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.
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.
