It figures! I was thinking about using someone's old 18" satelite dish before I saw yours. It's worth a try.

Parabolics need to be made right to work to their potential. I have used several and really like the Dan Gibson Parabolic for the money. It'll run you about $900 but it works very well. The audio quality when recorded is not something you would use to capture dialog in a narrative work, but for surveillance or nature work it does deliver some very impressive results.

I liked this idea when I originally read it way back before I even had a Canon XL2. So now that I've got a XL2 and some equipment attached to go along with it, here's my XL2 -

XL2
Cartoni Focus (tripod & fluid head)
Sennheiser G2 Evolution Wireless mic
TransVideo Cinemonitor IIIA
FireStore FS-4

in the mail -
Manfrotto 522C LANC

on the way -
Redrock M2 Adaptor & Mounting Brackets

Originally, I took the photos over the weekend to show how I mounted my FireStore FS-4 thanks to Michael Padilla's idea in another thread. While some of you may not have a FireStore, the velcro adhered to the "adaptor holder" that your XL2 shipped with may be useful way for you to attach other stuff.

That looks good. The screw may be a great alternative to the Velcro if anyone was not sure about how well it fastened. I'm going to stick with the Velcro for now, no pun intended!
