Shock Mounts for the A1

I'm keen to have my microphone isolated where practically possible from the A1 and was wondering what your thoughts are regarding this.

I'd be keen not to use the hot-shoe, as I'd like to have the facility to use this for something else should the situation arise.

I've attached a modification that I had fitted to a PD150. The mod was really handy as it kept the mic well away from the mechanics of the camera.. It also allowed me to fit a Rycote to a shotgun and not have it in shot when a w/a lens was fitted.

I'm aware of the J-rod, and had a look at a few of the shock mounts at B&H, though I'm keen to get feedback from folk who have actually bought, used or tried a variety of systems.

Many thanks
Neil

P.S. - Mods, feel free to move this post if it will be better served in the "Now Hear This" section.

Use the J-Rod with my A1. Works very well.
