I've actually been looking into these XLR camcorder adapters.  Here's a summary of what I've found:

www.beachtek.com - Mounts to camera.  Various passive adapters.  Some with phantom and audio meter.  New unit with preamp (DXA6HD).

www.juicedlink.com - Mounts to camera.  All include preamplifier.  Options include phantom, 2-4 XLR inputs, audio meter.

www.studio1productions.com - Doesn't mount to camera, and no phantom or preamp option.  Option for 3 XLR input. Plastic case.

www.signvideo.com - Mounts to camera.  No phantom or preamp option.  1 and 2 XLR input options.


The juicedLink website has an interesting demo video (using a GL2), showing how a preamp can reduce camcorder hiss while recording fine audio detail:
