SM93 with T1 and Sony Video Camera VX1000

FAQ #1346 Updated September 30, 2008

Question:

Can I use the SM93 with the T1 body transmitter?

---- 07/16/2001 11:40 AM ----------------------------------------------
Thanks a lot! However, apart from using the lavalier mic (SM93 or WL93)with the T1, I also want to use it as an external mic with the Sony Video Camcorder VX1000. Sony gives following Mic in specifications: 0.388 mV low impedance with 2.5-3 V DC output, impedance 6.8 Kohms. Will SM93 or WL93 do the job?
Thank you.

Answer:

Yes. Just disconnect the microphone from the SM93 preamp and plug it into the T1. If you have not yet bought an SM93, then you should instead buy a WL93. This is the same microphone, without the preamp (which you won't be using anyway).

At 07/16/2001 11:45 AM we wrote - Perhaps the WL93 will work.

Let's assume the Sony is wired as follows: tip = audio; ring = bias; sleeve = ground. If the Sony is wired like this, make the following connections: tip = pin 3 (of WL93); ring = pin 2; sleeve = pin 1. Pin 4 is not used.

But check with Sony first to confirm how the mic input jack is wired.
