Just released: Saramonic XLR audio adapter kit, solid, great value.

As much as I liked Sony’s XLR_K1M kit, I much prefer this unit as it is supplied with a standard 1/8″ plug and will work with any camera’s standard 1/8″ (3.5mm) mic input. Decent pre-amps, descent microphone, logical interface, nothing flimsy about this unit, the only thing I noticed was the supplied wind muff would not fit. Too tight to slip over the foam, too loose to use without. Should be available any day now for $299 at Adorama, Ebay and BH.
Update: found one here on Ebay.
