With the H4n attached to my shoulder rig or camera I noticed that it does pick up some impact noise from my hands on the other side of the rig.
(Most of the time it's not noticeable.)
For a microphone you usually counter this with a spider mount.
However such mounts seem to exist only for conventional microphones.
Not for field recorders.
Using the microphone-stand adapter of the H4n was no option as the high center of gravity only allows for stationary mounting of the recorder.
Based on the existing inner part for a spider mount for the H4n field recorder,
I designed an outer part to mount it to a 15mm rod system.
In this case, the diagonal rod that holds the handles.
So the field recorder is right in front of your eyes.
I'm reusing two of my universal accessory-holders for 15mm rod support systems:
and I strongly suggest to use my remote handle:
to control the H4n. As any way of touching the recorder would be contrary to the purpose of using a spider mount in the first place.
With another inner part, you can use this to mount other field recorders or microphones to a 15mm rod system too.
You can also use this part to connect the H4n to anything else that has 2
1/4" (or slightly smaller metric) bolts sticking out of it.
Print 2 accessory holders and 2 frames and 1 body.
Use 1 short and 2 long 1/4" bolts (common in photography)
to combine H4n with body and frames to accessory holders.
Use M5x16 wing bolts and M5 nuts to connect the accessory holders to the 15mm rod system of your camera.
You can substitute smaller metric bolts for the connections
of frame to accessory holder.
