    I got myself a Joby Grip tight. It is a handy little bit of kit.

    Shure MV5 USB microphone
    Not the highest rated USB mic, but not the worst either. I am content. It comes with USB and lightening cable for connecting.

    Used to be connected to my PC, recording with Audacity.
    Now I usually record on an 8" Lenovo android tablet, connected through an "on the go" adapter.
    On android I use the Audio Evolution app.

    Video I record on my Olympus Pen Mini digital camera, placed on a stand. Then I synchronize audio and video in Windows movie maker.

    Makeshift last minute recordings:
    Sometimes I just plug the Shure MV5 into my tablet, place it on a table, resting against something and record video with the selfie cam. I believe this gets the audio from the microphone. The video is horrible though.

    Shure MV88 plugged to my iPhone 7 Plus then airdrop to my iMac to adjust volume lighting if needed and add title using iMovie
    I wish I know how to edit then I don't need to record so many times
    For audio I use Shure app either plugged to iPad or iPhone then use auditciy to trim unwanted beginning of the recording and reduce unwanted noise.

    Have you upgraded your gear?

    I use either my Canon HFG10 video camera or my GoPro. The microphones on the former are quite good, but living on a busy street, there's so much background noise, for the audio I use a Yeti "Blue" USB microphone plugged into the laptop running Fruit Loops Studio 12.

    Not yet - but I did buy in a couple of cheap mics to try out - one of which was a 'lapel' type, the other was a 'standard' USB type.
    (Neither was particularly good, so you get what you pay for.)

    However, I did discover that my O/S sound system software, which had been upgraded, has now got a USB mixer, under sound cards.

    Experimenting with that gave me better sound - but then I forgot about it when I recorded my last video.

    I use a Studio Projects condenser mic for most stuff, a Macbook and Logic/iMovie. Generally I record the audio in Logic with my webcam capturing the video, I label the video files "Uke take 1" or whatever so I can sync them up with the audio take I end up using.

    I use an MXL 910 condenser mic into a Scarlett 2i2 interface connected to my iPad mini via powered usb hub and camera connection kit. I record into GarageBand. For my lyrics videos I have been creating slides in keynote , taking screenshots of them, then importing them into iMovie. I import the music mix from GarageBand and sync the slides .

    I've just made a little comparison test between two different dynamic mics:
