    Azden SMH-1 reviews

    SMH-1 Shock Mount for Shotgun Mics is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid accessory This is a simple, solid accessory, especially for HDSLR video shooters who are ready to graduate to pro quality microphones mounted on the camera. I use mine with the Audio-Technica AT897 shotgun. While there are a number of shock mounts available, I like this one for its price vs. build quality. Since there are a variety of mounting schemes used by HDSLR videographers, the limited height this mount gives isn't really an issue. It also has a couple of threaded holes for other mounting options forward of the built-in shoe mount. Might be nice if the attached mount could adjust, but I haven't really found a need for that yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, inexpensive Used for HDSLR videography with a Sennheiser ME66 mounted on a shoulder rig. I also have a Rhode shock mount; I've already fixed the broken lock nut for the angle adjuster on the Rhode. The Azden doesn't have an angle adjuster making it more sturdy. I'm also less afraid I'm going to break the circular cage when I travel as I don't use much padding in my bags. The only drawback is this wouldn't be as great for use on a boom because there isn't an angle adjuster and you need a cold shoe mount to attach it; the inside of the cold shoe is not threaded (the Rhode is, but you'd be wise to have a thread bushing 3/8-1/4 in your bag).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Improved noise reduction but not perfect Mounted to a Canon HV20 and it helps quell the camera noise, however it's not perfect. It's hard to quantify the effect it has but I'd say it knocks it down 80%. It still picks up a bit of zoom servo noise (but only on high speed zoom) and it also picks up the spinning tape head. Focus noise is imperceptible. Camera buttons are still telegraphed to the microphone thru the mount. This is not a cure all for this particular camera. I bought a Sima video bracket @ and it seems to have just about solved the camera noise issue. I use an Azden SMX-10 mounted to the Azden shockproof mount, mounted to the Sima video bracket.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Small I bought this to use with a normal shotgun mic and a small 4 sony shotgun on my DSLR. I found the rubber bands to be VERY stiff and hold both mics far too tight. As a result they provided very little shock absorption. I took it back to B&H and talked to the audio guy there, I went with the AT8415 which is larger, has a tilting head, and MUCH softer bands, and worked with both of my mics. Spend the money, get the AT8415, or just DIY with PVC and rubberbands, either will be better than this. Also, their is no threaded mounting holes anywhere on the bottom, even though the images suggest their might.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, durable and inexpensive! Nothing special but got the job done. Was sturdy & robust. It's black in color. (B&H image looked like it was green to me)I use this with a small sony NX30U and actually mount a 300 lumin flash light with a diffusion filter in the holder which makes a great setup in documenting low light situations during event videography. I sometimes use the shock mount as a handle/grip and camera is securely attached.Mount also came with some replacement rubber bands that I have placed in storage as the ones originally mounted are very durable. Don't see how they would break. Perhaps with time, the rubber will deteriorate?A very good value for the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly Comes with a couple extra rubberband things in case one breaks. I like that it's directional, that way for a really long mic you can mount it backwards (with the mic forward obviously) in order to move the mic further back and out of your shot. I can't justify the high priced options. This works perfectly. Side note: With my AT8035 connected to my 60D via Pearstone LMT-100 transformer cable, I was getting lots of hiss, so in general, I wouldn't recommend on camera mics for pro use unless you can pump the signal from the mic, and turn down the audio level on your camera (a la Videomic Pro) which I now use instead.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good while they last, but they don't I've now owned two of these, and both have failed at a certain point. While it's a good mount when it works, the problem with both of them is that the screw on the bottom eventually (for some reason) will no longer hold. This causes the mic to fall into frame, and no matter how many times I try to tighten the screw, it still comes loose. I've ended up having to try to secure it with gaffer's tape, and am so frustrated at this point I'm going to buy another brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, as advertised. This shock mount works great for my rode mic.. I have it connected to my canon t3i and it works without any problems.. i would recommend it
