Z1 Microphone Options.

Have noticed that when attaching a Senheiser ME66 microphone & windjammer on the Z1 the windjammer is just visible on the screen.
Is there an alternative microphone mount to fix this problem??
What is everybody else using?

audio tecnica

Been using a audio technica low profile universal shock mount with the camera shoe mount adapter and audio technica 1.5 ft. XLR male to right angle female. Very sturdy and also gets the mic out far enough infront so you don't hear the zoom and also adds heighth so the mic isn't in frame. Just make sure when you thread your mic through the rubber bands of the mount that you twist the rubberbands once to make the mic fit tighter in the mount.This has worked great for all our field producers, hope it helps you out also. At B&H your total should be around $80.00 for all 3 parts
