Sony EX1 Audio Input - 5 Pin XLR?
on Jan 4, 2016 at 9:40:19 pm

Hey gang. I recently purchased a Sony Shotgun Mic for my PMW-EX1 camera. I didn't really pay attention to the Microphone connector when I bought it. I thought it had a standard 3 pin XLR, but it has 5 pins coming from the mic.

I want to keep the mic, is there an adapter to go from a 5 pin male XLR to the 3 pin XLR input on the camera? I saw some on Amazon...but it states its a DMX cable, will this work? If not, does anyone know where I can get one specifically for audio use?

Thanks in advance!

This ECM680S? Yes I also used it with my EX1 and now with my X70

Note at the bottom of the description
The optional EC05X5F3M (formally known as K-1504) cable should be used when connecting the ECM-680S stereo shotgun with camcorders having two 3-pin XLR inputs
Which is what I also bought.

Thanks for the info.

So this wouldn't work then?

Probably not. the 5 pin must break into two three pin connectors for left and right channel each.

I use those adapters to go between DMX and Microplex lighting equipment, which are either 3-pin or 5-pin. I don't think they would work for the application you're describing. Pinouts are probably different. I'd go with the Sony cable.

If you are still looking for a cable. I have one on ebay that I used with XDCAM HD camera that goes from the 5 pin to two 3 pin left and right connectors.

cheers
