    Comments about Rycote Mini Windjammer for Canon XF300 / XF305 HD Camcorders:

    I think the product is over priced. It does its job well if you can afford the 10-15 minutes it will take you to actually get it positioned on the mic without falling off.I purchased this to go with a Canon XF 300 I ordered at the same time. I am a Middle School Science Teacher and I am personally investing into the equipment I am upgrading to for YouTube video lessons I am making for my students and parents. The resource helps them to review content taught in class. The windjammer does not come with any diagram or directions as to the best way to attach it to the camera. It takes me fumbling around with it for a good 10 to 15 minutes to insure it will not fall off. However, that being said, it does the job. I was recording a TOP 10 Student video following around some seniors at a football game on a windy evening. The mic picked up everything that I needed without the wind noise. So good product if you can figure out the method for getting it on the camera. (They should include a diagram) I wouldn't be as negative had I not paid so much for it.

    Comments about Rycote Mini Windjammer for Canon XF300 / XF305 HD Camcorders:

    We are currently filming a run and gun styled TV adventure series and have to keep our gear down to a minimum. The Canon XF305 camera was an excellent choice for various reasons, but one of it's shortfalls was excessive wind noise on the onboard microphone. We did use external rifle microphones with windjammers that did the trick, but this just added more to the camera and frankly, the onboard microphone has excellent sound qualities thats hard to beat...

    After an internet search for windjammers for the XF305 we came across the Rycote and decided to order one from B&H. From a design perspective it's a flimsy fit onto the microphone thats really not quite up to the task, but we fixed that by glueing velcro strips on the inside of the windjammer and onto the edges of on board microphone on the camera. In my opinion Rycote should do this as standard with self adhesive velcro strips that can be included in the package. It works beautifully! Wind noise is a thing of the past, the only thing to monitor and watch out for at the moment is camera handing noise, but either than that, the onboard microphone together with the Rycote Windjammer is an absolute winner!
