Rycote 055417 overview

  • 1Description

Designed with 10mm thick synthetic fur, the Rycote Canon XF100 Mini Windjammer has been custom made to fit perfectly over the external, camera-mounted stereo electret condenser microphone on your Canon XF100 HD Professional Camcorder. It has a "medium" windshield rating, which means that it can suppress up to 30dB of distracting wind noise that's inevitable whenever you're shooting outdoors. Overall, the Mini Windjammer reduces the distracting noise and microphone rustling from shooting into a steady breeze or shooting outside when there are bursts of high-gust wind noise. The small-animal aesthetic of Rycote's Mini Windjammers even eliminates much of the harshness associated with vocal plosives. Although it forms a form-fitting and snug bond around your XF100, this Mini Windjammer model also features a touch fastener closure strap that's sure to keep your furry friend tightly secured to your camcorder microphone. Plus, for added flexibility, the Mini Windjammer is designed to fit around the camera-mounted microphone's foam windshield, but the touch fastener allows you to use the wind-dampening synthetic fur with or without the XF100's own microphone foam windshield.

This specific Mini Windjammer model has been designed to form a tight and precise fit around the foam windshield that protects the external, camera-mounted stereo electret condenser microphone on Canon's XF100 HD Professional Camcorder
The Mini Windjammer is constructed from synthetic fur that's 10mm long. The unique material and 10mm thick furry ball contribute to the Mini Windjammer's ability to reduce the effects of wind noise and vocal plosives by approximately 30dB. A reduction of 30dB equals a "medium" windshield rating
The Mini Windjammer's specific slip-on design already fits tightly around the XF100 camera-mounted mic, but for added security, Rycote has equipped each furry windshield with a secure touch fastener closure strap

    Rycote 055417 reviews

    Canon XF100 Mini Windjammer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Best for the price It does well with moderate wind, but gusts and high wind still get through. I would recommend a normal windsock and then modify it to your camera. I am using a Canon XF100.
