Hello. My Instructable is about how to build a microphone boom that attaches to your camera's tripod connector. I did this so that the noise produced by my camcorder's tape would not be picked up on my microphone.
Step 1: You Will Need...
- Red (or any colour) insulation tape
- Two tripod ball bearing joints (harvested from old poundland tripods)
- Araldite super glue (or equivalant)
- A piece of tubing long enough to be out of the way of the camcorders LCD screen. Also helps if it can fit snuggly inside the ball bearing housing.
Step 2: Assembly 1
Step 3: Assemby 2
Step 4: Astetics
You can also use the "hot shoe" connection on the top of the camera instead of the second ball bearing mount to free up the tripod mount at the bottom for, you guessed it, a tripod!
**quarter inch bolts can be bolted through the pipe instead of the ball bearing mounts at the ends.
