Can I use this mic? (Stereo 1/8" --> two XLR channels?)

Is it feasible to use my DSLR video mic on my camcorder?

My camcorder has the usual 2 x XLR inputs, but I'm trying to use the battery-powered DSLR shotgun mic I already own instead of getting a new powered shotgun. I use Panasonic HMC150 and I'm trying to use my Azden SMX-20. Right now I am using an external recorder or the HMC150's onboard mic :(

I'm betting it would work with a suitable adapter. The audio department at B&H could probably help you with the details. All the same, you oughta buy a better mic. There are quite a few budget mics these days with a genuine XLR connection that give you good bang for the buck. You may be surprised at the improvement in quality, not mention flexibility.
