DIY Shotgun Microphone (with wind shield & in-built shock mount) Answered

Hey everyone, this is my first post here on Instructables, and I'm here to stay! My name's Matt (hi!), and I have a YouTube account called DIYPerks (like my username). On it I post DIY videos... which is besides the point, so on to what I want to show you...

A while ago I made my own shotgun microphone for my camcorder. It's pretty cheap to build at £12, and sounds great because it's got its own wind cover and in-built shock mount! It's very directional too! I've had several requests about how I built it, so I made this detailed overview video so people will be able to build their own.

I'm posting it here as I think some of you will find it very interesting. :)

Please take a look at tell me what you think!

Nice video! You should add it as an Instructable rather than a forum topic, it'll stick around longer and be more visible on your profile than a forum topic.

To add a video, click the "Create" button up the top of the page, then click the "Get Started" link under the video section.

Hi James, thanks for the compliment! :)

I didn't know that it was possible to post a video like that - thanks for telling me!

Would it matter if it were in two places at once? I mean, will I have to remove this forum post in order that there's no duplicate?

You can leave both up. Forum topics descend into obscurity pretty quickly.
