dSLR shock mount: T2i
A quick question with what I assume will be an even quicker answer.

For those using the Canon T2i, which shock mount would you recommend using the hot shoe on top of the camera? I know, it's a terrible setup, but for the sake of argument, let's just say I want a mic on the top for what I'm using it for. I've got the Rode shock mount that works with the NTG-2 (I'm actually using my MKH416P48 on it), and I've noticed that the mount - though claiming that it works in Canon hot shoes -- doesn't quite fit, and wobbles. It's too long, and doesn't snap into place.

Thoughts are appreciated, as always!

Use the Rycote Video Mount or Universal Camera Kit - it's the best solution.

I have this on my 7D and it works very well:

In its day it was good for the price.

The Rycote Lyre mounts re-defined shockmounting when they came out - vastly superior to everything else (though the Cinela Osix and Shure donut are close) - are inexpensive, rugged, don't droop or bounce and do not deteriorate with age.

I know I tend to go on about these mounts - but they are *so* much better than anything else on the market at any price that I have to keep repeating it. And because the design is patented no-one can copy them.
