Posted on Oct 24 2012 - 2:29pm by Ben Oaks

Since the introduction of the iPhone people have been using it to take video’s. Local favorites such as Pittsburgh Dad started with just a iPhone and some editing software. Apogee had now released a new mount that gives you a stable platform for not only your iPhone,  but also a high quality mic. The MiC/Zacuto Zgrip Jr. combines a super sturdy mounting platform with Apogee Mic for near professional quality time after time.


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.

  • 1m cable for connection to Mac
  • Quick start guide
  • Desktop tripod
