This is a video making kit that’s designed specifically for a smartphone. It comes in this very nice nylon case has really nice zippers on it. It has some decent stitching on it. I doubt if that’s ever going to come apart inside the lid, you have your instructions, and here is the cable that goes from the microphone to your phone. You have the microphone itself and it has a foam windscreen on it. You have a tripod here which also doubles as a handheld device. You have the phone holder and a little swivel mount in case. You want to get creative and record at different angles or in the in the vertical position, and you have your windy condition. Windscreen the cardioid condenser shotgun microphone is machined from aluminum and has a very nice finish on there. It has a shock absorbing mount in case there’s, any kind of situations to where there’s vibrations from loud noises or whatnot it’s not going to affect the microphone. This does come out and you can mount this into a different kind of stand. If you wish it has your mount here for the shoe very nicely made shotgun microphone and in my opinion it sounds great. The cell phone mount is made out of plastic and it is adjustable to fit most cell phones uh. This opens white enough to fit my phone, which is a samsung s9 plus, but it also would be big enough to fit a samsung note.
There’S plenty of adjustment in here and you can see it kind of – has wide jaws which would accommodate a thicker phone case, or you could actually angle your phone. Should you need to the tripod? Slash handheld device is constructed of plastic. You have anodized aluminum here, it’s rubberized, on top, when you open it up, the bottom of the feet are rubberized, so it’s not going to slip. It’S very well made it’s a nice white platform to give your your recording equipment. A nice stabilization here’s that little ball adapter that i had mentioned earlier. It does swivel it rotates in case you wanted to do some kind of uh recording at an angle or vertical recording, and for the moment i just have my case installed in the phone holder because of the reflection, my phone picks up the lighting that’s above me. So to eliminate that i just put the case in here, but it does swivel all the way around the for those of you that want to shoot some creative video. I suppose now the shoe on the phone mount allows you to install the microphone in four different positions here. Should you need to pick up sound from different angles? Everything that comes in this kit is ready to go for the android phone. Now it will work with an iphone 7 or newer, but you would need a lightning audio adapter, which is sold separately. Let’S, go test this microphone and see how well it works.
Okay, so i’m, just out in my backyard right now and i’m using the microphone. That is on my telephone and you probably hear some traffic noise, okay, now i’m gon na plug in the comica shotgun microphone and see how much better it does all right. Now, the comico microphone’s plugged. In now the sound of the traffic. Often the distance should come in a lot better, all right, so the area i live in it really isn’t very windy. We don’t get much wind here so uh. I want to test out that fuzzy windscreen, so let’s go create some wind all right. So what i’m gon na do is create some wind using a box fan right at the moment i’m, just using the built in microphone that comes on my telephone i’m gon na turn the fan on low, and it should pick up a little bit of wind distortion. Okay, now i’m gon na plug in the comica shotgun microphone, and this is without any windscreen at all it’s. Just the bare microphone Music and that kind of makes the sound just cut out so now, i’m going to install the foam Music windscreen. Okay, now i’m going to take the foam one off and install the fuzzy. Now i’ll turn the fan on medium and now high and, as you can see, the fuzzy winds wind screen cuts out any wind distortion. I think it works really well now there are two things about this kit that i think may be a flaw for a lack of a better term, the tripod handheld device.
Here it is rather thick i mean i can hold on to it. Just fine, but a smaller statue person that may not have bigger hands may have an issue holding on to that. The second thing is the cable that goes from your cell phone to the microphone. Now you can see here it does have a slight taper right in there or a step down now. I think that step down needs to be extended back, maybe an eighth of an inch, because the opening, in my case doesn’t, allow me to use this. While my phone is inside the case now, i have five different cases for my phone and they and the uh hole there are all the same size in every single one of them. So i prefer to use this setup with my phone in the case so i’m going to have to enlarge that hole which isn’t going to be hard. It is just a hard rubber. I can make it larger with like a dremel tool or something, but i think uh comica, if you’re watching you need to address that issue. So people can use this kit with their case on the phone all right. So there it is the comica model cvm vm. 10. K2 pro, if you guys are interested in this product, i’ll put the link to where you can find it down below.
