Rycote 010323 Overview

A Rycote 90° Shortie XLR connector is situated inside the basket, complete with an integral RF shield to protect against the kind of dirty audio attributed to radio interference.

Is it possible to mount this to a cage or other ...

Is it possible to mount this to a cage or other mounting method without the handle, and if so what type of connection does it use?
Asked by: Aaron
So for the record I purchased the older version of this blimp (Rycote S-series) used which uses the same handle mounting method. If you disconnect the handle from the thin plate of metal coming down from the blimp the plate has 7 holes in it. The middle hole which the handle bolts onto is too small for a 1/4-20 thread, but the 6 larger holes ringing it are bigger than a 1/4-20 thread and can be attached to one using a 1/4-20 nut. This allows easy (and low profile) mounting to the side of a camera cage.

Would the shock mount in this kit be good to use by itself, or is it best to use a different shock mount if not intending to use the blimp?
Asked by: Beau
The shock mount included in this blimp kit is very good, and would be find to be used on its own.

Can an Audio Technica BP4025 be used in this blimp?
Asked by: Alberto
The Audio-Technica BP4025 is a front-heavy stereo mic that does not have a specific blimp made for it, but the mic will fit into this Rycote Super Blimp. I would also consider the Rycote Baby Ball Gag Windshield, B&H # RYBBG20 , with a Rycote Windjammer for Baby Ball Gag Windshield, B&H # RYBBGWJ and a shock mount, such as the Rycote Universal Shotgun Mount for Cameras and Boom Poles, B&H # RYUSGM.

Is there a difference in sound quality when comparing the Super-Blimp to the Super-Shield? I noticed the Super-Shield provides protection without high frequency loss, but I didn't see this feature listed with the Super-Blimp?
Asked by: David
Rycote claims that the Super-Blimp is "acoustically transparent", but I have yet to find a test to back this up.

question

Why is this cheaper than the super-shield?
Asked by: Hans
The Rycote super-shield and super-blimp are very similar products; both offering exceptional suspension mechanisms and excellent wind noise reduction. The biggest advantage to the super-shield (and why you pay more) is the attached hand grip. Should you desire to use the mic in a stealth like application, the hand grip will come in very handy- no pun intended.
