Tascam TM-2X High-quality microphone for digital cameras
The Tascam TM-2X is a stereo X-Y pattern microphone for DSLR cameras – the ideal solution to combine high-quality audio with high-definition video. It allows users to utilize the same cardioid mics made popular on the DR-Series PCM recorders and record straight into their camera of choice.
The two high-quality mic capsules can be rotated horizontally by 180 degrees and accept high sound pressure levels up to 125 dB SPL. They are equipped with a switchable low-cut filter, a two-stage output level adjustment to adjust for varying cameras input levels, and all of this rests on a floating support structure to eliminate handling noise.
For additional noise isolation, the Tascam TM-2XX ships with an isolation arm to distance the mics from auto-focus noise caused by the camera lens, and place the mics closer to the audio source being recorded. For outdoor recording, an included fur windscreen can be attached.
The Tascam TM-2X and noise-isolation arm are mounted to the top of the camera via a standard shoe mount. The mics plug into the camera’s 3.5-mm mic input, and are powered from the standard plug-in power supplied by the DSLR camera.
