The Voice Technologies VT5000 Shotgun Microphone with Video Hot Shoe Shock Mount Kit comes with a Rycote Invision video hot shoe shock mount, a Rycote softie windshield with 10 cm hole, a Cable Techniques coiled 6" to 18" 3-pin XLR male to XLR female microphone cable, and a Rycote foam windscreen. The kit is designed so that you can mount the shotgun microphone on the hot shoe of your video camera or video-capable digital camera for improved sound when shooting video. The shock mount allows you to connect the shotgun microphone to the camera and reduces handling noise. The foam windscreen and softie windshield reduce the influence of wind and ambient noise on your recording. The XLR cable allows you to connect the microphone to your camera or portable audio recorder.

InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount
The InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension from Rycote slides into the hot shoe mount of most commercial camcorders to hold microphones with diameters from 19-25mm, while protecting against camera motor noise and vibrations. It is designed to enable camcorder users and videographers to capture the best possible sound for their productions using external camera-mounted microphones.
The InVision Video uses the patented Lyre Suspension webs with a molded grip design to prevent your mic from slipping or twisting. For ease in finding the right mounting position, the InVision Video rotates freely 360° on a slotted 4" (100mm) mounting bar. The cradle can slide freely on this slotted bar to keep your mic out of the shot.
