The SM5 is a suspension shock mount with ring clamp adaptor that allows the use of RØDE Microphones to be used with professional video cameras. It supports camera clamp mounts that effectively grip a 24 or 27mm barrel. Most cameras feature rubber pads inside the ring clamp to allow for some tolerance in barrel size. The design of the suspension shock mount means the microphone is physically isolated from the stand ensuring that there is no unwanted rumble or vibrations in your recording. 1/4″ and 3/8″ threads at the base of the mount allow for easy attachment to a boompole or other accessories.
