There should be hot shoe extensions to allow mounting multiple stuff. Depending
on the type of work you do it might be a better idea to use a sound person
and have the mic on a boom.

Look around some of the professional photographic stores. There are many adapters that will fit into the hot shoe, or as I have, an extender that screws into the tripod bush and then extends out with a hotshoe adapter, therefore allowing me to use the onboard hotshoe as well.

Cheers,

Good luck.

-----------------------------------------------------------

I made my own dual-mount. I used a 16-gauge steel strip, 3/4" wide, from a hardware store. I cut, bent and drilled it in the right places and tapped threads for locking bolts. After milling down the edges of the bottom part, I could fit it into the camera's shoe and use a thumbscrew to tighten it down. I fastened a 5" strip of 1/4" oak on the top with holes for mounting screws on each end, one for a mike and one for a light or for two mikes.

This won't be much help for anyone now, but with my old Canon L-1, there were two mike shoes, one high and the other lower and forward. I made a two-legged mike and light mount this way with one foot into each shoe. This was very sturdy and could hold a lot of weight. I wish all camcorders had dual shoes like this.

However, I've successfully mounted mike shoes on camcorders that had none and could put on a second one on any model that had room for it. I used superglue and a short strip of the rubber from one of those heavy-duty, black tie-down straps. The rubber acts as a buffer between the hard camera and the shoe and allows a solid, permanent attachment to be made without any screws. If the superglue is used properly, it will hold these materials very well. I sanded all the parts and put on the rubber first and then the shoe in a separate application. Those I've put on this way have never come loose. The rubber provides a bit of flexibility and blocks much of the vibration that might go up into the mike.
