Nice to see you around... I have your J-rod with Azden shockmount that I never used - neither with my V1 nor with the EX1, because - if you remember our discussion - the rings spacing is too far apart for the typical short shotgun mics, commonly used with this camera types... It can't accomodate my Edirol CS-50; when I ordered the Sony ECM-673 along the EX1 I was hoping that one would fit... But no joy, either!

Looking at Bob's solution, I hope you now understand what the shockmount ring spacing should be to accomodate most mics...

So, I have to spare one of Jeff's J-rodes with Azden shockmount and additional shoe; if somebody is using a really long shotgun - let me know :)

I use the rode sm5 and always found that my MK416 with rycote softie seems way to flexible inside it, one little movement and the mic can be pointing at the sky.

With the EX1 though I've found I can rotate it so that the ring parts are resting on the handle and the built in mic then supports the softie which makes everything a little more stable. It does restrict access to the forward upper controls but I tend not to use those much anyway.

I'll take some pics next time I set it up.
