ciao Dick. i tried using the ipod with the belkin mic on it but the quality was really bad. audio recording while taking stills is really hard and demanding. im using ann M AUDIO device, that uses CF cards but its still not good enough for demanding clients. i heard of dudes mounting shot guns mics on their hot shoe of their cameras. it might be a good idea. i dont really see any other way of not getting distracted from our only job.

I’m thinking of mounting my shot gun mic on my DSLR. Azden (www.azden.com but I forget the model number) makes a seet mic with a small cone of sound, something like 45 degrees all around and its mono so it won’t pick up too much camera sound.

Hi Guy, did you use the(latest) iPod 5G in combination with the new ‘dual mic’ Belkin (or the older type Belkin mic)?

Hi, what about the iRiver? Cause I’m considering the H10 with a SONY ECM-719 for ambience and a shotgun mic for interviews.

Hi all, I found a review of the Belkin Tune Talk Stereo here: http://www.insidehomerecording.com/?p=161

I’m gonna pick up an Edirol R-09 for ambient sound recording..

I have the i-river. the quliaty is heads and shoulders above the i-pod setup, expecially if you record on the (3-D) setting. This item is especially good for interview/ audio (up to about 4-5 feet). For ambient you may have to go with some thing else or another kind of mic.

If you have a 3G or 4G iPod you should check out the iPod Linux patch – you can use your ipod to record up to 96Khz audio from a mic – DVD/Studio quality. The Belkin plug-in mic’s only record at 8Khz, lower quality than AM Radio.

The Hot-shoe idea is fantastic – I’m assuming you’re using a long lead to the recorder in your pocket? Or has someone worked out a way to attach an iPod/recorder to their camera that’s more reliable than gaffer tape? Although, if you took off the battery grip, gaffer’d the recorder to the base of the grip, then re-attached the grip it would be on there pretty solid, right? Hang on – of course, this way, holding your camera in vertical would be a pain in the ass…
