Rycote 037324 overview

  • 1Description

The Rycote Softie Lyre Mount with MHR replaces the built-in or accessory mic mount on your camera. It includes three sets of metric screws as well, which allow it to be connected directly to most common camcorders, including the Panasonic DVX-series, Sony NXCAM, DSR, HVR, PMW and HDR-series, many Canon X-series models and more.

The mount uses Rycote's patented Lyre technology and the durable W-shaped Lyre clips are made of hard-wearing and heat-resistant thermoplastic. Plus, the mic clip dramatically reduces the effects of unwanted noise caused by vibrations. The mount is particularly effective at reducing or eliminating lens motor and cable-borne noise. It can also be rotated and tilted freely on any axis, and may be stored in bags with a mic still fitted. The mount can be removed quickly as well.

    Softie Lyre Mount with MHR is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG What Was I Waiting For? I just purchased two of these for my cameras (Sony PMW-EX1 and Sony FS-7). I've had both of these cameras for years and have struggled with less than perfection from the factory mounts. I am totally pleased with the build quality AND the flexibility of use for new these mounts. I've only had them for a couple of weeks, but here's what I like so far: -they are durable as heck -they are adjustable on two planes so that I can maneuver the mic position from high (above the lens) to low and outside (away from the hand grip. -easily adjustable (with no need to remove) for dropping the camera into tight bags -extraneous sound reduction- properly tight and flexible fit so there is no clanking or other noises to distract from the sound in front of my microphones. I use these easily with my Sennheiser ME66 and Rode NG2 shotguns.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well with Canon XF305 and a Neumann KMR81 shotgun It works better than the accessory mount that comes with the XF305. It is in two pieces -- the attachment to the camera, and a shotgun shock mount. The mounting bracket attaches directly to the camera in the same place that the Canon accessory mount does, but it is a smaller scale and so can be kept on the camera permanently without danger of loss or damage. The shotgun shock mount attaches to it. It's a very good design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit for my Panasonic UX180 I use a Sanken stereo shotgun mic (CMS-10). This mount replaces the original Panasonic microphone mount - which cannot be used - as the Sanken can be seen at 24mm setting. Using this mount pushes the Sanken further away from the body - and now the mic now no longer appears in the video.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good quality but it does not fit well. I bought it with the intention to replace the mic holder on a Canon XF 300, and frankly I cannot recommend this product for that purpose. Here are the reasons: 1) The bracket cannot be mounted solidly enough on the camera with the screws provided. They seem to be somewhat smaller and jiggle in the thread. Alas, the original screws from the canon camera cannot be used either because they don't fit through the bracket at the distance required for location of the sockets on the camera. 2) So I modified the bracket by widening the screw slots with a drill until I could use the original screws and securely fasten the mic bracket. 3) However, once I placed the mic holder on the bracket and tested it with an shotgun mic, I noticed that the arm is way too flexible which makes the entire contraption vibrate to an extend that I think would affect the video footage during shooting, especially on the tripod. 4) All this is really disappointing, because I bought this mic mount precisely because this company shows a picture on one of their boxes with this mic mount attached to a Canon XF300! 5) I'll keep it anyway and use it for other purposes. Possible that it fits a C300 or whatever just fine.
