  • Will this adapter hold my handheld recorder securely on the end of a boom ?

    Sorry for such a mundane question. I want to mount my Olympus LS-100 (about 8 ounces I think) on the end of a boom stand so it can nose into tight spots both high and low. Right now I have it on a tabletop tripod.



    Here is the amazon link for the On Stage CM01 adapter:

    What about this Audio-Technica adapter. Would it mount to the end of a boom and hold a recorder with camera threads ?

    Thanks,

    Does the Olympus LS-100 have a threaded receptacle that would connect to an adapter like that?

      I went to the Olympus site and looked up your recorder. It appears to have a stock camera tripod mount on the back:







      As near as I can tell, the Audio Technica adapter is meant for standard 5/8" mic threads at BOTH ends, which is too big for what you have on the back of your recorder. I would try the On Stage Stand adapter that you linked to first - that looks like it should work - it's 5/8" at one end, and the smaller diameter you need for the camera / recorder mount on the other end.

        Thanks Phil. I ordered the boom stand (On Stage) and will order their adapter soon.

            Phil, just thought I'd let you know that the CM01 did the trick. I also got a rolling boom stand with an extension arm. With the LS-100 mounted on the extension arm and the rolling stand, I can easily fine tune the positioning of the recorder.



            Thanks for your advice.

              I use one of thee - fits into the standard threaded hole... http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=REG&A=details



              I think you'd probably have more control with the other one, though.
