Did you know i could play the flute me either, but today we got a cool video for you guys comica sent me out this video webcam kit for testing, slash, review and i’m. Pretty pretty excited about this. This is going to be cool, so if you guys are a youtuber that maybe focuses on recording with your mobile device, your cell phone and ipad things of that sort, this is going to help you do your job better. This has a built in microphone that goes right on top of the mount for your phone, it also comes with a tripod. It looks really cool i’m really looking forward to getting into this unboxing. We got some cool stuff to go over today, but it is really windy outside. So i thought it was going to be a good day to test this out, because we’re going to be able to see if the dead cat that they give you for this microphone. Actually works when we’re out in the wind, like i’m, looking outside right now and the wind’s blowing like crazy. So i think this is going to be a really good test. Really put this thing to the test to see if it works for outdoor environments or if this is maybe something just meant for inside so stay tuned, guys let’s get into this unboxing all right guys! Well, we are just going to open this thing up right here. It does come with this little uh, handy dandy case right here, which is pretty cool, not gon na lie to you guys.
I opened this up the other day because i really just wanted to see how it looked and what the quality of it was like, and i did notice when i opened it up that it does not come with a 3.5 millimeter, two lightning adapter. So if you are recording with a newer smartphone and all it has, is a lightning cord plug in you’re kind of out of luck. You’Re gon na have to order one and they do recommend on the amazon site for this product that you go with the original apple one. So i ordered one – and i got it in for today so it’s, like eight bucks for the adapter for 3.5 millimeter to lightning so it’s, just something to keep in mind, because this microphone kit is about 50 dollars. So you’re going to be looking at 58 plus shipping if you have to pay for shipping, so just something to keep in mind. So here is the inside of the kit. It has a nice foam cut out here to hold everything in place. It has these pouches up here, where uh you have your dead cat, which is kind of flat and compressed let’s open this thing up and see, see uh see how it looks. Uh you can definitely tell it looks a little bit cheap, but uh. You know for 50 bucks for a whole for a tripod, the map to hold your phone and a microphone that’s, not so bad, so it has a little elastic here.
You stretch this thing out and uh that’s your dead cat, so i’m. Looking forward to trying this on getting it out into the wind and seeing how it works, you have your tripod here. Pretty good quality, tripod i’ve, definitely seen a lot worse. Ones come with different webcams and stuff, so this is pretty heavy duty which is going to be good, and then you can always fold down your legs like this. For that uh, you know that selfie stick action, so here is the mount for your phone, which looks like so it screws on on this side. So what’s cool about this. Is you screw it on the bottom, but it has another quarter, twenty jack on the top. So you could attach other attachments, whatever you want to the top of this thing and then the pride and joy of the kit is this little microphone. It doesn’t uh. It just says video microphone, cvm, vm, 10, 2, so uh made by comica. It doesn’t really have any other specs on there, but this does just slide right onto the top. It is the same mount that you will have on top of your dslr camera, so that’s pretty cool just because, if you want you could use this as a shotgun mic right on your camera and plug it in with the 3.5 millimeter jack, so that’s, pretty cool It’S not just for web smartphones and stuff. You can use this on a dslr camera, which is pretty cool, so this just slides right into the top, and then you tighten down the nut that’s on top of it and then, like i said guys, you still have uh access to this quarter.
20 jack. On top of the uh mount here, so that’s pretty cool, so this guy will open up just like that and here’s your kit, and then they give you. Let me put this down here. They do give you this cord, like i said it does not come with this apple cord right here. At the end, it just comes with this guy right here, so this is what they give you you plug this in here. You plug the side with the 90 degree angle right onto the microphone, and that is it guys. You have your your whole setup here for 58. You can be out there just filming yourself having a good time making youtube videos, so this is pretty cool i’m gon na open this thing up put my phone in it and uh let’s see how this thing sounds. One other thing i did want to mention real quick: it does come with this little pop filter on here, so you can just take that one off and then you got the dead cat. I know a lot of people are just going to want to use the dead cat one because it looks kind of professional and cool looking and uh. It should really help with the wind once we get outside so that’s uh that’s. What we’re? Looking like guys we’re! Looking like we’re shooting some hollywood movies right here, this thing’s pretty cool, looking let’s uh. Let me get my phone plugged into this thing and let’s see how the audio sounds let’s.
