The iPhone 5’s capable of capturing really impressive video with its 8MP camera but the accompanying sound quality isn’t all that great. But with this new add-on mic from Zoom, your iPhone 5 videos will finally have the audio they deserve.
The iQ5 is a Mid-Side stereo mic compatible with iOS 6.0 and above, connecting through an 8-pin Lightning port. It’s central recording element rotates so you can film in both landscape and portrait. It can also be adjusted to pull both 90-degree and 120-degree fields as well as straight RAW audio and captures at 16-bit 44.1kHz.
It will retail for $US100 when it hits shelves later this year. Maybe Blue Microphones will have an updated version of its MIkey out before then.
