Recording quality sound on your iPhone

The problem of recording good quality sound always pops up when you are shooting with consumer HD cameras, including top end HD DSLR’s. However, because these cameras have been around a while many solutions to this problem are available, see my earlier blog on Shooting HD video on your HD DSLR.

But what if you are shooting a movie or an interview on your newly minted iPhone and you need pro quality sound? The iPhone’s internal mic just won’t cut it, so how do you record great sound on this little wonder? The answer to this is simple; you could use the same solution that is available for HD cameras or simply hook up your own external XLR microphone to your iPhone using the right adaptor cable for the job.

Need the right adaptor? Look no further than There are other adaptors on the market, but I have been told this one works!
