I've done the hotshoe extension thing. What I'm looking to do is make use of 1/4" thread hole on the handle.

Any ideas people?

Grazie, might not be your cup of tea but here's something to look at. Scroll thru the page and you'll see the 2 items I'm talking about, made just for your camera and you Xmitters.

Receiver Camera Mounts

Re: Attach TWO Senni RXs to the XF300?

Yes Don. I looked at the BH site and I couldn't see that range at all. I could immeadiately see something for the XF but did discover the supplier's name and hotfooted over to there Spot the camera:- Bracket 1: Video Camera Bracket system for Mounting Wireless Microphone Receivers and Accessories to your camcorder or SLR .

Here's what I saw over there for the XF300:- Brackets for mounting accessories to your video camera or SLR

I think the bracket will extend very much wider than the camera, could make things unwieldy. But it's a real workman like piece of kit. It does emerge from the tripod plate. Very strong.

Interesting, Don, thanks.

Grazie

Yes, I saw that one too. Still needs a way to finesse twin options. Sure, get 2!

Presently I'm fossicking about with the Senni clip thing and "foot".

Cheers

Grazie

It is setup to take two RX but not ideal as you don't have easy access to change batteries etc and I don't know if they will get interference if laid on next to each other. If I come across anything else I will let you know.

Quite happy with this setup:-

Easy-peasy. I did it with some tat I had in my toot pouch.

Yesterday I tested for Tx >>> Rx clarity and fidelity - perfect.

Grazie

Very nice Grazie, ideal for corporate stuff :) Great use of that 1/4" thread on tripod.
Still waiting for delivery notice of my XF300, heard that there will be a delivery block because of the Thailand flood problems in the near future (hopefully min is in the UK already).

Yeah, pretty "fit" huh!?!

As to your camera, I had the Tsunami tragedy which waylaid deliveries to UK. Japan's issues then and now still far out way any tiny dissappointment I may had been feeling.

Stay patient, it'll come.
