The following is a portable field recording rig I made. An inexpensive Articulating Arm with some Adapters let's me connect my handheld recorder (using the XLR inputs) to my microphone windshield kit/blimp. By doing this, my one hand is free to perform foley etc tasks.
In case you're wondering, the handheld recorder is a Tascam DR-100mkii. Wind protection is Rycote Windshield Kit #10. Inside the winshield is Pearl MS 8 CL ms stereo microphone.
Some Articulating Arms are better others. When you tighten one, it may or may not be tight. You'll want one that stays on very tight.
These adapters are what I bought to make everything fit together.
