      "Gosh, you might want to have that looked at...."

      I used scissors to cut mine down to a little smaller diameter and they fit the camera much better. I also gave mine a bit of a haircut to make the fur's length less asymmetrical. A mohawk looks nice...

      So I was quite surprised at how well the Stereo mics on the LUMIX GH2 worked, but wind noise, despite the internal filters, was more of a problem rather than less. I purchased the Rycote Windjammers solution, but I can say that it's only partially effective with the dual mic operation of the GH2. I had to modify the double sided sticky tape to get it to cover the 2 mics, and I trimmed the one side of each of the 2 material patches to match each other.

      Unfortunately, I also trimmed the patches themselves. Bad move, it reduced the effectiveness. DON'T TRIM THE MATERIAL! I'm going to experiment with the double-sided sticky tape-it's not terribly strong or durable. In fact, I've commenced a search for trim-able double sided tape.
      Overall rating: 3 of 5 for my particular situation. I'd like to find the source for this material, as it seems to me the solutions are uniformly 2x more expensive than the value they offer. $10 for a set of Mini-dead-kitty's is about right. I can get a Rode full sized Dead Kitty for $30. That, at least, has an infrastructure.

      None the less, this is a good solution for not too much money to add a clean source to use your HDSLR for adding a reference for sync-sound or Dual-System audio to your edit. Terrific in combo with DualEyes audio sync app.

            Fuzz falling apart as soon as I opened package. Poor quality. I expect it to fall apart and blow away in the wind. Asked to return, but haven't gotten RMA yet. Totally dissatisfied with this product and service at this point.

            Comments about Rycote Micro Windjammers:

            Giving two stars only because it didn't match the need I had. I found Micro Windjammers by Rycote listed as an accessory for a point and shoot camera. When it came, the fur mic coverings were huge, much too big for 99 percent of all the mic openings on 99 percent of the point and shoots out there--especially including high-priced ones. These were meant for DSLR cameras. These would be great on DSLRs. There is another place to get wind blockers just for point and shoots. A company called Windcutter will work with you from actual measurements you make on your camera, and photos of the camera that you send. If it turns out wrong they will redesign. You'll still hear wind bumps but you'll hear the interview, too. It's impossible without some kind of wind covering to hear audio from nearly any camea. I suspect Rycote is the Cadillac of wind stoppers, but they are just too big for point and shoots. Should not be listed as a point and shoot accessory.

                Comments about Rycote Micro Windjammers:

                I ordered 2 of these not realizing that they had multiple in the package. I use this product on my contour2+. The product is easy to use and simple to install. It works well in low wind situations on a boat out on the Chaesepeak Bay. I have not been able to use it in high winds yet. I used a piece of foam on my last camera which worked really well. The way they work is different. These windjammers are like surrounding the mic with fur or hair. As I said I haven't been able to test in high wind so I am not sure which works best yet.

                      Bought it for the S95 as per the B&H 'recommended accessories' b/c I understand the issue of wind noise on this little camera mics when taking video. I think highly of Rycote and was suprised (taken aback really) that the fit was not great and the quality of the 'fuzz' is also not so great (it sheds ~ a lot ~ which is not so great so close to the S95 lens) and so I had to get another brand which would also be my recommendation to anyone who asks.
