OT: Sony Camera Mic Foam?

VMP wrote on 12/28/2015, 12:31 PM
I lost the stock black shotgun foam of my Sony HXR NX5.


Do you know how I can purchase the original foam?

The mic is the ECM-XM1 according to the link above.
I don't know the part number of the foam.

I already have a large wind shield/cat hair type shield.

But I would like to have the original foam for normal usage.

Why don't you just buy another one and throw away the camera?
I don't see any original foam, but this one looks similar.

Windtech http://www.windtech.tv/WindTech_Windcreens_Home_Pa.php (and others) make replacement foam windscreens for most microphones

Jamon, thanks.
Lol your first line is a joke right? :-)



I also found this one from Rycote: http://www.cameranu.nl/nl/p412264/rycote-foam-shotgun-mic-19-18

The measurement of my mic is 10.5 cm with a diameter of 2 cm.
According to this chart from Windtech: http://www.windtech.tv/uploads/WindTech_Shotgun_Specs_11_12_15.pdf
the one compatible is http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/331964-REG/WindTech_SG_150_SG_150_Shotgun_Microphone_Windscreen.html

Thanks Arthur,

I think I am going to go with this one http://www.bax-shop.nl/windkappen/rycote-schuimen-windkap-voor-shotgun-microfoon-19-10cm?gclid=CJy6pYnj_8kCFeoJwwodYigDdw

It's 10 cm, and fits 19-20mm.

The price is ok too.
