Does anyone know for sure that the Azden -1x will show in the frame?

I actually tested this by pushing a dowel through my Azden shockmount and along its bottom edge to simulate the shotgun with its windscreen on. I advanced the dowel until I could see it in the viewfinder or LCD. At the point where it just appears, the distance from the front of the dowel to the front of the shockmount is about 9.5 inches.

The SGM-1X's barrel is just under 12" long, of which 4.5" will be in the shock mount. That leaves 7.5" in front of the mount. Even with the windscreen on, it should not be visible.

The SGM-2X's double barrel is 16", which would leave more than 11" in front of the mount. It would probably appear even without its windscreen unless it was pushed further back into the mount.

Cool.

Looks like I may get one.

Im just nervous about it not working with the MA-300 without a preamp.
