I am looking for an inexpensive solution for youtube commentary videos. I came down to the RODE Lavalier, and the RODE SmartLAV+.
I don't have an iPhone, so I discovered that you can use any smartphone app to record the SmartLAV+ audio.
The question I have is: Can the regular RODE Lavalier mic also record directly into a smartphone or laptop, or is that some special feature of the SmartLAV+?
The RODE lavalier appears to have a slightly larger range than the SmartLAV+, and I like the idea of being able to change the connector as I get a bit better at sound and grow.
