The Zoom iQ5 is a high-quality mid-side stereo condenser mic, perfect for recording music and compact enough to be slipped into your pocket. Simply connect it to the Lightning connector of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and get ready to do some serious stereo recording any time, any place.
The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard “audio” position or simply rotate it to the “video” position in order to record video with the attached iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch held horizontally.
Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible) stereo. The iQ5 contains two microphone elements: a directional “mid” mic that captures audio coming from in front, and a bidirectional “side” mic that covers ambient signal.
Stereo width can be customized to the precise recording situation: Set it to 90° to hone in on an individual sound, or 120° for a wider image that includes the surrounding ambience and reverberation. For even more control, record the mid and side mic signals as raw MS data so that you can later adjust the stereo width from 30° to 150° with Zoom's free Handy Recorder iOS app
