I’ve been playing with the 3D printer again, and I’ve printed a shockmount for a Rode Videomic Me, with an integrated shockmount.
I’ve made a video of the device, which you can see here:
The original version of the clip can be found on Thingiverse HERE. Note that this isn’t my model, I was just fortunate enough to find a model that fits what I was trying to do perfectly.
The clip turned out really well, But I had to add a small square of double sided foam at the bottom of the spring part, I can dampen the vibrations that were present in the clip without it.
Once you have the microphone, and the shockmount, you’ll need a cable that adapts from the smartphone TRRS, to your camera’s input, which is generally a stereo TRS 3.5mm input. Thankfully, Rode make such a cable -The Rode SC3 – which for mycamera, is a perfect length.
If you want to save a few dollars, you can search on ebay or your favorite store for a similar cable. You’ll generally find ones with 2 male jacks, one for the microphone, and one for headphones. Just use the Microphone one, and tuck the other end out of the way
Here are a couple of ebay links to the two mentioned devices. They are Ebay Australia links, and I’ll stat that I have no affiliation with either sellers.
Rode SC3 adapter cable (an Australian store, selling for $15aud):
Cheap ebay adapter (an Australian store, selling 2 for $5.95aud):
This setup works really well, and now I can use the microphone on my smartphone, and on my EOS-M, or other video cameras.
I hope you find this interesting, and will come back again soon.
