Kirk Flash Grip Adds Shotgun Mic Attachment

According to Kirk, the idea to change the grip to add mic support came from a customer.
“We’ve added a threaded rod and knurled locking ring to the top of the Action Grip, thus allowing hot shoe attachments of a flash or shotgun mic,” explained Jeff Kirk, President of Kirk Enterprises.
“The AG-1 is ultra-lightweight, balanced and now, so flexible it’s really a joy to work with. It’s especially nice for guys who use digital cameras with high-def video capabilities.”
The AG-1 Action Grip is made from aluminum and stainless steel to maintain its light weight and durability.
The new attachment uses a ¼ x 20 stud with a knurled-knob locking ring mounted on top of a comfy foam-padded handle. As previously, the AG-1 can mount to any camera or tripod using an Arca-style mounting plate.
