Smartphone Video Microphone Kit with LED Light, Product Overview


A general overview of what this product is best used for and about goes as follows. This product is created so that anyone can use their mobile phone to create an electronic medium for the recording, copying, playback, broadcasting, and display of moving visual media while being supported by a stationary prop, this tri-pod product.

Most camera phones are more simple than separate digital cameras. Their usual fixed-focus lenses and smaller sensors limit their performance in poor lighting. Lacking a physical shutter, some have a long shutter lag. Photo-flash is typically provided by an LED source which illuminates less intensely over a much longer exposure time, but the LED light that comes with this product allows you to not have to take unnecessary power from your mobile phone for lighting.

This microphone sure does come in handy, not only does it support all smartphones that come with 3.5mm audio input jack. It can be used for interviews, films, and behind the scenes footage.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

PRO #1: Great device…but!

The tripod stand serves better as a selfie handle than a tripod, but it’s not bad enough to give it a negative review. It is sturdy and holds well.

PRO #2: Absolutely essential for anyone who makes film with DSLR or phone!

I have been looking at camera accessories for a long time. I do spend a significant amount of money in these, so cost was an issue. This item is fairly priced and works like a charm.
Advantages:
1. Covers it all; a mic, a light (brighter than I thought it would be), phone mounts, carrying case for mic, you name it!
2. Good quality mic, definitely an upgrade for a mic in your camera.
3. Very bright LED, works with two AA batteries.
4. Phone mount is amazingly rugged.
The only complaint that I had was, it should have included combo bag so all of it can be transported in one complete package.

PRO #3: Almost a complete kit for V-logging

I use this for my YouTube videos. Easy to set up, sturdy stand, lots of adapters to make things work, but it’s missing one thing to make it a complete kit: 3.5mm to Lightning. This kit is complete if you have a phone with a 3.5mm audio port, but if you have a Lightning port device with no 3.5mm audio port, then you will need to get one. For me, I got a Dodo-cool one.

The microphone works well, but I don’t think it makes my audio sound any better for my use (I don’t sing indoors). If you were doing outdoors or if you sing indoors, then the included dead cats (microphone muffs) should help reduce the wind noise and maybe even reduce heavy breathing noise 😀

The phone mount is pretty good. Has two screw holes: 1 on the stand and one on the holder itself (the arms).

The light is decent, but feels cheap and doesn’t have any warm light option. It’s just cool light (white light). It uses two AA batteries. If you put the light on the stand by itself, you can use it as a work light.

 

PRO #4: Pleasantly surprised!

As usual, I spent an inordinately large amount of time sifting through various options. I finally landed on this one because the price seemed right compared to buying the components individually. The quality is solid. I use it for acting auditions, and some of the places I’ve paid to tape at aren’t this good.

The light is adjustable and impressive. Maybe I’ll get an additional ring light to eliminate shadow, but I dunno. The main disappointing thing is the tripod, which is mostly useless, but I Jerry-rigged a way to attach it to a different tripod, so I’m happy.

 


The Bad:

CON #1: Light sucks; microphone doesn’t do anything

The light is good but I can hardly get through filming one video without the batteries dying, making inconsistent lighting in my videos. I’m not kidding, it take 2 AA batteries and I have to change them almost every time.
then the microphone does NOTHING. YES it is plugged in. I have the correct adapter for my iPhone, and when it’s plugged in I take a video and tap the microphone. Listen back to video and I can HEAR the microphone so I know it’s working. But when I play back my YouTube videos it sounds EXACTLY like having NO microphone at all.
The tripod works ok but it’s still flimsy and not worth $50 since the other gear doesn’t work.

CON #2: Bummed out for sure

My kids and I bought this so we could do some fun YouTube videos. The stand is nice and the microphone has worked in all instances that we have needed it for.

The light didn’t work on arrival. I have no plans to return as I don’t want to return the whole thing. 50$ for a stand and a microphone is rather hefty.

Who is Smartphone Video Microphone Kit with LED Light For?


This product is for anyone who is interested in digital recording, using audio signals picked up by a microphone or other transducer or video signals picked up by a mobile phone that are converted into a stream of discrete numbers, representing the changes over time in air pressure for audio, and chroma and luminance values for video, then recorded to a storage device.

To play back a digital sound recording, the numbers are retrieved and converted back into their original analog wave-forms so that they can be heard through a loudspeaker. To play back a digital video recording, the numbers are retrieved and converted back into their original analog wave-forms so that they can be viewed on a video monitor, television or other display.

My Final Opinion of Smartphone Video Microphone Kit with LED Light


NOTE: You HAVE to plug the mic into the dongle, then plug the dongle into the phone and make sure it’s fully plugged in (you’ll feel it connect). If you plug in the dongle first then plug in the mic, it probably won’t work. Make sure you are within a foot or so of the mic and are directly in front of it, once you nail the proximity, the mic is spectacular!

The light is super bright, so make sure the switch is turned OFF before you install the batteries! If you install the batteries while the switch is on, the light won’t come on.

To some, the tripod stand may serve better as a selfie handle than a tripod, but it is sturdy and holds very well, If properly set up, this seems to be a pretty good product for the money. As I stated before, you get what you pay for. This really is Not a bad product for the money and may be one of the best for newbies to start with.

  2. I do a lot of recording on my phone for work and have used smartphone tripods but they’ve been quite fiddly and not as sturdy as I would like. I’ve been looking at mics too but wasn’t aware you could get lights as well. 

    Buying all of these separately would cost quite a bit but the fact you can get them all in one pack must save you money. By the sound of your review it looks like this could be worth checking out. 

    Thanks for the info!
