Get Stereo Sound On IPhone Video
The iPhone has a capable video camera -- you can now even add a fisheye lens -- that allows us to upload that cute shot of the kid's first birthday party, but the sound is always hit or miss. So what if you want to do something really slick? That's where the Fostex Ar-4i comes in.
It's basically a binaural mic setup for an iPhone and a hand grip as well, allowing you to point the video and shoot and worry less about the sound -- which will be in stereo, by the way. You can also control the input levels which can help keep that ambient noise down and save a lot of time in the editing process.
It has three 3.5mm input jacks, so you aren't limited to the microphones suppled, connects via USB, and (most convenient) runs on AAA batteries. Another good feature of the handgrip is that it allows for more precise pointing, more akin to a regular camcorder which will help reduce the shakes (as anyone who has watched cell phone video can attest). So say goodbye to muffled and shaky video, and hello to something that looks a lot more professional.
