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.

The $29 XLR hack for the Panasonic Lumix GH4 (also works with Canon, Nikon, Sony)

this video was shot with the Sony A7r and the kit lens in 1080/24p

The Panasonic GH4 is currently the most powerful video tool you can get in a hybrid camera. With crazy high bit rates for HD shooters, 4k recording to internal cards pretty much destroys the competition. But we have one problem: No XLR input unless we spend another 1600 bucks for the interface brick. Check out the video for the $29.99 solution and get all the links to the products shown in the video after the break
