With the $40 iPhone Boom Mic, Your Phone Gets One Step Closer To The Ultimate Pocket Camera
The iPhone Boom Mic is the latest ‘gadget’ to customize your iphone and make it an always in your pocket B-Camera.
Sold by Photojojofor $40 (without shipping), the mic is two directional, needs A4 batteries and is plugged directly to your headphone jack. On a side note the store precises that ‘The iPhone Boom Mic only works with the free ‘Belkin LiveAction App‘”
There hasn’t been any video test out yet, but seeing the friendly price, I’m sure we shouldn’t wait too long for one.
Sound has always been a big issue for independent filmmakers, and even if it’s hard to know if the Boom Mic really does record ‘crisp, clear sound on your iPhone’, the idea of having a mini HD camera with decent sound in your pocket at all time might change a lot of behaviors. Add to that the 50mm lens, and you’re pretty much equipped for urban/gorilla shooting.
All of a sudden capturing moments of life in a very organic has never seemed easier…
I’ll definitely post something as soon as a video and more information are out, so stay tuned.
