If I understood your previous post correctly, I think something that attaches directly to the iPhone won't work for you.Smith wrote:Thanks Frank, I watched the video in the above post with the apogee mic. I really liked the sound of that mic, so I watched a review of it on YouTube. I see that it is 199.99. I've also been looking at the zoom iq5. It is 99.99 but it is on backorder around here. It looks like the zoom iq5 plugs directly into the iphone5, while the apogee mic has a cord so you can move it around. Also, what the reviewer says about how it would be nice if there was a headphone jack for monitoring makes sense, I guess.
I seem to recall reading about the zoom iq5 elsewhere here so I think I will look around.
I liked the arrangement and performance of what I gather is a traditional Celtic Air.
The problem is the video has to be too far away. I don't know if any mic will have the sensitivity required to give you good volume at that distance. You'd need to either move the mic closer via a cable or run the mic through a pre-amp, again via cable.
I have a Zoom Q3HD and ran into the same problem you did. By the time I moved the unit far enough away to get me in frame, the audio was way too weak, even at maximum gain.
