Mount Cam to Mic Stand

Is there some kind of tripod type head that will attach to a microphone stand? I think mic stand screws are 5/8".

I'm wanting to attach a small DV cam to something like a mic stand with a heavy disc base (not legs).

I want to put it in a crowded theatre close to the stage and regular tripod legs would get in the way of the crowds.

Have you considered "clamps" like these?

The point being, that IF you can locate an "existing" clamping point then odds are it WILL be out of the way to start with.

No, I hadn't seen that before. But I see what you mean now. Thanks!

Found The Solution

A OP-R09M (Microphone Stand Converter for Edirol R-09) will attach to a mic stand and the top can be screwed into the bottom of a small dv cam. And it even swivels. Too bad there are none in stock any where.
