    Cool-Lux MD3000 Reviews

    MD-3000 Light and Sound Bracket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 119.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, simple solution Turning one hot shoe into two cold shoes may not seem like an obvious 5 out of 5 stars, but in reality it's a real quality improvement. For me, the big deal is getting my shotgum mike (a Rode NTG-2 I purchased here) away from the camera's tape deck. The noise, you see, is sufficient to be audible on the recorded work, and I am really shooting for a nice, clean sound to match the amazing images taken with my Canon HV20. The result? The sound is perfect. The bracket really sings -- simple, one piece construction, knurled knob makes for easy tightening and loosening, and the different heights make for a useful second shoe location. No cons, for this use. It really is a terrific purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, simple bracket. Well designed. Simple but well designed. The two different heights make perfect sense once you try putting both a light and a mic on there and they seem to be well spaced for the task. I didn't get any noticeable shadow from the mic, so the alignment seems well thought out. Also, on my HDR-AX2000 (and probably similarly designed Sony cameras), it puts the mic in a location where you can easily open and close the view screen. Without the bracket, the back of the mic and the cord were in the way because of the placement of the shoe. Finally, the construction is nice. Good, solid metal so I have no worries about this thing breaking on me one day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh yeah, the possbilities My old, but trusty Sony HDR-FX1e has pretty poor mic.. So I use external Rode microphone but then I can't use on-camera lighting kits. I've considered selling the camera and buying a new Sony camera... But luckily, with bit of research, I found the MD-3000 bracket on few websites.. With the MD-3000 bracket, I can have both on camera lighting and Rode mic at the same time. The bracket is not too large, and it's very sturdy. If you are looking for a bracket that is worth much more than it's price, than this is it. I recommend it to anyone who finds themselves choosing either mic or lighting kit for video shoot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bracket I use this to mount a light and microphone to my compact video camera. There really isn't much to this product, but it is very solid and works very nicely for my setup. I wish the spread of the two brackets was just a little wider because in some setups my microphone is just a tad in the light output (causing a slight shadow, but not terrible). However, a wider spread could cause balance issues. Overall I like this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what I need it to accomplish... I purchased the MD-3000 bracket for use on my Sony Handycam for the purpose of holding a shotgun mic. The reason for the bracket was so I could use the mic and be able to change cassett tapes easier. I looked everywhere for a bracket and B&H was the only jobber that had what I needed. The extra shoe will allow me the opportunity to fix a portable light for lighting subjects I am videoing. The price was right for my budget ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I purchased this because I needed something to lift my Rode Stereo Video Mic up just a little on my Canon MV200i since some of the 'dead kitten' wind cover tended to get in the frame. It certainly does the trick - the mic sits up just high enough on the lower bracket to clear the frame, the offset position doesn't unbalance the camera significantly and the bracket is so light it doesn't add much weight to the combination at all. All of my shooting is done outside so no need for an additional light but its nice to know one could be attached if required. Just one piece of constructive criticism: it would be nice if the two 'shoes' had stoppers like most other shoes but I suppose the intention is to make the bracket bi-directional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE answer to wide angle light source When shooting video with a wide angle lens the on-camera video light doesn't have enough clearance and casts a shadow on the footage. The Cool Lux light and sound bracket (with light attached) is the answer to cleaner shots with wide angle. Also it cost much less than expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! This bracket is lightweight, durable, and small. The double tier bracket can be used flipped left or on the right side. The double tier allow for the mic and light not to get in the way of filming the subject. Good experience.
