I am looking at this shotgun mic and I am making a boom pole from this video. I know there is a mic adapter and shock mount in that video, but since the shotgun mic comes with a shock mount, what mounting adapter/connector do I need for the shotgun mic to connect to the boom pole?

If you're on a budget, and if you are making your own boom pole - I'm assuming you are, you could try this...

I'd gaff tape it for insurance.

Yes, I am making my own boom pole. I could use a hot shoe, but I'd rather not as it's not as good quality audio (I also have two cameras) – daviesgeek Aug 25 '11 at 19:43
