Will this mic work with in the hot shoe of the Panasonic XLR1 while on the S1H?
Asked by: jacob
This mic can be affixed to the Panasonic XLR1 audio adapter, but it would have to be set to mono shotgun mode and would require a Kopul A-XMMF 3.5mm TRS Female to XLR Male Adapter, BH #KOAXMMF to connect to one of the XLR inputs. A good option that would connect directly to the XLR input is the Azden SGM-250CX Short Shotgun Microphone (Shockmount, Phantom Only), BH #AZSGM250CX

question

Does this mic work with Lumix GX85? I ask because the gx85 does not have a mic jack. So this mic would be my only option to have better sound.
Asked by: Matthew
Since there is no audio input on the GX85, there is no way to connect a mic directly to the camera. However, you could record the audio using a separate recorder, like one by Tascam or Zoom, which would provide you with high-quality audio. You would sync the audio and video in post production. Both the shotgun mic and recorder can be mounted directly on the camera using a Vello V-Rig bracket like B&H # VECB415, which provides three additional shoe mounts. If needed, the third shoe mount can be used for an additional device like a light or perhaps to connect a wireless receiver for a lavalier or handheld mic.
