.5 to 3.5 cable. If you would take a regular cable from the h4n to the slr, no matter how low the settings on the h4n and the slr, it will be too hot and will be totally clipped audio. This cable will give you a normal signal to the slr. The only downside is you can't minutes the signal at the same time, but they have a different cable with a splurged for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as advertised I tried hooking the H1 to my 60D with regular cable from Radio Shack without success. I tried several setting on both H1 and 60D but can't get the satisfactory level. Plug in this LN2MIC cable solved all the problems. I think it is necessary if you want to record directly from H1 to 60D. I read an earlier review that it doesn't fit the 60D microphone in terminal. Actually it does fit but you have to force it in a little bit for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I use this with my Zoom H1 and Canon T3i, it makes the headphone out on the H1 into a mic level that the T3i can handle. Its great cause I can record clean audio into my T3i and also record straight to the H1 as well. The only thing that is a little frustrating is that you have to put a lot of force into inserting the cable into both the H1 and the T3i. Over all it does the job I want it to do and the build quality is spot on, I like it a lot.
