Cameras: News and Updates
Beachtek announces the new MCC-2. A low cost compact audio solution for camcorders and DSLR cameras.
The Beachtek MCC-2 is a two-channel, audio adapter / bracket combo that lets you mount, connect and control wireless mics and small, self powered camera mounted microphones such as the popular Rode VideoMics that have unbalanced mini-plug connectors. Since the adapter is a passive device, it is completely noise-free for superb audio. The adapter is also virtually unclipable and offers an extremely wide dynamic range. No power or batteries are required to operate the adapter.
The MCC-2 is very easy to set up and use. The dual trim controls allow you to adjust the signal levels independently and the output switch lets you select mono or stereo operation. The rugged extruded aluminum chassis has 3 integrated mounting shoes to securely attach the wireless mics and shotguns. Its compact size fits neatly on top of any camcorder or DSLR camera that has a standard mounting shoe.
Ideal for use with DSLR cameras such as the Nikon D800 that have a headphone jack to allow you to monitor the audio.
This product is expected to be released by May 1 , 2013 to leading audio and video dealers worldwide. The suggested list price of the MCC-2 is $89.00 in the United States.
