Technical Details

  • for Zoom H4N

Product Description

The Sescom LN2MIC-ZMH4-MON cable is designed for portable digital audio recorders and mic preamps with a single output jack. This jack is typically used for headphone monitoring or connecting to a DSLR audio input for recording. The LN2MIC-ZMH4-MON Y-Splitter cable allows you to do both monitoring and recording from a single output jack. It also features a -25dB L Pad attenuator on both audio channels to reduce the Prosumer Line Level output (-10dBV) to your camera's mic input sweet spot level. It's the perfect mating cable for Zoom H4N recorders when connecting to Canon D5 MkII but also works great for other similar mic preamps and DSLR cameras that require 25db of attenuation. The cable is designed with the proper impedances to assure maximum voltage transfer and low noise operation. The cable shield is isolated on the camera end to prevent shield noise from directly coupling into the camera connector ground. The cable allows users to go directly from the audio recorder into the camera and also monitor with headphones, creating a compact and elegant interface solution. All resistors values are 1% metal film to assure similar voltage attenuation between the stereo inputs. Cable ends are labeled for proper connection.

This product works like this. You want to record using your Zoom Recorder as a "shotgun" mic by mounting it on your camera. This cord allows you to monitor audio while recording in real time. Philip Bloom said himself that recording audio without monitoring is like recording video and not looking at the screen. this product does the job. used on a canon 60d

The most painful part of DSLR filming is the anxiety in wondering just what sound you've recorded while on set or on location. With this little cable, you can banish that worry -- provided you have an external sound recorder.

Combined with a Zoom H4n for example, you can now record high quality sound directly through your camera. Place the Zoom or other audio recorder on the hot shoe with a hot shoe adapter (uses the 4/20 screw mount on the back of your Zoom to connect it to the hot shoe.) plug this into the zoom and then the camera and then jack in some headphones. Pre-roll your sound to get the levels right and then go about recording as you normally would!

I've found that I'm more certain and confident in the sound I get which makes for better overall videos as well.

If you want even better sound security, use a second recorder with an XLR microphone and then just sync your audio in post!

Great little product!

Everything Sescom makes is of oustanding quality! Bought this for my Canon 6D and H4N. Flawless. Your only option if you want to monitor your audio during recording. If you own the 5DMKIII you won't need this as it has a built in Headphone jack. This little monster is excellent for the Canon t2i, t3i, t4i, t5i, 60D, 60Da, 70D, 7D and 6D. Also work excellent with Nikon DSLRs!

Got this to record reference audio to my 7D. Since the 7D still has auto gain control (AGC) it still makes this unusable for real audio needs. But, if you're a one man crew like I am this can be great if you're doing interviews with DSLR's or other situations where you want both a backup audio source and a good source to sync with. Makes like easier, that's for sure.

However, -25dB isn't really enough. That may just be the 7D's fault, but overall I still have to change levels in FCP to even out the sound or else the recording in the 7D is way too loud. Now, I could just lower the out from the H4n but that affects my headphones. But overall, it works.

Wow, this works great. I am so happy. Want more, here you go: I am using this with a ZOOM H1 to make it into my external microphone for a Canon VIXIA HF G20. I want to record videos while sitting at my desk (of me talking) and the microphones on the Canon are very good but at 7 feet away or so, just picking up a little too much noise in the room (while that's a great distance for getting the video right). Was looking around for microphones that were pretty high quality but NOT USB for computer and NOT XLR socket dependent. It occurred to me that the mics on various high quality audio recorders I have are very adequate for my needs, but I had to start thinking about how to get the signal from the ZOOM to the camera using a 1/8th inch (3.5mm) stereo mini to stereo mini cable. Of course, there is the line level difference for the headphone/line out on the ZOOM and it's just a lot hotter than the mic impedance input on the Canon. Voila. Googling around found various folks using this SESCOM solution to solve this exact problem.

This works terrifically well. The audio quality I am getting, right into the camera now, is terrific. I use a 10 foot extension cable for the stereo mini to stereo mini (bough a good quality one: KabelDirekt (15 feet) 3.5mm Male > 3.5mm Female Stereo Audio Extension Cable - PRO Series) and am using these settings on the ZOOM:

Low cut: On (likely not matter a lot here)
Auto level: OFF (critically important)
Rec Format: I have on MP3 at high bit rate but this does not matter cause this audio is not needed and don't even need to press record (unless I want a back up of the audio, but the whole point is not to have to sync better quality audio, so who cares!!)

Now, the most important part:

Input Level (rocker on right side of Zoom H1): at 70
Output volume (rocker on left side of ZOOM H1): at 60

It sounds gorgeous. Totally works and I am happy.

Well it works as advertised. For the Lumix GH 2 model. For latest cameras you might want to buy another one with two 3.5 mm plugs. I lose track of little stinky adapters and am overwhelmed with cables of all sorts. Be sure to label for which camera it fits. Use of 2.5 mm plugs may be inevitable though as devices get tiny and tinier......I can't speak to the effectiveness of the L PAD....seems to help and no overload on my DR 4O TASCAM...decent but fussy device by the way...takes great eyesight that TASCAM....

If you are tired of syncing your zoom audio to the video recorded from a DSLR, then you need this cable. I have tested it with the ZOOM H6, so no worries there. I don't use the sound monitoring from the cord, because the ZOOM H6 already as a headphone jack where you can monitor the sound. Attach the zoom to a hot-shoe adapter on your DSLR and then plug N' play the line from the zoom to the mic input on your camera. The professional sound will not be outputted from the zoom to your camera, providing a much more rich sound on your videos. No Need to sync the audio in post.
