The problem I see with using anything other than the Pany unit is you lose a true balanced mic/line input to the camera. All the 3rd party XLR adapters have to use the mini-stereo input which is not balanced and to me would add to the probablity of having audio problems, plus I don't know if the voltage and current supplied through this connection would be enough for a true phantom power mic.

I personally would encourage you to pop for the Panasonic unit.

Only the Beacktek DXA-6 and DXA-6vu supply phantom power, and they use 9 volt batteries. I would definitely get the Panasonic XLR adapter. It has it's own mic clamp, and draws phantom power from the camera's battery.

Rode VideoMic

I asked this question before but never got a clear answer.

I want to run a shotgun mic on my DVC30, and I'm looking at the Rode VideoMic.
It says it uses a mini AV jack for the audio output to the camera. So does this mean I do not need the Panasonic XLR adapter to run this mic?

No, you don't need xlr for it.

Another question:

On the Rode VideoMic, when I want to check my levels, how is this done? Will my audio 'bars' on the viewfinder reflect the microphone recording even though it is not the stock one?
