    I got my ntg-3 in the mail today and my K-Tek K-Mount is too big for it. So my question is:

    What shock mount should I get? I already have the blimp on the way too.

    My current idea is this:

    Any other mounts worth considering that will fit the ntg-3 (diameter of 19mm)

    The blimp should have a shock mount that can be used with or without the blimp.

    Yes, the blimp has a very nice shock mount.

    I am a few days behind you on ordering this mic. I placed my order today on the NTG-3 and sent in the serial # for the blimp. Should get the NTG-3 Thursday.Rode said it would take 6-12 weeks for delivery on the Blimp. Could you keep me updated as to when you get yours. I hope it doesn't take that long. Thanks for all the posts about the NTG-3. I feel like I got a good deal and liked getting the boom pole and Blimp in the deal. JB

    I ordered my Rode blimp on 14-Dec-09 and it arrived 11 days later (shipped from California).
    Recording audio without metering and monitoring is exactly like framing and focusing without looking at the viewfinder.

    While the blimp will come with a mount, if you need another one to use besides that one for some reason the Rycote InVision series (use #7 for the NTG3) is superb and cheaper than the one you linked to by more than a third.

    I ordered the NTG-3 as well, I am going to pick up either the Oktava MK012A or the AKG SE300B/CK93. Do I need to get an additional shock mount or can I just use the blimp's mount all around?
