Re: Sony CAC-12 mic holder

<<<-- Originally posted by Jerry Mohn : Does this mount work? I picked one up on EBAY for $75 bucks, it is well over $100 at B&H. -->>>

Just had a look at a picture of the Sony CAC-12 Camera Microphone Holder and it could work. What I need to know is if the two small screw holes on the Sony CAC-12 match up to the two screw holes on the side of the Sony flip out LCD screen on the FX1.

Anyone know if they do? If so that will be almost perfect, though expensive for what it is.

Hi all

I like Derek's set up very neat.. so far I've settled for this whci works fine...but have been looking into fixing onto the LCD screen Z1 style.. I suspected that the holes would be there..

Gareth where did you get that piece of kit? I have the PAG light C6 as well which needs to be on the camera at all times, This might be a solution for me.
Thanks
Steve

I've used this little swivel mount that I had with an LCD screen.
(doesn't the dust show up with flash!!!)

Hi Steve

Your profile does not say where you live..
If you are in the UK:

It's the double hotshoe barcket

if you are in the US B&H do one :

Hope this helps...

Regards

Thanks for that Gareth.
yes I am in the UK.

It's not the most attractive solution, but it looks like it is wide enough to get around the Formatt matt box. I like the look of Derek Serra's better but as long as it does a job....

Hi Steve

I agree it is not the neatest of set ups... but it is practical.. and cheap..

I too would prefer a solution with the mic set a bit further back on the LCD screen... but until I find a suitable mount I shall use this system...

The other plus point is that with the Beyer EA86 shock mount the LCD flips out easily clearing the mic..

Regards

Gareth

The Sony CAC mount will probably fit - if the holes don't line up, just drill a new one that does! My next project after the shoulder mount and mic bracket is a matte box to fit my camera with the Century Optics wide angle adapter mounted. I'm not willing to pay $ 600 for something I can have machined and assembled at the local metal shop for $ 50.

I must confess - I am a big fan of acoustic isolation, so when my customers can't stretch to a fish pole sound man this is what they get...

I like modular, so when you see the pix think " just add cam"...

Great stuff, John. I usually use an offboard Senheisser with a Rycote shock-mount and softie - the onboard mic is just for incidental sound as I hate the sound produced by the biult-in mic. It's very tinny.

Anybody knows the model # for the mic holder that comes with the Z1? I don't have tools and drills to make one like you guys, I think the one like the Z1 is perfect for me.
Thanks.

FX-1 Mic mount

Hi

Ikegami camera's have a similar mic holder that attaches to the VF1539 series viewfinder, as the one posted at the begining this thread.

Ikegami PN PM-214355.

Im not sure of the cost but it could be easily adapted with an L shape braket.
