The WMM Smartphone Studio Standard Kit allows the DIY filmmaker or content creator to start telling their stories by creating high quality video using their smartphone. Portable, easy to set up, and very compact, allowing you to capture everything from spontaneous video shoots, documentary style interviews and b-roll (with very flattering light from the LumiPad 25!), and any sized budget narrative project! The kit includes:
- Slim Travel Tripod
- Saramonic SR-BSP1C Smartphone Clamp
Nanlite LumiPad 25
- Phottix P220 Light Stand
- Vmic Mini Directional Condenser Microphone
- TRS/TRS TRS/TRRS Cables Included
This kit delivers an 'all in one' solution for the DIY filmmaker or multi-hyphenate without breaking the bank. You don't need to invest thousands on a high end camera in order to capture professional video -- with this kit you'll have everything you need to capture professional audio and video using only your Smartphone camera. The main advantage over the intro kit is the inclusion of a super powerful and very flattering light as well: the NanLite LumiPad 25 High Output Soft Light LED Panel. An impressively compact and bright light - the NanLite LumiPad25 LED panels combine compact design and impressive brightness making them an ideal option for live streaming, vlogging, photography lighting, video lighting, photo booths and more.
With LumiPad series LEDs you can quickly achieve beautiful, studio-quality results without adding plastic filters or cloth diffusion. Rear control knobs enable you to dial in brightness from 0-100% and temperature from warm to cold (3200K-5600K).
We include the Saramonic Vmic Mini Shotgun Microphone in all our kits to ensure you're capturing broadcast quality audio along with HD video. Its ultra-compact size allows the mic to be placed in areas that larger shogun/pencil condenser mics just won't fit. If you're shooting outside, remember to place the included double thick foam windscreen over the mic before shooting. This will protect your mic from wind and weather.
The Vmic Mini mounts directly on your included Smartphone Clamp! 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.
The Standard's kit's other advantage over the intro Smartphone Studio Kit is the Benro Slim Travel Tripod. The Benro Slim is a lightweight Aluminum tripod that features a slim profile shoulder allowing for the tripod legs to be more compact when folded.
With a maximum weight capacity of 8.8 lbs. this tripod is ideal for Smartphone rigs.
The Slim tripod legs feature anodized aluminum twist locks in 3 positions that only require a quick half turn to lock and unlock. The center column can be reversed for low to the ground shots or separated from the legs to be used as a selfie stick or monopod! A weight hook is located underneath the center column for windy conditions.
Staying level is made easy with included bubble levels on the tripod shoulder and on the quick release clamp. The removable single action ball head has an oversized ratchet style lock knob for easy operation and a panoramic scale. The ball head includes a blue anodized aluminum Arca-Swiss style quick release plate with a D-ring 1/4"-20 camera screw. As an added bonus, it also converts to a monopod for those times when room (or setup time!) is at a minimum.
The 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.
