If you're serious enough about sound quality to be considering spending the money for a MA300, I salute you. But don't buy this item without comparing it to the equally priced Beachtek DXA-4p also available at Amazon. For product details, see beachtek.com. There's no comparison.
Don't get me wrong. I'm actually a Canon supporter. I own and love a Canon GL2 camcorder. And I've heard very positive things about other Canon accessories, like their zoom controller. But the MA300 is highly overpriced for what you get.
Here's what you get with the Beachtek that you don't get with the MA300:
1. Volume control knobs for both channels
2. A mic/line level switch for each input, so you can take a feed from a sound board (line level) in either or both inputs.
3. A mono/stereo switch so that you can optionally apply one input to both channels
4. An auxilliary input mini jack so you can plug in a microphone or a wireless...
So for a while now I kept on wanting to get this adapter for my gl2, and because of the price I forgot about it for some time. I was looking for a replacement battery and found this. I absolutely love it! I'm using my professional mics and the sound quality is so superior. Now I don't have to carry the ikegami everywhere for budget jobs! Thanks guys!
I had read reviews that weren't totally positive about this item. As far as I'm concerned, it meets my expectations. It's a handy way to connect XLR cables to a camcorder not otherwise equipped to receive them. It would be nice if it had a switch to allow one channel of sound to be combined into both channels. That's a small drawback, however, because I can do the same thing in my editing program.
