The PHOTOPRO X KIT FROM OPTRIX will give
your iPhone a new lease of life underwater, in the
snow and in other phone unfriendly places. We
bought the bike handlebar mount, the vehicle
(or other smooth surface) suction mount,
tripod adapter and the wrist fl oat. Lenses are
simple to screw on and give great results with a
membrane screen for full phone control. The rear
clip attachment hasn’t let us down but would like
to see a double action opener for even more peace of
mind, I don’t want it to open 3 metres underwater.
IK MULTIMEDIA, IRIG PRE can be used with iOS
and Android smartphones. The iRig Pre will allow use of
any professional microphone: use any
Dynamic microphone with the pre amp
switched on or simply, switch to +48v to
add phantom power and use a shotgun
IK Multimedia have also created an
iRig Recorder app for iOS and Android.
The iRig Recorder app has eight editing
processes which give a great opportunity
to edit and trim the fi le before exporting.
Export the fi nished audio fi le to Dropbox
or simply send to SoundCloud.
What’s your most desirable piece
of kit, or indeed the item you just
wouldn’t be without? Let us know
and, if printed, we’ll send you an
original JOBY Gorilla Pod (camera
GALILEO is an app-controlled
robotic dock for iPhone (and
other devices) bringing a new
dimension of motion control
to your iPhone. You control
the orientation of your iPhone
remotely or let galileo rotate
your iPhone automatically with
new apps constantly being
developed (see RecoLive, right),
the possibilities are endless.
Having used the iPRO LENS
SYSTEM for about a year
now with an iPhone 5s it is
a great solution with the lens
stored inside the grip handle.
When not in use the case is
protective and non-obtrusive
and has tripod mounts on
both sides so isn’t one of
those cases that you have
to remember to put on when
you want to use the lens
– just leave it on.
Perfect for the Galileo is the MULTI-
CAMERA SHOOTING APP FROM
RECOLIVE. The tutorial on YouTube
(click the QR code to view) says it all but
essentially a multicamera studio controlled
using a tablet or even iPhone
as the production switcher.
Add multiple camera from
iPhones and even use your
laptop as another source to
cut in slides.
As users of the
prompters we use the
APP on an iPad for the
studio. At only £14.00
for the studio version you
get full control (wired or
wireless), multiple script
loading methods, mirroring
and a scroll slider for
responsive speed up, slow
down and reverse scroll.
