With the advent of action cams, like GoPro’s Hero 4+, sports videographers these days can produce incredible point-of-view films, that show off their feats of strength, endurance and at times, stupidity.
However, whilst the visual element is breathtaking in many of these vids, what they lack is good sound.
Being able to record the audio adrenaline as it’s happening, or even an excited commentary, shouldn’t need to cost a fortune or involve an excess of cables added to your setup. This is where the SportsMyk, by MyMyk comes in. Its low-price point and lack of wiring make it a definite contender for every sports videographer’s gear bag.
The SportsMyk is a fully adjustable, mini-boom microphone that can be securely attached to sports caps, safety helmet straps, goggle straps, clothing and sun glasses. It is fitted with a gold 3.5mm (1/8″) TRS microphone plug compatible with most DSLR, Action and Video Cameras and includes a GoPro Compatible USB to 3.5mm TRS mic adaptor cable.
Check out the SportsMyk in action on the Australian Alps.
