What's out there in the way of in camera microphone mounts

Although I'm using my ME66 mainly on boom, I would like to mount it onto my XM2 as well for when I can't get an operator. What do you all recommend in the way of mounts and is shockmounting really needed on an oncamera mic?

Cheers

I use a beyerdynamic shockmount (the EA86). To be able to use the top-handle I use a so called "extension arm" from a Sony microphone (the MS908c).
This moves the microphone away from the camcorderbody just enough, and raises the ME66 a bit which keeps it out of the frame.

I have posted two pics of my setup :
