Mounting my Panasonic Shotgun MIC

I just received my new Panasonic AG-MC200G Camera Mountable Shotgun Microphone. I intent to mount this shotgun mic to my New Panasonic AG HMC 150 camcorder.

In the Panasonic instruction book, they have a half a page on how to mount this shotgun. I am having problems with the Microphone holder and adapter that came with the camera on how to attached it to my camera.

Does anyone have a better drawing and tutorial on how to attached the holder and adapter to my HMC 150?

Re: Mounting my Panasonic Shotgun MIC

Hi Melvin, does the mic not simply fit in the mic holder of the 150 ? it may be a bit of a loose fit, most camera mic clamps are a little on the large size. If so just pad the mic out with a couple of rubber O rings or some thin foam. I dont have a 150 so dont really know the set up, but it must surely have a standard mic clamp !!!!!

Colin the 150 "light shoe" is a slot that I thought would also fit any external mic. That's why Panasonic designed this powerful Shotgun Mic to be inserted on the side of the build-in Mic. They provided the holder and adapter. I wish Panasonic would have a more detailed instruction on how to put this holder and adapter together.

According to the panasonic website the 150 comes with a mic holder, that should fit any mic
