Sennheiser EW100 ENG

I'm looking to purchase the Sennheiser EW100 ENG kit. I would like to use the transmitter to plug into a mixing board so that I can wirelessly transmit the signal from the board to my camera. Is the cable I need the Sennheiser CL-2 Line Cable for Sennheiser BeltPack Transmitters, 1/8" Mini Male Jack to XLR-Female? Is this the correct cable I need to purchase in addition to the kit to plug into the transmitter?

If not, can anyone tell me which cable I need to buy?

The answer is: maybe.

I don't know what mixer you are using.

Let's just say it's a Mackie 1402VLZPRO, which has XLR mic-level outputs. In that case, this cable should work fine.

You might also pick up some XLR to TRS adapters. Some mixing boards have both stereo main out and mono auxiliary outs. While it is common to have the stereo main outs on L/R XLR connectors, tying in your wireless there would only send one channel to your camera. What you'd want to do instead is tie in your wireless to the mono line out and those are often on a TRS connector instead of an XLR.
