Garry Nattress on another thread mentioned this adaptor which he uses with his small Canon camcorder. I have used a Beachtek XLR box for years with my VX2100 and my little Canon HD camcorder and therefore wonder how the two products compare for I have never before heard of the Juice Link adaptor. Also if the JuiceLink box is far superior to the Beachtek box then where in the UK can it be purchased .

You can get them from Pink Noise Systems, I think they are all pretty much the same so not sure if it is better than the beachtek: http://www.pinknoise-systems.co.uk/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=juicedlink&x=0&y=0

There is also this very reasonable one if you don't need phantom power and buying from the USA may be cheaper for these products: http://www.signvideo.com/xlr-pro_xlr_adapter-audio-mixer.htm

Thank you Garry. The Signvideo product does to me look very much like a Beachtex box.,

Beachtek

I did use the Beachtek with my Rode NTG 2 but I found the output levels from the mic were to low I now use a 0.5M XLR to 3.5mm patch cable when the mic is mounted on my Canon HV30 via a bracket.
For longer cable runs the beachtek was useful but I then had to adjust the audio settings on the camera and dont forget you only record to 1 channel with the Beachtek.
The sound quality from the short cable set up is very good, quite professional in my opinion, I would say if the mic is on the camera you dont need any XLR adapters.
