The Rode SM5 is a suspension mount for shotgun, or similarly sized microphones. The design features a cylindrical clamp mount adapter that measures 1.06 inches (27mm) in diameter. The clamp mount adapter fits into the cylindrical clamp mounts found on professional video cameras; such as those found on some Panasonic and Sony models.
The four-way rubber suspension bands provide a secure hold on most shotgun microphones and minimize inherent noise due to handling and vibration. In addition, the SM5 features a two-way mounting system with 1/4" x 20 and 3/8" x 16 internal threads for Tripod and Boom Pole mounting.
