Beachtek adapter

Robert is an aspiring filmmaker and he uses a DSLR to make his films. He's planning to upgrade to a better platform, but wants to know how he can improve his audio. Leo suggests Beachtek. They make devices that will allow him to run real XLR microphones into his camera's minijack and take advantage of better preamps as well. That's the best place to start.
