The Sescom DSLR-AGCY AGC-Disable Y-Splitter Cable is designed specifically for use with the Canon 7D and Canon T2i DSLR cameras. More than just a Y cable, the DSLR-AGCY is used to "trick" the 7D and T2i into continuously disabling its AGC (Audio Gain Control) function and allow for an uninterrupted microphone signal.
The split end of the cable features a 3.5mm mini male connection, used to send a tone (downloaded from Sescom's website) from an iPod or other audio playback device. The 3.5mm mini female end is used to connect a microphone.

I've received this cable recently and was very disappointed. The cable shown in the Adorama catalog (i.e. black cable jack sleeves with gold tip) is not the one in the package they sent me which is silver tip and silver jack sleeves. No disclaimer, no selection of colors and no e-mails was sent for me to confirm if i'll accept. Worst thing,I bought 3 of these. I've asked for a replacement as what is advertised and shown in the ir catalog. I'm waiting for Adorama's investigation and action.
