I hooked up with Jade at Saramonic who showed me the SR-VM1 XLR plug-on adapter for XLR microphones.
It records directly to the unit and simply plugs into the back of a reporter mic, or even a shotgun mic allowing you to get rid of those XLR cables once and for all.
There's also a transmitter which looks exactly the same but instead of a recording card, transmits the signal to their UWMIC9 receiver which is the same model used for their wireless lapel systems.
I will be reviewing this unit soon, as I'd love to get rid of the XLR cables and the bulky recorder hanging off my camera.
This unit is less than half the price of comparable Rode units, and these folks are just plain nice.
They are available now and the links are below.
