Very Versatile And Effective
on March 5, 2010
Actually, the other review about having to remove the base to put this shock mount on a tripod is not completely correct. By simply using a $1.85 1/4 20 to 3/8 adapter (which can be had at any camera store) and screwing it into the bottom it can then be placed on any tripod without having to take the unit apart.
The great thing about this shock mount is that it can be used in the hot shoe of a camera or put on the end of a regular boom pole without adding anything or taking off anything. Also tilt adjustable. The distance between the two round holders is about 2 1/4 inches. I use it with a rode NTG-1 boom and also an Oktava. It is expensive for "a piece of plastic," but all shock mounts are expensive and this is about half the cost of many of the others on the market and it is more versitile. The isolation from the rubber bands is great. In fact, I think the isolation from bumps and vibrations is better that those more costly units that have the hard rubber suspension.
I'm so pleased with it and how well it performs and its versatility I'm buying a second one.
