good accessorie shoe extender for H1?

I have a VIDled that I bought when I had an HVX200 that worked fine. But when I mount it on my H1 there is a problem. The lens is obviously much bigger on the H1 and it casts a shadow onto the subject when I use the VIDled. So I am looking for an extender that will lift the VidLED up and maybe forward a little to get around this.

Can anyone recommend something that will work? I found one one on BH

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...Tri_Mount.html

but this seems too awkward to me. I'd like something that is a little more simple and not so gangly if you will. Oh....and I need this by tomorrow! Seriously! I have a shoot this weekend so I need to pick something up asap.

Any input would be great!

Thanks.

One thing you'll want to consider is whether you want to be able to adjust the position or not. You may want to look at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/126229-REG/. Another option might be the Bogen / Manfrotto 2896HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm (ends have 3/8" female thread and 1/4" 20 male) and a couple of accessory screw-on shoes.

Henry,

Check your ordering system and you will see that your inventory for that just dropped by one as I purchased that exact model from you guys yesterday. I hope it works.
