How To Record Audio (to use in video) With Your iPhone and the Rode SmartLav

Learn How To Make Videos That Make Money


A few weeks ago I reviewed a video camera (the outstanding Sony RX100)  that did not have an external microphone jack. I said it was no big deal, you can just use your iPhone to record the audio. And many people wanted to know how that was possible.

Actually there are multiple ways to do this, all with varying degrees of difficultly and expense.

But for this video I decided to skip all of that stuff and just show you the fastest, simplest and most goof-proof way (which happens to be the exact method I use too).

No hoops to jump through, no confusing techno-stuff.  Here’s how in just seconds you can record pro-quality audio on your iPhone…audio that you can instantly use for your videos.


Rode SmartLav (it works on iPhone’s and most Android phones).  It’s usually out of stock everywhere but THIS PLACE HAS IT IN STOCK
