Good... but just spend an extra $50 and get the VideoMic
on December 19, 2014
It works, but you need to make sure the 3.5mm plug really is plugged ALL THE WAY in in order for this to work. I shot some video with my DSLR and found that almost all of it was without sound because it wasnt all the way in.
This wont work with apps on your iphone/ipad I think because it isn't powered (phantom power) I tried it with the regular video apps as well as Filmic Pro and got nothing.
I would suggest you just buck up $50 and get the VideoMic or VideoMic Pro. They have extra Db bosters (but need batteries). But this feature alone will really give you what you need for much better audio.
Lastly check out removing hiss from your audio, there are some really great tutorials out there that can make this little thing sound like the professional stuff. This is the tutorial I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opbMjW81xGk
