Adapter from microphone-clip to camera mount?

Does someone here know what kind of adapter I need to attach a mic with a microphone clip to a camera mount?

I have a S502 stereo mic with a microphone clip, it has the standard mic-clip to attach it to a standard microphone stativ, the mixpre has the option to mount a camera on top.

I want exactly this configuration:

Here's a 5/8" to hot shoe adapter if this is what you want.

Another option is to use a camera cage if you want to mount more weight than the hot shoe can handle.

The lower row of adapters in the picture has a double threaded barrel...inner thread is camera 1/4", outer is mic clip thread 3/8" The other adapters come in handy too when mixing and matching, so buy the complete set !

As photographed, your mic doesn't look able to resist shock/vibration very well, and easy to knock the whole assembly to the floor with a careless elbow swipe...! Quite compact and portable however...

Thanx a lot for your help! I don't want a hot-shoe adapter. After looking for a longer time, I found out that Manfrotto makes an adapter for this purpose. In case someone else is looking for a solution. I know it's a bit fragile, but it is just for a quick no hassle solution to get better audio than from the camera mic. BTW this 120,- mic is incredible for the price.

It has reliability issues and terrible wiring standards
Its pretty unsuitable for a camera mount
Needs a Rycote invision and some gagging
