The Kopul LMT100 cable simply enables a microphone or mic-level device to be input into a high-impedance 3.5mm mini input found on DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices. It is 1.5' long and has a 3-pin XLR female connector on one end and a standard 3.5mm mini plug on the other. It is designed for use with mono microphones.

Matches low-impedance XLR output to high-impedance 1/8" (3.5mm) audio input
Ideal for plugging professional XLR microphones into DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices with a 1/8˝ microphone input
For use with battery-powered and dynamic microphones
Designed for a mono source, but will split the signal to both channels of a stereo device

    LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer (1.5') is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 142.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little piece of equipment I was looking for a piece of equipment that would allow me to plug my XLR microphones into several recording devices that take the mini plug. I ordered this one to give it a try. I am so impressed with it, I am ordering another for backup/second uses. This will plug into my Canon Vixia camcorder giving me professional sound. It plugs into my Olympus WM300 digital voice recorder and allows me to use a pro mic, either my Shure SM58 or SM57, AND it plugs into what I originally bought it for, my Canon 5dMkII giving me professional audio on the HDSLR camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solution Bought this along with a NTG-2 and it works great. Good build quality (surprisingly, it's pretty cheap), locks great and won't come off by accident. The only problem with this problem is not the problem itself, it's great, but using it straight from the mic to the camera is NOT an optimal solution. Your in-camera preamp produces a lot of noise, even though you have manual gain control such as I have on my 5D m3. It helps, but not a lot. I would reccoment buying something like a juicedlink rm202 or similar, then run XLR to XLR on the juicedlink and then 3.5mm to 3.5mm into your camera, that will produce the cleanest audio. That said, this is a great product, thus the five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great alternative I've used this several times with our Rode M3 and Olympus LS-10 recorder; our first attempt at dual system sound with our Canon 7d. It's a little noisy, just a little hum in very quiet environments, but compared to the alternative-- the LS-10 mic, or worse, the one on the 7d-- it's fantastic. Now, the LS-10 is almost as good as a recorder with XLR jacks. It's great to spend so little on something that updates older equipment. I wish I'd found the LMT100 sooner. The price is absolutely unbeatable for what it does. We'll be getting another to plug into the 7d-- as soon as firmware comes out that overrides the auto-gain. This transformer is great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Convenient with a catch To be fair, I'm sure this cable does it's job perfectly. I was just getting plenty of hiss from a AT8035 shotgun to my mic in jack (Canon 60D), although it sounded much better on my XHA1 mini plug mic jack. It is a clean way to do things. It was the fault of my 60D, not the cable or mic. The mic sounds much more clean and full with phantom power through XLR. Ultimately, I traded my setup in for a Videomic Pro where I can boost the output on the mic and reduce audio level on the camera, thus reducing the higher gain hiss. I wish the mini plug side of this cable were at a right angle. As is, it sticks straight off the side of your camera waiting to get bumped and destroy your mic input.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very useful piece of equipment I have quite a few pieces of equipment using XLR, a digital recorder and four XLR mics. I also have a Canon Vixia camcorder and recently purchased a Canon 5D MkII, both of which have a mini mic port. I wanted to be able to use my pro mics on this equipment. The LMT100 is the perfect interface, and it works pretty good. In fact, I also discovered I can use this and my Shure SM58 mic with my Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder. It may look a little silly with a big mic attached to this little device, but the LMT100 makes it possible, and the sound quality is pretty good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great small transformer. it's very well made and looks like its gonna last for long. I like the audio signal that comes through this tiny thing. would buy this again instead of the cheap ones out there. Hope this helps. Oh and very important is that the 3.5mm connector is small enough to fit any DSLR, which is my case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing Special I must say that this cable didn't stick out as great quality or anything. Personally, I must say that it is a bit to short for me...but you obviously know that since it is stated right in the description (1 1/2 feet). The cable quality is just enough to make it work, none the less when I turn the gain up on my microphone the distortion is more evident. (I used the Rode NTG-2). If you are looking for a temporary solution, or you are not a professional, than I would recommend this cable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! I'm using this for my Canon 7D to record from a shotgun mic when I shoot video. The cable works great. It saved me from spending $400 on a Beachtec unit. If I could change one thing on this cable it would be to replace the standard mini jack connector with a low-profile angled version.
