Capture high-quality, low-noise recordings from your favorite XLR microphone directly to your FUJIFILM camera with the Tascam CA-XLR2d-F XLR Microphone Adapter for Mirrorless Cameras. This version includes an accessory shoe that takes advantage of FUJIFILM’s hot shoe to provide a cable-free digital audio connection to the camera—avoiding any deterioration in sound quality and eliminating the work of synchronizing images and sound in postproduction.

The accessory shoe also allows the camera to supply the adapter with power for the analog-to-digital converter and the 48V phantom power needed for condenser microphones. Two AA batteries will also power the unit, and the 3.5mm output jack will connect to just about any camera’s 3.5mm audio input using the supplied cable, meaning the CA-XLR2d-F can work as an analog audio adapter with a wide variety of mirrorless/DSLR cameras. The audio output can also serve as a headphone jack for real-time monitoring in the field.

Note: Digital hot-shoe compatibility with FUJIFILM X-T4, X-S10, and GFX100S cameras will be available via product updates expected within 2022.
