I mount two Sennheiser receivers using a Bracket1 universal bracket and two BEC sennheiser mount boxes; I know BEC has boxes for certain Sony models but don't know which fits your system. You might look at the bhphotovideo site for information on these items; or, considering you are fortunate enough to live nearby their superstore, ask them to fit you. best wishes / Battle Vaughan/miamiherald.com video team

any specific model for my sony? i looked at the site ... didnt find any thing

I'm not familiar with your specific model, so I can't be of help there, but as I said above, you might talk to B&H, they're pretty good about knowing their stuff. Or try BEC themselves for help: Digital Video Camera Accessories, Wireless Receiver Holders, Digital Camera Accessory, Camera Brackets by The BEC Group /bvaughan

Thanks to Don's sharp eye in finding this. While I was poking around B&H to see what I'd missed, ran into this, which may be of interest, a clip for your Sony's that works directly on the Bracket1 Universal Bracket. They make one for Sennys also, think I may buy one. It's lots cheaper and less bulky than the BEC boxes....worth a look: Bracket1 | Universal On Camera Wireless Receiver Mount

and was wondering is this for just one reciever? or both would fit in there?has any one used it before ? if only one would fit .. how would i attach it on the camera ?

That's a metal box that holds one receiver; you can piggyback two together to hold 2 receivers, and attach the both of them to a proper bracket. This is what I'm doing with the Sennheisers on my xha1 using the Bracket 1 Universal bracket I mentioned earlier. / bvaughan

BEC transmitters and plates/brackets
i have researched around the BEC website looking for plates/brackets and transmitter holders for a Canon XH A1, the interesting thing is that no where on the website they have mentioned the plates/bracket/transmitter holder are for what camera. since we all know that every camera have its own unique dimensions and complexities.

secondly, if i buy two wireless transmitter holders and one plate to mount them on, its will cost me around $ 200, which is way over my budget just to mount two transmitters.

can some one provide me with a cheaper solution for this problem?
May be i can just buy one bracket/plate and than somehow try to mount them transmitters on it, any ideas?

the bracket that attaches to the camera is universal.
I thinks it's the DVCAM bracket or something like that, about $75.00
The boxes for the receivers are dedicated to a certain mfgr and insome cases certain models.
Keep in mind that mounting 2 receivers on a small form factor camera will severly change the balance. Hell it even does thaton a full size camera.
You could just get the bracket and velcro the receivers to it.

where do we even attach the plate to my canon xh a1?
i have looked all over my camera, there is no place i can think of where i can attach the plate. i have the camera in my hand.

where can i attach the plate?


Don Bloom April 19th, 2009 08:31 PM

the bracket is screwed to the bottom of the camera to the tripod mounting hole using a supplied 1/4X20 screw. the only problem is if you are using a quick release plate as well. The screw is generally a bit short to fit thru the bracket to the camera but you can make it work.

Ansab Khan April 19th, 2009 09:25 PM

which bracket?
which bracket and where can i get it?

im so sorry u must be thinking, i'm askign too many questions but i really need it for a coverage next friday....

thanks man......

If you want a very quick and simple solution, just strap the two UPC receivers together, back to back.

Next, open out the external mike holder so it makes an almost flat platform and strap (a couple of rubber bands will do) the two receivers on to it.

I've done it using one receiver so can't see why it won't work with two. It also means they're nice and close to the XLR inputs.

I just want to say that the Bracket1 mounts are top notch. I got the "HD" model for my XHA1 and it worked really great. Plenty of room for one or two receivers with either the mounting clips or velcro, plus it's lightweight and strong. No problems for mounting to the camera, as there's a recessed screw to go into the tripod mount on the camera, and a tripod plate easily screws on over that. Money well spent on a solid and lightweight accessory.
