The AZDEN FMX-DSLR is a professional low-noise audio mixer for DSLR cameras and small camcorders. The FMX-DSLR is designed for the demanding needs of video professionals and DSLR users. This small, battery operated (4-AA) mixer can be attached to an ALZO Transformer bracket or it can be mounted between a camera and tripod. This kit includes 2900mah Ni-mh rechargeable batteries and charger with 12 volt auto charging plug. Even when you only have 1 microphone, this mixer provides the essential functions of audio headphone monitoring and volume level control that is commonly not easily controllable in a DSLR camera. When you connect your camera AV cord (audio) to the RCA inputs on the mixer, a front panel switch allows for monitoring either the audio mix in or the camera playback audio output. Customers frequently ask us where is the VU meter in the mixer. The VU meter is in your camera. If you properly set the audio levels in the camera, you should not have to worry about synchronizing the levels with the mixer. This mixer has huge head room and will only clip your audio if it is way to loud and distorted. The mixer includes switch selectable in camera AGC override. This feature can reduce camera hiss noise during very quite recording periods. The FMX-DSLR runs on 4 AA batteries and battery life is about 15 hours (phantom power off).
