RYCOTE MICROPHONE SUSPENSIONS - InVision Video

These members of the InVision range are shock-mount and suspension systems for fitting microphones between 9.5 and 25mm in diameter and up to 300mm in length, depending on model, to camcorders and digital SLR cameras. Most are fitted to the camera hot-shoe; others screw into a standard quarter-inch thread, available on some camcorders, or by means of separately available adapters.

In each case the microphone is suspended in two of Rycote's W-shaped patented Lyre mounts, which provide 'substantially better isolation from camera motor and drive noise and vibrations than traditional on-camera microphone mounts'. Since there are no elasticated parts, the mounts never sag or need re-threading.

042901 - Hot Shoe

A 'universal' plastic clip is supported by two Lyres which are in turn supported by a 'modular' bar. The modular bar includes a moulded cable clip, and is connected to one end of a transverse bar by a bolt with thumbscrew. The modular bar can swivel on the transverse bar and be moved along it's length and then fixed in position using the thumbscrew. At the other end of the transverse bar a hot-shoe adapter is fitted using a thumb-screw about which it can swivel a full 360 degrees in the horizontal plane. As a result the microphone can be positioned as desired in the horizontal plane, but remains fixed in the vertical plane.

The universal clip is suited to microphones 19 - 25mm in diameter and up to 300 mm in length.

042902 - 1/4 inch Adapter

Substantially the same as the 042901, this model does not have a hot shoe mount, it is substituted by a standard quarter-inch threaded screw which fits to a female thread and is locked using a thumbscrew. It is otherwise the same.

042905 - Hot Shoe, Mini - 9.5 Lyre

Similar to the 042901, this model dispenses with the plastic clip to hold the microphone; instead the microphone is clipped directly into the Lyres, which hold microphones from 9.5mm to 10mm in diameter. It has a hot-shoe fitting for mounting miniature shotgun microphones such as the Que Audio MSG1 Mini Shotgun microphone.

042906 - Hot Shoe, Mini - 20.00 Lyre

Similar to the 042905, this is suitable for miniature shotgun types, such as the Nikon ME-1 stereo microphone, of 20mm diameter, with a max length of 100mm. Again the Lyres support the microphone directly and it has a hot-shoe fitting.
