PXW-X70, Shotgun Mic Too Loose.

I have a PXW-x70 as well as an Azden 250cx shotgun microphone. Problem is it is loose in the shotgun mic holder, falls right out.

I bought a microphone spacer of the sony parts store, and while it fits nicely over the microphone, it is still too lose in the in holder with it clamped down.

This one : https://www.servicesplus.sel.sony.co...17988201.aspx#

I have some upcoming shoots where I am going to need to fix this, but I'm finding very little info on how I can do so.

SOS.

Would love your thoughts!

Thank you!

I think the 250 CX is around the same diameter as my Rode NTG 1.
I just use a couple of wraps of thick elastic tape.
Kind of down and dirty, but it's worked fine for years.

I've used old computer Mouse mats. The Neoprene foam type ones. Find a black one and just cut a strip to suit. Has anti vibration properties and ensures a decent fit. Works a treat.

1 rubber tubing from a hardware store. About $1/foot. Cut to length then splice once the long ways to allow the mic to slip in.
