Nice setup Tom.

Few questions:
1) Are you happy with the Rycote Softie ? Can you estimate what sort of windspeed that it protects up to ? I have a Rode Deadcat on my Videomic and i think I may need a better windshield so i am looking at Rycteo and Lightwave etc.

2) How does the ME66 sound indoors? I guess for wedding stuff, its big halls or churches or marquee or something so the delayed-reflections off walls isnt really a problem? In a normal room environment, do you use another mic? me64?

3) Also any idea how much a 2nd-hand VX2000 would go for in the UK?

4) Whats the clamp/tripod widget in this shot :
Is it a Manfrotto Super-Clamp? looks a bit like it. Any chance of a URL to that at B&H (for whatever it is).

It was the light that Laurence Kingston used with his equipment. I included it because that's one of the originally posted images.
