Apogee teams up with Zacuto to deliver amazing sound quality and stable HD video to the iPhone
SANTA MONICA- October 23, 2012-Apogee Electronics, an industry leader in digital audio recording for more than 25 years, releases the MiC/Zacuto Zgrip Jr. kit to deliver professional sound to HD video recording on the iPhone. The kit is a seamless fusion of the Apogee MiC, a studio-quality condenser microphone, and the Zgrip Jr., a solid handgrip for shooting video on the iPhone 4 or 4S. Consumers are able to mount the MiC directly on the Zgrip and turn their iPhone into a professional handheld rig, capable of capturing life’s greatest moments with stunning sound and HD video.
The Apogee MiC is the first studio-quality microphone to make a direct digital connection to GarageBand on the iPhone, iPad and Mac. The MiC’s pristine sound is a result of PureDIGITAL technology, delivering the natural tone of one’s voice or instrument right to the iPad, iPhone or Mac without compromise.
iPhone video recordings can often look shaky and amateurish. The Zacuto Zgrip iPhone Jr. is the perfect device for attaining professional and stable mobile recordings on iPhone 4 or 4S. The phone (which is not included in the kit) simply snaps into the cradle attached to the handgrip. The handgrip has a ¼ 20” thread on the bottom for mounting to a tripod. It also has a ¼ 20” thread on top for mounting the Apogee MiC.
The kit includes:
Zacuto Zgrip Jr.
0.5m cable for connection to iPad and iPhone
1m cable for connection to Mac
Quick start guide
MiC stand adaptor
Setup is simple and easy: Attach the iPhone to the Zgrip Jr., mount the MiC on the Zgrip, connect the MiC to iPhone, and begin shooting.
