    I wholeheartedly recommend this... this little jewel is a very handy piece to have, and an excellent value. It's well made, and fits my camcorder and microphone perfectly, and has no trouble keeping its up/down and left/right alignments.

    I do have one issue: the clip conducts mechanical noise from the tape transport and from handling of the camera into the body of the microphone.

    But -- I can't blame the clip. The mic I like to use for ambient sound is very touchy and sensitive to handling noise.

    This clip is a tremendous value for the price, and if you look at the design, it's fairly obvious that there's very little they could do to avoid sound/vibration conduction.

    What you may not be able to see is that there's a nifty O-ring where the clip clamps down (screws down, actually, to meet a fixed, square mate piece that slides inside the shoe) to your hot-shoe, which is a good design element -- you're not just tightening plastic-to-metal-to-plastic, you've got some rubber in there to keep a tight connection without risking cracking things.

    If you need something like this, this is a *deal*. I say "buy 2" even if you only need 1. That's what I did. Good move on my part.

    The same clip used by AudioTechnica

    This clip looks identical to those included with some Audiotechnica mics, like ATR25 and ATR55. The one I got with my ATR25 mic has cracked, so I bought not one but two more as replacement parts. They are cheap, still this is not a reason for breaking apart. I suggest to put it on your mic once -- very gently! -- and never take it off, or it will crack and fall apart. Also, check the threads and how smooth the nut turns. On one clip out of the two I bought, I could turn the nut only after I applied sanding paper. I was really afraid that I will break this thing.

    This is not a high-tech high-tolerance product by any means. But for the price you may tolerate its faults, after all it works as intended, small, unobtrusive, light, and blends with black color of my camera and mics, so I have marked it as "recommended".

      As far as mounting and holding the microphone it works great. But the one thing I didn't think about is that the motor noise was picked up by the microphone. I had to get another mount the had better isolation.

            This product does the job-hold the mic and mount to the camera's hot shoe. But the foot is too thick to slide into the shoe on the Nikon D7100. It fits into my safe sync. So I mount it to the safe sync and mount that into the camera's shoe. It has 1/4-20 thread on the bottom to mount it on a tripod. But the threads are plastic-be careful and don't tighten it too tight.

              One of the two mount options for my ATR-55 shotgun mic, this easy to use attachment gives your camcorder prosumer chops. Tie your shotgun mic into a mini mic mixer and wireless mics, and mix on the fly: music, crowd noise, or questions from the audience. A necessity for hobbyists who recognize how vital audio is to video.

                            The first thing I have to say is that my order for this came broken in the bag. I assume someone stepped on it as the clip wasn't bubble wrapped and quite honestly packaged rather poorly. They immediately sent me a new one however at no extra cost or expense, and I didn't even have to return the broken one. But I'm not reviewing the shipping department, so I digress.The clip is functional, and you get what you pay for with the price. It's flimsy, but holds my NTG-1 in place fine. I'm giving it five stars because I didn't expect anything more for [$].

                                        Although a small purchase, it was a great one. Usually something like this is built quickly and cheap, but this one is nice and fits snug to my hot shoe. I wasn't expecting much but it worked out perfectly for my little ribbon mic.

                                          I actually intend to use it with a microphone that is thicker than the one for which it is designed, so I had to make some adjustments, but even after my modifications, it is doing its job rather well. The plastic is quite strong and flexible, and the whole thing is very light. The shoe mount is quite sturdy since the thumbscrew allows you to tighten it well.
                                          I use it with my Panasonic HDC-TM900K camcorder and it is working rather nicely so far.

                                                Clip is to wide for the size. Need to put tape on the mike just to hold it.

                                                  I bought several of these to replace the factory Sony PMW-EX3 microphone mounts...paired with the Adaptamax Shoe Mount Holder. It works great to hold my Audio-Technica AT897, plus it isolates camera noise MUCH MORE than the factory mount. Another good point to this mount...it's a clip in style so if the shotgun gets banged into something, it simple pops out and nothing is broken.
