Mic Mount

ATTN: Filmmakers and Camera guys!!!! ?

I have a Canon XL1 with a stereo mic mounted on it, and the mic has a two prong jack. I want to find an extension cord so that I can boom pole the mic. Is this possible? And do you know where I can find a cord?
Thanks!
10 Points for best answer! Come on guys, I need an answer!

That 2-prong jack that the XL1's included stereo mic uses is not a "standard" mic connection method used by today's camcorders - if you want a longer cable in-between the XL1 and that mic, you're going to have to make a cable or buy two indivitual cables with the correct connectors (check with Radio Shack or Fry's Electronics). Because the cable run will be longer than 15-20 feet, be sure you use shielded cable if you go this route.

The XL1 also has a 1/8" audio-in connector. You can use this instead of the two-prong jacks and use another manufacturer's mic. The BEST method - if you need a shotgun mic at the end of a boom pole - will be to use an XLR based mic, connected to an XLR adapter (like those from juicedLink or BeachTek), then the XLR adapter plugs into the XL1's 1/8" stereo audio in jack.

In either case, when you mount the mic to the boom pole, use of a Shock Mount is strongly recommended. The Sabra SMM-1 (Guitar Center) is a universal shockmount... you will also want to investigate a better windscreen than a foam one - the zepellin (also called a "dead cat") will provide a LOT better wind-moise reduction than the foam wind screens.
