I use the SM-3 and a NTG-2, and it does in fact pick up a little zoom-noise, but only when I zoom at high speeds.

No, i haven't test it yet, but i don't believe both the shockmount and the mic will fit in the rainslicker. The shotgun itself will fit, but even that isn't easy. The Porta rainslicker is a really thight fit in places, wich is good for keeping the rain out, but sometimes a pain to get it around the camera.

Hi

Hubert, is it a 351MVB or 351MVB2 tripod? Do you find it stabil enough?


Regards,

/Bo

Hubert Duijzer May 5th, 2008 03:18 AM

Bo, it's the MVB2. It's heavy and stable. The head is another thing, not bad, but i expected it to be better.
Next time i have to double the budget for a Vinten Vision 3 or something like that.

That's awesome, looks like a crazy sea critter. Or some weird camcorder hermit crab.

Nothing radical here, I'm in love with the blue star eye cup though. One of the best $8 I've ever spent, and on a superficial level, it perfectly accents the red ring on the lens. The headphone hole is something to think about, I can't stand the rubber flap. I'm also quite envious of the right angle XLR cables... although for now I just pull off the Rode windscreen and put the XLR cable inside it when it's in my case.

I do get a good amount of tape drive and zoom noise with the NTG-2. I would love to find another mounting solution that doesn't involve a hotshoe mount, maybe there's a J-Rod in my future.

Great Thread!

Glen, how long is your XLR cable? That looks to be the exact length I'm after.

Thanks!

Speaking of right angle XLR's I've been using Redco custom cables to get exactly what I want. http://www.redco.com

Here is my new setup. I have two identical setups like this one and am also using an hv20

Canon Xh-a1
Hoodman h300 lcd hood with magnifier
audio technica shotgun mic
right angle coiled XLR
sony large eye cup
glidecam 2000 ( it's heavier but is balanced perfectly and works great!)

Josh Chesarek May 8th, 2008 11:42 AM

So you are using the GC2000, with a quick release? I assume its working well for you? I might want to do that as I have to rebalance each time but I have gotten pretty good at it.
