Rycote 042901 overview

  • 1Description

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.

19 to 25mm Mounting Cradle
The cradle included with this system accommodates microphone diameters measuring between 19 to 25mm. The interior is treated with a soft-grip surface for a perfect, non-slip fitting

    Rycote 042901 reviews

    InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Panasonic DMW-MS2 The Panasonic DMW-MS2 microphone for the Panasonic DMC-GH3 camera does not have a shock mount and therefore picks up significant handling noise. So I was looking for a shock mount that would also fit the odd design of the DMW-MS2. The InVision Video shock mount adapter seems to fit the microphone perfectly and provide good reduction in handling noise. The only downside is that the stock Panasonic windscreen doesn't completely fit when using the InVision Video adapter so may want something like a Rycote 033042 windscreen to go with it. The Rycote doesn't cover the top stereo mic, but I don't really use that so it didn't matter to me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not crazy about it Using on 5D mk3 with 416. This is a medium weight mic, and the thing sags seriously. Like, it's at least 15 degrees off axis. That's not good. Secondly, it's hard to get a secure fit. Both screws tighten fairly well, but not securely with a 416. Maybe you're supposed to be using a cheaper/lighter mic, but I was expecting more given the glowing reviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Canon C100 I own a C-100, just purchased a Sennheiser MKE 600 which would not fit the handle mic holder. I didn't want to use o-rings or tape buildup. I removed the mic mount from the handle with 2 screws and put this on the cold shoe. More reach and more angles. Love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on-camera shockmount out there Although more expensive than your typical hot shoe shockmount, the InVision Video puts Rycote's patented lyre suspension technology into a well-designed package. Sure I could have spent half this price for a Rode SM3 and maybe even less for an Azden (both use elastic bands that are nowhere near indestructible like the Rycote), but I wanted quality. If you want the best, you have to pay more. Simple as that. Of course any pro would tell you that mounting a mic on camera is a big no-no, but for many of us who shoot videos on the run while on vacation, spending time with family, hanging out with friends, or anything else where a boom is not practical a shockmount like the InVision Video does the job really well. For booming purposes, you can always buy an adapter for this mount from Rycote, which gives it more flexibility. The only gripe I have about this mount, however, is the cable clamp is way too stiff. If I tried to fit an XLR cable it may break if I applied too much force. Fortunately, Rycote has recently done something about this and is now adding a newly designed cable clamp to answer this problem. All InVision Videos will be packaged with this new design soon and for us existing owners, we would have to contact Rycote for this replacement clip. Once they send them out, they can easily be screwed near the end of the bridge next to the existing clamp. On to the Pros and Cons Pros: great isolation, superior handling noise reduction, holds mic firmly, maneuverable, virtually indestructible, no need for replacement bands, boom mounting capable (with an adapter) Cons: The only con I have with this is now fixed (i.e. the cable clamp) So if you're on the lookout for a shockmount that could be mounted on camera or on a boom, get the InVision Video. You won't regret it. Trust me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Highly recommended! This not only supports the mic more securely than some of the banded models and eliminates camera/lens noises, it also holds the mic off center of the camera hot shoe with a threaded fastener. This enables you to add a Ninja Blade on top of the hot shoe as well, keeping the overall footprint smaller.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put this purchase off... shouldn't have For some years now I have been using the typical rubber band/o-ring shock mounts. They work superbly... until you find that the bands have broken. That usually is noticed on the day of the wedding, graduation, etc. I knew of the Rycote mounts, but thought they were a bit out of my range. So I put off buying one. Big mistake. The peace of mind that results from not worrying about broken bands is worth a lot to me now. As for which system works better, well, I can't prove the difference in any scientific way, but I think I would have to cast my vote for the English-made Rycote. I am currently using this mic holder on my trusty rusty FX1, and it gets the mic away from the LCD screen mounted topside. Love it. And the old Sony!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I bought this to replace the cheap shock mount that came with the videomic pro. This mount is sturdier, more durable, more accessibility, and very easy to setup. Say good-bye to those rubber bands and hello to rycote's incision shock mount. Only con is that it's a bit pricey, but this is the best alternative out there.
    Date published: 2013-02-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good isolation, straightforward solution Use: On-camera substitution for Canon XL mic mount; used in conjunction with shotgun mics. Pros: Markedly improved mic isolation over Canon's mic holder on XL series equipment; securely grips mics; versatile axial positioning of mic; relatively unobtrusive. Although I wouldn't recommend it as standard practice, I was astonished to discover that I could get away with mounting the Canon XL mic without any problems. Cons: A bit pricey.
