Sony Lav Mic with iPhone (ECM-CS10)


The Sony ECM-CS10 Lavalier Microphone is connected to a Tascam iXJ2, then connected to a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, and then to an iPhone 5s.

The Tascam iXJ2 provides plug-in power and a mono-sum feature to the Sony ECM-CS10 stereo lavalier microphone. Some digital audio recorders (like the Zoom H5) don't have a mono-mix feature for the 3.5mm input. You can easily mono-sum or mono-mix a stereo track in an open source software, like Audacity.

I used a small windscreen for the Sony lavalier microphone as well. The camera was a Canon PowerShot S110 and my camera operator was my gf. :) The iOS app I used was the Tascam PCM recorder app, to record in CD quality wav files. I did edit the audio files in Audacity; mostly to remove the noise (hiss).

The reason for the clap was due to creating a mark on the audio wave form to manually sync the audio and video in post (iMovie). I believe it's a great mic for around $30.

For an affordable shotgun microphone, I think the Rode NTG-2 is a great shotgun mic, if you can find it second-hand. I payed around $150 on eBay. However, I had to wait quite a few months, until I found one selling at that price. The software Audacity, can easlity remove noise (hiss). Some people prefer the Audio-Technica AT897.

ACTON R RocketSkates

The Action R RocketSkates sport motorized skates that strap to your shoes; providing your daily walking shoes a rest, while toting them for a joyful ride.

I can imagine traversing an entire theme park without breaking a sweat. Also, being able to transition from a walking path to an indoor establishment, like a restaurant, to get a bite to eat or relax. Not having to remove your futuristic skates is a total plus!

Remote controls you may have asked? You don't need remote controls where you're headed to! Your feet control the skates!

Find the Kickstarter project here.

Iain Sinclair Knife: Cardsharp 2 Review



A brief video about the Iain Sinclair Cardsharp 2.

This knife is immensely sharp with it's surgical steel; however, when I showcased the knife, the blade seemed a slightly dull from all the use and abuse I put it through. I have sharpened it and it's back to its normal keen precision.

Let me know what you guys think of this product or if you already own one, in the comments below.

Thanks for watching, have a great day, and take care!
