get this and the extra ring adapter for canon.

It a little pricey , but it is really good. don't try to get the Rode SM4 or SM5. It a bit lose and the mic is always dipping down wards when you add a Rycote on it.

If you are planning on using on shorter mic too. then get the Ktek KSSM instead.

It is much better then clogging your hotshoe

First -- the accessory shoe on the Canon XH series camcorder is not powered, therefore it is not a hot shoe.

Second -- consider mounting your mic on another bracket and reserve the camera shoe for the light.

There are a wide variety of ways to add an extra shoe or two. Check out http://bracket1.com/ and also the Mini Rover at B&H:

SIMA offers a low cost ($13 range) bracket the provides two shoes on it. Not very elegant, but may meet simple needs.

This appears to be the same one I bought but under a different brand name as a PAGlight accessory from the UK PAGstore. Mine had very tight brackets and I had to operate on them to use it with a Sennheisser receiver.
