Hi, I just purchased a Canon XA20 and with it I purchased a Rode Shotgun mic. Problem is the diameter of the microphone is too narrow to be firmly attached into the micrphone holder on the handle.
Any suggestions? Thanks!

I am going the wrap my mic with a piece of gaffers tape.

I did read elsewhere that a certain size "o" ring works well and adding several makes the connection nice and tight. Have to find the right size again.

I just got my xa20 today and noticed the same problem. The shotgun mic is not nice and tight in the holster and can easily slide around. To make it tight all I did was put the shotgun mic in the holster and then ran the xlr wire through it also. The wire was enough to fill the gap and make the mic tight.
