This is larry welcome. Back to today, i feel like today, we’re going to take a look at the usq vision, smartphone vlog kit. This is the smartphone microphone light. Video kit for vlog that’s, a name right there for you, but this is the k2 version. We’Re gon na unbox, it put it all together and then go test it out. So here we go all right. Let’S go ahead and start off by taking a quick look around the box. Here we can see here, it’s going to say usq vision, and this is going to be a smartphone microphone light video kit for vlog. This is going to show us what the uh the whole kit is going to look like put together. We’Re gon na get the microphone the light. The phone clip and the uh, the mini tripod you’re gon na have to provide your own phone, though um we’re, also probably gon na, have to provide this uh. This uh 3.5 millimeter to lightning adapter, because most of these kits do not provide them and uh yeah let’s see a little branding on that side, little branding on that side, branding and then on the back here it says vlog, k2 and vlog k3. It looks like we have the vlog k2, so that’s the one we’re going to review, and then there is some company information. All right let’s go ahead and get this out of the package here and take a look at it and we’ll throw that off to the side and yeah nice.
We have a case for it. This is really nice that they provide a case i’m, not real sure about all this big branding on the front, but they did give us a nice case here. So let’s go ahead and get this uh get this undone here and see what we get with it. And it looks like right away we’re going to get everything right there laid out nicely, so we can see here we’re going to get a service card here so with some qr codes to contact them. If you need service we’re also going to get a start, a quick start guide there. So if you need a quick start guide, it’s going to come in multiple languages, we’re going to get the phone clip here and yeah, it looks like it has a little release. Button that’s kind of cool and i think it’s the first time, i’ve seen that so you can uh push it and then find whatever points you need and then let it go and it will lock it in place and when you push the button it releases so That you can get your phone out of there simply so yeah that’s nice. I think i might use this often this might might be my go to. It also has a uh. It also has a cold shoe mount on there and it has a uh a quarter. Twenty thread on the bottom and on the back, so we have the microphone and this has a little weight to it.
So i believe this is metal, and but it has a little bit of weight to it, which is really nice, so we’re gon na try this out. We also have the the uh the ball head here, that we’re gon na be able to use with the uh. The mini tripod so that it’s easy to get the right angle on your phone that you’re looking for whether you’re holding it or setting it down. So all right, there’s that let’s see what else we have here. It looks like we’re going to get a few things and let’s see let’s. This looks like it’s going to be the light, so this is kind of cool and uh yeah. So this is going to be the usq vision. It says model w49s and we see that there is going to be the usbc port that you can use to plug in right there, and this is the power switch or dial that you can turn on and uh just like that, that’s how it’s going to turn On and you can increase the intensity or decrease the intensity by just uh rolling the dial right there now we’re also going to have uh three different cold shoe mounts on here, so you can mount the microphone or whatever else you want. I guess on there and on the bottom, we’re gon na have a cold shoe mount and a quarter twenty thread on there, so that you can mount this.
However, you like so all right, set that right there. It looks like we’re going to get a a furry dead cat and a foam windscreen and yeah, and oh right there we go looks like that. It looks like the or feels like that. The foam windscreen act or the furry dead kit actually has foam on the inside, so you don’t need to use both of these. At the same time, you can just use the uh the furry dead cat and actually let’s see how that fits in there let’s see if we can get this on there, oh yeah. I can already tell just by trying to put it on it’s, going to be tight, so yeah that’s going to work. Okay, very good, now, um now it looks like we’re also going to get uh these. These must be the cables here then, and we already see a shock mount so yeah all right, we’re going to get a shock mount here and on the shock, mount looks like we’re, going to have a quarter 20 thread on the bottom and a cold shoe. So we can mount this onto our camera directly or, if you want to use this on, like a tripod or a boom pole or something you have the quarter twenty thread so um yeah. So we have both the cold shoe and the quarter twenty thread. We also are going to get uh cables here, so it looks like we’re going to get a cable with a two pronged or two prong.
This is going to be for the camera and there is a little tag on there that says for cameras. So this one here is going to be for the phone and there is a little uh, a little tag that says for phones and this one is going to be the two lines: the two prong to three prong there. So the one with the three prongs is always for the phone that’s, the trs it’s a trrs, whereas this one is the trs cable. So and then we also have a usbc cable for the light here, so we can charge the light up. So all right, we have everything here, let’s go ahead and set it all up, get it the way it’s supposed to be and then go test it out all right. So here we have it. We have the whole vlog kit all set up. We have the microphone. We have the light, we have the phone and the phone holder. We have. The ball head attached to the mini tripod, which well mini tripod, is sitting on the table here so yeah. We have the whole thing all set up and ready to go so now. First, let’s go ahead and test this out since we’re indoors, we’ll test it out indoors and i’ll just try it without the microphone and then i’ll, try it with the microphone and then i’ll go outside and it’s really starting to get dark quickly here. So i need to hurry up, but it’ll give us a good chance to try the light out as well and we’ll go outside and try it with the light without the light and we’ll try it with the microphone without the microphone.
