Australia-based RØDE Microphones have announced the RØDEGrip, a versatile mounting chassis and pistol-grip for the Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S that provides a wide range of integration options for iOS content creators.
The lightweight, compact design allows users to mount their iPhone to a camera using the integrated shoe-mount, mount to a boom stand using the incorporated 3/8” thread, operate handheld using the ergonomics of the pistol grip, or even use the RØDEGrip as a desk stand for their device.
The RØDEGrip is also an ideal companion for the RØDE iXY stereo microphone as it allows users to mount their iPhone in a fixed location while recording.
Constructed from durable ABS plastic, the RØDEGrip assembles in seconds and folds down to a compact size for transport and storage. Three mounting points are provided for the camera-shoe attachment, allowing the user to rotate and move the iPhone into a number of orientations to suit the desired application.
A deluxe version, the RØDEGrip+ adds a set of high-quality camera lenses that screw securely into place over the iPhone’s built-in camera when mounted in the cradle. The supplied macro, 180° fish-eye and 2X telephoto lenses give the user a much wider range of creativity when recording video with their iPhone.
Both the RØDEGrip and RØDEGrip+ are shipping now from www.rodemic.com