Do it so i’m setting this thing up right now and there’s a little nut on top of this right here you just rotate this thing. Counterclockwise and the mount will open up to hold your phone. Hopefully it opens up big enough for the xs max because that’s what i am rolling with today, but you know, what’s cool about this kit is yes, it works with iphones. It works with androids. You could even use this microphone with a tablet. You know with a ipad or android tablet. Unfortunately, the tablet will not fit in this mount, but you will at least still be able to uh use the microphone. You could set up some sort of a jig to hold the microphone on top of your uh. Your ipad so that’s pretty cool, so i think we got it big enough there we do maybe a little bit too far. It does take a minute for this thing to open up enough it’s. Definitely not going to be a very quick thing to set up but that’s, not so bad, all right, so we are plugged in here. The phone is mounted. This is pretty cool, guys, i’m really excited for this. It looks like so. The the actual mount is made out of some sort of a hard plastic at first. I thought it was aluminum, it felt kind of cold, but it is plastic, but it’s it’s, pretty heavy duty. So it’s not like you have to worry about it.
Breaking and let’s plug this thing into my phone. We are plugged in and ready to go guys that is it there’s, no other setup. You just go to your phone, go to the uh little camera section start recording and you’re gon na be recording. With this thing. Let’S uh let’s plug this thing in let’s, see how this mic sounds all right. Guys, you ready three, two one: what is going on guys? We are using it. This is what the mic sounds like let’s mess around with the uh. The dead cat up here see how that audio sounds coming through. Maybe it’s going to be really intense, maybe it’s not – and this is the setup here’s my disgustingly dirty room, sorry to break the illusion, for you guys i don’t have some sick youtube studio. I am just in my room, just you guys know i did order a new desk and that is something that’s going to be coming out in a video in the next week or two i’m going to be building it this week. So that’s super exciting, definitely stay tuned. For that i keep looking at myself here, not at the camera, it’s kind of confusing uh. So this is this is what it sounds like. So you can walk around like this. You got your mountain here just to hold on to and walk around. Then you can open up. The tripod here sit down. Sorry about all my clothes here guys.
This is. This is uh that this is my room. Unfortunately it’s dirty. We got the racing wheel here. This thing does freaking look cool it uh that dead cat definitely gives you that professional feeling of feeling like you’re, holding something of high quality, and that you know just like your video production, is gon na, be a little bit higher. You can grab onto it at a moment’s notice, start going and that’s it you’re ready to go let’s. Take this thing outside and see how it sounds out in the wind all right guys. We have made it outside. Listen to those birds chirping all right, it’s, not as windy as it was a little bit earlier, but maybe you guys can still hear it uh. So this is what it sounds like outside. In the natural elements, uh let’s go for a little walk right now, let’s go freak out my neighbors! Well guys. This is what it sounds like i’m gon na, listen to it once i get inside. Hopefully it sounds pretty good, but you know guys for 50 bucks. I think that’s definitely going to be an improvement over your stock setup with just using your uh, the microphone on your camera and also this whole mount. I mean just the amount in the tripod and everything is worth 50 bucks and the fact that you can use this microphone on other uh cameras or tablets. You can literally use it on everything, it’s kind of like a one and done microphone so that’s, pretty cool.
All right guys now, what i’m going to do is i’m going to unplug this microphone and i’m going to let you guys hear how everything sounds without this microphone set up and we’re going to do that in three two one, all right guys! Well, as soon as i unplugged the microphone, the wind has really kicked up, it’s getting windy out here, uh. I. I definitely think you guys are gon na be noticing that difference with the dead cat and this microphone it’s crazy, how windy it’s getting right now uh! So this has definitely been a good test of this microphone i’m gon na get in and set all the stuff up on. My computer and we’re gon na see how it all sounds. Then i’ll give you guys my honest impressions of this thing. Once we get back inside all right guys, so i figured that we would just use this kit to record the rest of this video, because i am kind of having fun holding this thing and moving it around it’s. Definitely something i’m not used to, because i have not really done any vlogs, but i loaded up all the information onto my computer, all of the videos and it’s amazing. How good this thing sounds. You can really hear a big difference between the sound with the wind and with the dead cat on and then when i unplugged it and just used the regular microphone built into your iphone, it does its job.
I was kind of worried that maybe it wouldn’t and i was going to be disappointed, but it works, it does its job. I definitely think guys that this is worth every bit of the 50. Like i said, though, they sent me this product for review. They did not pay me for it, so this is my honest opinions i’m, not going in here and editing things trying to make it look or sound better than it is it just sounds good and i’m really happy with it. I definitely think if you guys are a youtuber or wanting to be a youtuber, a vlogger or anything, and you guys are even just you want something for day to day life, to record your kids and maybe a wedding or something. This is definitely going to do. What you want it to do, it’s only 50 and i’ve been really happy with it. Thanks for watching guys, i will leave a link in the description to pick one up from amazon. Thanks for watching don’t forget the like button, the bell, all those good things.
