Without good audio video content basically becomes useless. Like a DSLR camera, you can use an external microphone with an iPhone to improve the audio recording in videos.
The Rode VideoMic Me-L
is a small but mighty directional microphone. This lightning port mic comes highly recommended for iPhone users and is available at Apple
, and Best Buy
. Compared to other external microphones for iPhone, the Rode Mic is discrete, portable, and fairly priced.
This directional microphone for iPhone works by eliminating background noise and focusing on the subject in front of the camera. It comes with a furry windshield that stops the mic from picking up wind noise. The Me-L has an update that includes a 3.5mm headphone jack which creates the option to monitor audio.
Using the clip the Rode VideoMic can be snapped onto an iPhone or iPad. It can be used with any IOS device with a lightning connector or with IOS 11. Like the SANDMARC lens attachments, this mic comes with a lightweight aluminum body that protects it from wear and tear.
This particular microphone is valuable due to its compact size, impressive quality, and the included accessories. This external microphone retails for around $80+ tax. This isn’t too expensive considering the Rode VideoMic comes in a three piece kit with a windshield and mount.
