    Default Using iphone for video and sound possible? Mike too far away?

    I was considering getting a Zoom iQ6 mike to plug into my iphone - which is on a tripod 2m away videoing me against a green screen.

    Occurred to me that the mike would be too far away (because you always see singers virtually inhaling the mike).

    However I didnt really want the mike in shot, so how far away could a mike be in a studio and still give good quality?

    Depends on your purpose of course but ive recorded most of my videos lately with the Zoom Q8 sitting several feet away. I usually post-process the sound for EQ and level purposes but it's still very useable for ukes and flutes. I don't see why it couldn't work for voice. But again, it depends on your needs, what you mean by "good quality", and if you're willing to do anything else to it afterward

    They also sell extension lightning cables. That’s how I have been using my Shure MV88 that won’t plug into my devices with their cases on.

    I use the IQ6 and it seems to work just fine. It has the dile for sensitivity. When I record a couple feet away I have it set to 5 out of 10 and it’s still super sensitive. It has the 90 and 120 deg settings as well. It’s a great mic for the money.

    Ah. Allowed back in! Thanks for the feedback. Normally use the Blue mike with pop shield on the imac and the iphone to video, but trying to be minimal and also hide the mike. Hoping to have the new mike/iphone two metres away (not feet) and wondered if that would just be a wste of money.
    Like to use the green screen hence all this! Suppose I could lip sync...
