That pesky mic wind screen...

Have you noticed just how easily the NX5U's ECM-XM1 mic wind screen sliiiides off? Have you walked around with the camera out only to notice the wind screen is gone!? Then the mad scramble to retrieve it or replace it.

Well never fear, VELCRO is here!

I had some small velcro tabs I had purchased from Home Depot so I took one of the "pile" tabs and placed it on the backend of the ECM-XM1 mic, pulled the wind screen up over it and it is now a secure wind screen that can still be removed. See photos
