Sescom LN2MIC-ZMGH-MON 3.5mm Line to 2.5mm Mic Cable with 3.5mm Headphone Monitoring Jack and 25dB Attenuator Pad and for Zoom H4N
Sescom's specialty cable solves interface problems with todays Panasonic DSLR cameras when integrating a Zoom H4 or similar audio recorder. The Panasonic Lumix GH2 and Lumix GH1 DSLR cameras utilize an unbalanced stereo mic level audio input on a mini TRS 2.5mm jack. Manufacturers do this to save valuable space in the camera interface. With the age of professional pocket recorders that can produce very high quality sound, such as the the Sony PCMD50 or a Samson Zoom H4N, came devices that output different line level audio signals. To avoid using klunky XLR type attenuators that can produce heavy strain on the cameras mic input connector, these little cables will provide the proper mic levels and preserve the delicate connector contacts inside your expensive camera. 18 Inch overall.
Designed for portable digital audio recorders and mic preamps with a single output jack. This jack is typically used for headphone monitoring or connecting to a DSLR audio input for recording. The LN2MIC-ZMGH-MON Y-Splitter cableallows you to do both monitoring and recording from a single output jack. It also features a -25dB L Pad attenuator on both audio channels to reduce the Prosumer Line Level output (-10dBV) to your camera's mic input sweet spot level. It's the perfect mating cable for Zoom H4N recorders when connecting to a Panasonic Lumix GH2 but also works great for other similar mic preamps and DSLR cameras that require 25db of attenuation.
The cable is designed with the proper impedances to assure maximum voltage transfer and low noise operation. The cable shield is isolated on the camera end to prevent shield noise from directly coupling into the camera connector ground. The cable allows users to go directly from the audio recorder into the camera and also monitor with headphones, creating a compact and elegant interface solution. All resistors values are 1% metal film to assure similar voltage attenuation between the stereo inputs. Cable ends are labeled for proper connection.18" overall length.
Compatibile with the following DSLR cameras:
- Panasonic: Lumix GH1, Lumix GH2
