    I'm looking for a mic holder for these cameras. I use a Beachtek adapter
    and am looking for something to mount the mic with similar to the MA300 but
    without the XLR inputs :-0). Camera and mic would be for tripod use. The
    mic is a RODE NT4.

    The problem with the Rode NT4 is that is is a bit wider than most small
    diapragm condensor mics at about 32 millimeters or so. Your best bet would
    be to find something like a BeyerDyanmic or Sennheiser hotshoe shockmount
    which sells for about $55 USD and mount the mic as far forward on the mount
    as possible to reduce the pickup of camera motor noise, otherwise you could
    also have better results by mounting the mic on a $25 K&H mic boomstand a
    bit further away from the camera motor with a normal (but wide) shockmount
    from Audio Technica or AKG at about $65 USD.

    Thanx Ron. I've done the boom stand for location (shooting a local band in
    concert) It worked great and the sound was very close to the sound of a
    direct feed from the board I used on another channel. I was just looking
    for something a bit more mobile. I'll give those options a look.
