RØDE recently released an innovative product called smartLav.
It’s a lapel microphone that makes it easy to record to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via the headphone jack.
Take a look at this beauty:
The smartLav can be used in many productions like weddings, lectures, and movies, it is a portable recording solution without any additional hardware. It features an omni-directional microphone which records sound in 360 degrees.
This microphone can be used with the RØDE Rec or RØDE Rec LE apps and ships with a foam wind shield that can be used as pop filter and it also comes with a mounting clip. The RØDE smartLav is a perfect solution for beginning filmmakers and experienced ones who don’t want to have an added expense of additional audio hardware.
I highly recommend this microphone as an additional mic when recording audio. The current retail price is $60 US and $5.99 US for the iPhone app. To find out more by visiting the smartLav website.
