This is also a great option for cell phone shooters. It has a TRRS (4-pole) 1/8" male plug, the camera/phone toggle switches it between TRS for camera mic inputs & TRRS for phone mic inputs, very cool. The main problem on phones if you're hand holding the phone is the length of cord. You'll need a female-to-male TRRS extension. With all the new gimbals for phones, I could see attaching the Smartrig+ to the handle of a gimbal. or a camera 'frame' for phones or GoPro's.

There's separate gain control knobs for L & R channels, so you can mix and match mic and sources. Very cool. It does what the H4n does (minus recording capability). If you don't want to mess with and external recorder (which has it's own merits), and you need two mics, this a great option.
I takes on 9v battery for phantom power. I used a lithium rechargeable.
I like the 1/4" female mounting adapter, you can attach a 1/4" hot shoe adapter. You can also use the include velcro strip and hang it off a tripod. In my frankenstein setup (see attached photo), I have a tri-mount with 4 accessories on top a GH4. A VideoMic Pro on the left, a wireless receiver on the right, an LED panel on top, and the Smartrig velcro'd to the articulating arm. All self contained on a tri-pod, no external wires, recorders.

Warning to GH4 owners, the audio setting for external mics has to be in stereo! I had mine wrong and I thought I had a defective unit. Luckily I have two GH4s and it worked on the 2nd one, allowing me to troubleshoot & discover the "Special Mic" setting has to be set to STEREO mode (it's grayed out until you plug a mic or in this case the Smartrig+ cable). I had this setting in Manual causing all kind of weird things to happen.... when I connected an XLR condenser mic using phantom power from the unit. I also tried that in combination with Rode VideoMic Pro. Neither mic worked when outputting in 'Camera Mode'. 1st thing I did was plug in my headphones, I could hear both mics and adjust gain, but no output to my Camera (GH4). When I switched from Camera mode to Phone mode, the camera then got signal, but the headphones went dead. In addition, the whole Mono/Stereo set up wasn't right. I could raise or lower the gain to each mic, but I could not separate the channels. Once I reset "Special Mic" to Stereo Mode, all this went away and it worked per the manual.
What this does for me is help kill audio noise by taking over as the camera's pre-amp. For me, I have a Canon HFG-20 and I turn down the microphone level to "40". Then I adjust the level with the on my Saramonic wireless lapel microphone and lastly, the level on the SmartRig+. This is a killer combo.
For the XLR, I turn the microphone level up to around "65". I use the NADY SGM-12 (I think that's the right number :) and then turn the SmartRig+ up.
I like that it takes over the not so good pre-amp in my Canon HFG-20.
By by passing the onboard pre-amp you can get your room noise and kill that in post while not sacrificing your audio tone!
This is a no brainer, do it!
I love that I can input 4 mics to this, 2 XLR and 2 3.5mm. In this situation, one XLR and one 3.5mm go to one volume control---and there are two volume controls that then cover the 4 inputs. This solves the problem of how to effectively mix pro balanced microphone connectors (XLR) with 3.5mm unbalanced microphone connectors on cameras that only have the 3.5mm input. LOVE that!! Device gets five stars on that alone! And those analog volume controls are so handy (so much better than menus)!
And it has phantom power for the XLR mics that need it! Phantom does apply to BOTH XLRs simultaneously (no need to worry about the 3.5mm since phantom power cannot travel on the unbalanced lines as I understand it) but you do want to make sure that, if you are using 2 XLR mics, that they both can accept phantom power. Some mics can be damaged if phantom power is applied and they are not made for it.
It also works with your phone---you have to flip a switch to tell it to input to a phone instead of a camera. The only bug I found is that the headphone jack does not seem to work when I have the switch set to the "phone" mode. Therefore, when I plug this device into the phone to record my guitar (yes you can plug in your guitar!), I cannot monitor the recording, though it does record. I didn't try plugging in a microphone instead of the guitar and see if I could monitor that when plugging into my phone, so maybe that would be different? I also was just recording into the apple "voice memo" app on the phone so maybe a proper recording app might let the headphone monitoring work?
Regardless, I bought this for my camera, not for my phone so I don't really care if I can monitor using the headphones on the phone! And, I prefer to monitor the signal from the camera anyway, because that's where the audio needs to be! So it's nice that it has the headphone monitoring but it seems like it would be most useful for the phone (where it doesn't seem to work), but I don't really need it for the camera.
Anyway, this thing is great! I look forward to using it on all my shoots with DSLRs and my G30 that only have the 3.5mm mic inputs!
I'm going to run a few more tests and use it in the field more, but until it proves to me otherwise this device has so far been considered overrated and is just an expensive mixer to allow me to use 4 devices.
