Rycote 010323 Overview

The Super-Blimp NTG from Rycote is a complete windshield and shock-mounting system for the Rode NTG series and similar shotgun microphones. The kit provides patented Lyre Technology and a broadcast industry basket to protect against shocks, vibrations, and wind noise—all with acoustic transparency. A Windjammer, designed to slip over the basket, protects against extreme wind noise.

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. Furthermore, a boom adapter and pistol grip handle are included with the unit. Releasing the microphone from the basket is easy thanks to its quick-release pods.

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?

The shock mount included in this blimp kit is very good, and would be find to be used on its own.
