Hotshoe adapters for microphone clips

  1. Hi all,
    We are doing some video work using DSLR's and have been working with boom mics plugged into the audio in which work very well. For a single person setup, we'd like to clip the microphone into the hotshoe and use it that way. I can find hotshoe to 1/4" adapters but I cannot for the life of me find a hotshoe adapter to 5/8" which is the standard thread for microphone clips.
    Any ideas? I'm in the UK btw.

  2. If you are using a large microphone I would consider rigging a bracket to hold the microphone. I think you will find it balances better that way. Not that you asked, but that is my observation. And you can find a mic holder with a 5/8 thread arrangement I am sure. Sometimes it takes a couple adapters to get to what you seek. Manfrotto accessories is a good place to start.
  3. Thanks all
