Phantom power and 3.5mm to XLR pair
Two questions regarding this mic:
1. I want to use this microphone with my audio recorders (Tascam DR-40 and Tascam DR-680), and also my cameras (Panasonic GH2 and Panasonic GH3). I am aware that the mic should not be used with phantom power, but I wonder if the small voltage produced by camera preamps is consider "lethal" to this mic. Neither of my cameras provide phantom power, but I believe all DSLR cameras with mic preamps produce a minimal amount of voltage for use with condenser mics. Unfortunately, I am unable to find technical specs on the mic input and any related voltage that may be present.
2. Does Audio Technica make, or recommend, a splitter cable that will allow splitting the 3.5mm TRS male plug to a pair of XLR male connectors?
