http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=73098&is=REG it's a sennheiser k6 with a me64 carioid cap on it. You could get a 1/8 to xlr and just put this in a shock mount that fits into the shoe right? Like maybe a berdynamic mount.

There are a number of threads covering this topic

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...threadid=20055

Basically the mic needs to be outboard of the camera and raised so use a Stratos, mini rover or cheap grip. if you mount it on the shoe it'll be ungainly, hard to handle and the mic will be in the frame, especially with the compact and low profile Beyer and Sennheiser mounts.

So far as small shoe mounted shock mounts go there are 2 beyer, one sennheiser and the AT8415 that are in the below $50 range. There are several recent threads covering this. The best is the 8415 with the AT shoe adapter. The cheapest is a $29.95 Bayer

The K6 series would be ok to use with just the 1/8 to XLR adapter, it's a fairly "hot" mic and won't need preamplification. This adapter has also been discussed recently.

Worst case is you may need a pad to limit it in very noisy environments. Buy an adjustable pad, AT and Sure make one where the attenuation can be adjusted in small increments.

Making your own adjustable pad just wouldn't be practicle. Making your own fixed involves simple soldering but putting the pad in a reasonably small and usable package would be more trouble than it would be worth and most likely cost you as much as you would pay for one

yah i'm not too concerned about the technical side of doing this, but i just wanted to know if the mic would be in frame. I think i'll go with the AT8415 mount with the shoe adapter, that way i'll at least be getting a mount i can also use to boom.

Do you think that the AT mount would raise the k6/me64 enough to get it out of frame? It might look a little odd i'm sure but hey, i've always thought looks were over-rated.

The Beyer and the sennhieser would definetly be too low.
The AT is the better choice, the shock mount and the shoe adapter are metal, the other two are plastic.

As you say, the AT will work on a boom.

For ease in handling a grip would be better. A grip is also going to give you a steadier grip. The grip allows you to lock your elbows in tight to the upper body. As such the camera will move with your whole upper body and not shake as a normally held camera might.
