The Mini Windjammer is a simple, lined, furry cover to fit over the microphone directly or its foam gag. They are used on and off camcorders to provide a cheap and effective protection against wind noise in high wind conditions. They may also be extremely useful as added wind protection for reporter or location microphones. Designed for semi-professional applications, they are made from similar materials to their big brothers. They can give up to 30dB of wind-noise reduction when used over an existing foam windshield.
They are available in several sizes; the small, medium and large with popper fastenings and the special sizes with draw-string fastening. Small size fits over Canford windshields C5/C8/C10, Medium size fits over C13.

Suitable for most solid-state hand-held portable recorders fitted with a female 1/4 inch tripod thread, this suspension offers 'excellent isolation from vibrations, shocks and handling noise'. The suspension uses the patented Rycote 'Lyre' construction to give isolation with robustness. Unlike rubber or elastic suspensions the Lyre is unaffected by temperature extremes, and so can be used in the harshest of environments.
Supplied with a 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch swivel adaptor, the suspension can be mounted on a 3/8 inch male thread, microphone stand or boom pole, or be attached to a camera hot shoe using a supplied adaptor, which itself has a 1/4 inch female thread in its base. The 180 degree swivel allows for easy orientation of the recorder so it can point in the exact direction of the sound source.
Dimensions (WxLxH): 70 x 54 x 95mm. Weight: 106g
This has the same functionality as 041119, however it is designed for compatibility with recorders weighing over 300g.
The Hot Shoe Extension extends the accessory shoe of a camera so that multiple attachments can be fitted such as lights and additional microphones. Alternatively it can be used simply to place accessories in a different position to the camera shoe. Since the extension can rotate around the shoe fixture on the camera, the microphone can be easily moved out of shot and also adjusted to achieve the optimum balance.
It consists of an extruded aluminium bar, into which the bases of hot shoe fittings can be located. An extruded slot in the base takes an adjustable fitting with a male 'foot' to fit a camera accessory shoe. As a result, it is really a 'cold shoe' since any electrical contacts in the camera will not connect to the accessories.
The extension is offered in 100mm, 200mm and 400mm lengths all with a single 'foot' to fit the camera. In addition, a second 200mm option is offered which has, in addition, two adapters which slide in the upper slot of the extrusion and have 3/8 inch studs with locking rings to attach those accessories which have a female thread to take standard microphone stands.
This simple bracket is used for mounting up to two wireless receivers onto camcorders or DSLR cameras. The bracket can be mounted on either the camera 1/4 inch mounting point, if available, or the accessory shoe. The bracket holds the receiver(s) on four soft-grip pads, held down by the use of two "hook and loop" straps.
Suitable for most wireless receivers; the maximum strap length is 220mm (allowing for "hook and loop" grip).
Dimensions (WxLxH): 70 x 65 x 20mm. Weight: 51g.
