      Hello,

      I’m a relative amature to the world of videography. I have a Canon XF 105 and a couple new Sony Alpha DSLRs. I am going to be doing some video and I am looking for a good microphone for my XF video camera.

      All of the shotgun mics I have seen on sites like Amazon are made to fit on shoe mounts. I already have a light on the shoe mount, and I don’t want one of those crazy extender brackets to give you more mounting spots. Are there any decent shotgun mics out there?

      The Canon XF105 manual calls the piece a “microphone holder unit.” Lol, but they don’t sell any accessories for it. Anyone have any thoughts? I don’t need to spend a TON of money, I’m only doing semi-professional work. Couple hundred dollar range perhaps, or less if I can find something good that’s decent quality at a value price.

      Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

      Take a look at the “Coolux light and sound bracket” at B&H. It’s very lightweight, compact, inexpensive and effective. We carry one in every camera bag; couldn’t get along without it.

Best micro four thirds lenses — 2021

MFT, or micro four thirds, is a popular mount style used by many manufacturers in conjunction with the micro 4/3 sensor. It’s good to keep in mind that micro four thirds camera systems use a smaller sensor.
