Compatible Cameras and Digital Records

Any omnidirectional lavaliere microphone can be mounted in the Sound Shark. This means the Sound Shark is compatible with ANY camera or digital recorder with a jack for an external microphone.

Below is a partial list of cameras and recorders, along with the types of microphone port(s) they provide.

Please contact us if your device is not listed. We will be happy to help you determine what type of microphone you will need.

NOTE: Cameras and digital recorders without “plug-in power” or “phantom power” require some type of amplifier or battery box to power the microphone. We recommend the BEACHTEK DXA-MICRO PRO.
