PORTABILITY AND EASY TO USE
The WMM Intro Smartphone Studio Kit was created for filmmakers by filmmakers with the goal of putting the power of content creation in the hands of those who are creating the art. Creativity is often spontaneous so being able to set up easily and on the go is very important. These basic tools are great for beginner filmmakers of all ages!
Audiences are always much more forgiving of poor quality video then they are of poor quality audio so we've included a Saramonic Vmic Mini Microphone in our intro kit. The Vmic Mini is an extremely compact cardioid condenser microphone that mounts directly to your Saramonic Smartphone Clamp, DSLR/Mirrorless cameras, or any other device with a cold-shoe mount (no batteries required!) It enables you to easily capture broadcast-quality sound at the source. It can be connected to cameras and recording devices with the included TRS cable and to smartphones and tablets with the included TRRS cable right into any standard 3.5mm headphone jack. (For iOS Lightning or USB-C only phones, you will need a dongle, not included. Click here for the Apple dongle.). Vmic Mini dramatically improves the sound quality of your mobile productions whether they be video or just audio.
A stand out feature of the Vmic Mini design is the unique microphone shockmount. The wiry shockmounts on some competing microphones are flimsy and prone to bending, this can cause some unwanted audio issues and change the way the microphone picks up sound. The integrated shockmount of Vmic Mini is robust and features a sleek, sweeping and stable design.
Every aspect of the Vmic Mini’s design is top notch, and the built-in locking shoe mount features a metal 1/4 20 tripod thread at the base that gives you near limitless mounting options.
The included Saramonic SR-BSP1C is a smartphone clamp designed for tripods, monopods, stands and stabilizing handgrips that enables you to shoot more stabilized photos and video, and it also lets you attach essential accessories to your phone — like lights, microphones, wireless systems and more. The clamp can be confidently adjusted to fit smartphones up to 3.6” (9.1 cm) wide with a case, and it can be mounted to shoot cinematic horizontal landscape video, or vertical video for Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram and more.
The Smartphone Clamp provides 3 metal 1/4" 20 thread mounts for tripod and additional accessory mounting and cold shoe mount on top for holding mics, lights, etc.
You can quickly attach your Smartphone Clamp to the top of your Benro PP1 PocketPod tabletop tripod! The PocketPod can be used as a tabletop tripod as well as a handgrip for smartphones, GoPro or DSLR cameras. Small enough to fit in your pocket, the PocketPod is made of high quality plastic with non-slip rubber feet and an all metal ball. The integrated ball head allows camera positions from horizontal to vertical and can be securely locked in any position with a quick twist of the locking ring. Each leg has two grooves for a more comfortable and secure grip when using as a handgrip. The PocketPod supports up to 3.3 pounds, has a max height of 5.3 inches while weighing only 5.6 ounces (.35 lb). Its built-in ball head has a 1/4"-20 camera screw and a unique design that allows adjustments and locking with a single twist of the locking ring.