So yeah let’s go out so well, let’s. Do it here first and then we’ll head outside okay, so i am recording now using the phone and the microphone that is included with the us key vision, uh kit, and so this is what you’re hearing right now is the microphone that comes with the vlog kit. So yeah i’m going to go ahead and actually unplug it so that we can take a listen and see what it sounds like if i’m, using just the iphone’s mics alone. So you can get an idea of what one sounds like versus the other all right. So now i am recording just using the built in microphones of the iphone, so you can hear what the difference is, or maybe you can’t i don’t know, but this is what you can expect. I have the microphone right here and so i’m, just filming with just the iphone 11 pro uh, the iphone 11 pro max just using the built in microphone. So all right let’s go ahead and uh and turn off the and try this with the light and just see if it makes any difference with the light. I already have my studio lights on here, so it’s not going to make a big difference so let’s skip that inside because well you don’t really need it inside. If you have, if you have studio lights but let’s head outside and try the microphone indoors and outdoor with the microphone outdoors and with the light outdoors and we’ll see what kind of difference it makes using the light without the light and with the microphone without the Microphone all right – everyone so i’m outside here, and it got real dark real, quick here, as we can see it’s pretty dark so um.
I have the light off and i’m recording with the uh the microphone. So this is what we can uh hear. What we can expect from the microphone it’s pretty windy outside, but i do have the dead cat on it, so um that is probably helping quite a bit right now. Now there is one thing i want to say about this microphone: it’s, not really the microphone per se it’s the shock mount. I absolutely hate the shock mount on this microphone kit because well it just doesn’t stay on the phone clip very well. It just does not stay mounted very well at all. It just keeps on slipping off and that just is a real problem for me, because the last thing you want to do is have your camera out. Have everything set up, you’re filming and then your microphone just falls off. That is not a good thing at all, so anyways let’s go ahead and turn this light on and see what this is going to look like. So let me go ahead and uh and turn this on here and yeah boom. There we go. We can see that this is going to help really light you up. This is really going to make a big difference if you are outside and it’s dark or in a room where there’s not a lot of light. This is really really going to help. So, while i’m, not a big fan of the shock mount, i am, on the other hand, a big fan of this light all right.
I went ahead and unplugged the microphone here, because i want you to hear what this sounds like with the iphone alone, with the built in microphones of the iphone alone, and this is what you’re hearing. So this is uh the microphone for the iphone uh, the built in microphones of the iphone 11 pro max. So now i will say if you heard a little bit of crackling earlier, a little sort of weirdness with the microphone that’s, because the wind kicked up. It’S really it’s pretty windy out here right now and uh this uh this microphone, you can hear what a big gust of wind kicked up. That was how it was handling it. I guess it just sort of uh the wind became too much and it sort of just freaked the microphone out for a second, so yeah anyways uh. The wind is going a little bit, so you might be hearing that right now on this as well. But these are the built in microphones of the iphone 11 pro max all right, everyone. So there we have it. That is a look at the usq vision, vlog k2 smartphone vlog kit and i have to say, i’m. Okay with it um. I absolutely hate the shock. Mount on this thing i mean hate, it hate it would not use it like. If i had this kit, i would get a different shock mount to use with it because it’s very frustrating it just does not stay mounted.
I mean i can literally just take this and push it and it just falls off. And even when i get this thing on there and twist it and have it locked down where i think it should be locked down again it just sort of jiggles loose and then it just pops right off it just does not stay on there. No matter what you do, it’s just yeah this, this shock mount is complete and utter garbage. Now everything else i’m. Okay, with i mean the uh, the mini tripod and the uh in the mini ball head. They work fine together, they lock into place really nicely. I, like the light i like the light that it’s it’s very, very lightweight it’s bright enough to use you’re not going to use it as like a big studio light. But if you’re vlogging you’re going to be relatively close to you so that works really nicely. It uses usbc, so it charges up uh with a very universal charging, cable and charges relatively quickly um. You know i really like this phone clip. I think i’m, probably gon na grab this phone clip and use it for uh. You know for my normal phone clip, whereas i was already using something else, but i think i might go ahead and choose this. Instead, um yeah, i just don’t like the uh. I just don’t, like the the the shock mount that kind of kills it for me. So but anyways there, you have it i’m gon na leave a link to this product down below in the video description, so that you can check it out.
I’M. Also gon na leave a link to my amazon page and my social media contacts so that you can reach out to me elsewhere, and i hope you enjoyed seeing this video.
