Accessory Mounting Bracket

[Table of Contents][Make a Contribution]
Your camcorder may not have an accessory shoe at all (like my Canon ZR500), or if it does, probably only one. So how will you attach the miniature zoom microphone and the light? With a camcorder accessory mounting bracket! The mounting bracket has two accessory shoes, which allows you to attach the miniature zoom microphone and the light. The mounting bracket itself attaches to the bottom screw mount on the camcorder, and can be mounted between the camera and tripod. Another benefit of the mounting bracket is that it serves as a handle for your left hand, allowing you to hold the camera steadily with two hands. This potentially reduces the necessity of carrying a tripod, though a tripod is still highly recommended.
