Since the very first time I used the SmartLav from Rode Mic, I haven’t stopped. Well for two main reasons

  1. It’s Cheap
  2. It’s handy

And if I am to add more, It’s got really a nice Quality sound output and with the birth of InvisiLav, It’s even more glorious.

The whole system just required your iPhone, a Rode rec app and the Smart Lav and you will have a quality sound for your fiilm. You can see the review from film riot here.

Asides recording in Mono which can be fixed with Adobe Audition, There’s really no other downside I find with this Mic. So next time you want to get a great sound, Hook your self up a smart lav and thank me later
