Default Use the iPhone as an Audio Recorder for Your Video DSLR

"If you’ve shot any video on a DSLR you already know it’s not ideal. The form factor of the camera isn’t made for video and the need to manually focus on a moving subject can be tricky. One of the weakest parts is the camera is its microphone."

Audio is an important part of videos and movies, but the recent video DSLRs only treat audio like an afterthought. My own GH1 as auto-gain which cannot be turned off, and you can imagine how annoying it can be. So is using the iPhone a case of replacing a mediocre solution with another? Surprisingly, despite the poor quality of the iPhone's microphone (the author admits as much) the ability to move it off-camera does bring quite a few benefits, namely, no camera operation noise. There are also a couple of good recommendations in the article for those looking at better quality solutions without breaking the bank, so go check out the article!
