I need addtional mic support for my HD camcorder. I am looking at getting DXA-2T. But then I noticed BeachTek also makes the DXA-SLR. It looks like they do very much the same thing but one if for Camcorders and one for Cameras.
Anybody interested in helping me understand the difference?
Primary difference is that the more expensive DXA-SLR has built-in preamps (to help out bad DSLR preamps) and AGC disable (for DSLRs with automatic gain control). For your camcorder, all you should need is the DXA-2T.
I thought about going this route, but bought a Tascam DR-40 and a Sescom LN2MIC-TASD100 cable instead. About the same price as a 2T, gives you your XLR inputs, and you get a pro quality 4 track 24-bit 96kHz recorder thrown in for good measure!
