I know there are a lot of options out there for hybrid photographers, like myself, to capture really good audio. Really, I know that there are a lot of options because I think I’ve researched pretty much all of them! I knew that my audio setup needed to have three things: 1) portable 2) simple to use 3) a lav mic that is easily hidden. I came up with my own kit that I’m really happy with and meets my requirements.
Take a look at how I combine an omni-directional lav mic, an analogue-to-digital (A/D) converter, and my iPhone to give me a simple to use and quality audio kit. All for well under $150.
