minimount & system isolator compatible?

Hello folks!
Does anybody knows if these accessoires (designed for the XL2) are compatble with the XL H1?

This is what I'm talking about :


MM-XL Universal Minimount

This Minimount will provide a true foundation presence for high quality audio recording, effectively eliminating zoom motor drone and gear tap noise. Also eliminated is handling and tape transport noise. The Mini-mount is a universal and modular type that enables you to instantly switch to any other mic.





SI-XL System Isolator

The System Isolator fits between the viewfinder and the camera body. The viewfinder assembly is moved 60 mm forward, i.e., the camera moves back 60 mm, providing a balanced and relaxed shoulder support. It is designed to provide shock and vibration isolation to the camera's viewfinder and microphone mount assembly system

Both are pretty much built in to the XL H1 already.

All of the advantages of the Universal Mini-Mount are already present in the shock-mounted mic holder on the XL H1. And the viewfinder incorporates a sliding adjustment that will let you position it forward to the almost the same extent that the System Isolator would have done. Hope this helps,

the minimount does allow you to position a mic further back and further from the lens on an XLH1. This can be useful if using a long shotgun with a windscreen - to prevent the mic being in frame
