Finally! I have the pics available of the super 8 blimp (M2K-S8) and are available at

This blimp will cut out about 85% of your camera noise (depending on the camera). I ran it six feet away from a shotgun mic. indoors and you couldn't hear anything.

Again, these blimps are custom made to YOUR camera. Email me for details if your interested.

I'm interested to see what a Nizo 6080 version would look like. The camera doesn't need as much padding and so a lighter version that allowed access to the main control features would be something nice to see. 'll probably stick with my sweatshirt untill I see an example. Looks good though.

These pics will give everyone an idea of what the completed products looks like. Obviously there will have to be some cosmetic changes to accomodate variouse cameras, however the basic body will look like this.

Also remember, that these are custom to your camera. So, if you need access to something - lets say your footage counter - we can make the appropriate changes.

As far as the Nizo 4080 and 6080 models are concerned, I doubd very seriously that they'd need one because they are already so quiet. I've never had to quite my 4080. But is someone wanted one, I could oblige.

Thanks a bunch guys and gals!

Phil F. :D
