I second the DM-Accessories flat adapter recommendation. For my Rode mic, I used the K-Tec short shockmount designed to slide into the cold shoe adapter.

Agree about the mic lead - I use a 90 degree one.

I've not had a problem with the headphones cord, but I can see Dan's point.
Is this the one you're referring to Ted:

I'd replace 7. with the Slim 486 IR cut filter. Never take mine off the camera.
You'll also need an XLR lead for 4. I'd suggest replacing the stock Sony mic holder with the EX flat from DM Accessories and getting the Rode shock mount that goes into a cold shoe. Then you can easily take the mic off the camera. Much easier to pack that way.
Thanks bob , I already ordered two MxR adapters , regrading the XLR lead I think it's come with the kit

You should never put another filter in front of this filter, it is quite reflective.
As I found out if you're getting up very close to the subject for macro work you might want to take it off.
This filter is needed to avoid a problem with IR contamination, depending on the light sources you can get black material turning quite magenta.

Living down here I can face the same problem. The ND2 filter could be a few stops more. A polarizing filter may or may not make the sky darker. It can also cut reflections from water and most reflective surfaces. You have to be able to rotate the filter to align it at right angles to the polarization of the light you're wanting to cut. That means you would probably want it in a good matte box with a rotating stage especially if the camera is in sunlight. The extent to which a pola will darken the sky also depends on the position of the sun so it's not a cure all for that problem. When it does darken the sky it also affects the look of the shot, increasing the contrast between clouds and sky.

I would have thought a ND or grad ND would be better for your problem. You can get combined ND & IR cut which would be important with the EX cameras otherwise you'll increase the IR contamination problem. Both ND and more so grad ND filters also need to be mounted in a matte box. In fact a matte box without a filter could help improve shots in strong daylight. I'd suggest adding a french flag and wings to it as well.

I was thinking that Magic Bullet Looks may resolve this issue instead of a polarizing filter

Hello Bob,

I'm curious if you experienced IR problems when using no filter at all or only when using an ND filter.
