Resident Audio RARCS2 overview

  • 1Description

The RCS-2 Microphone Stick from Resident Audio is a selfie stick that allows you to capture audio and video simultaneously from hard-to-reach angles. A 180°-rotatable microphone, extendable monopod, and adjustable phone mount make it suitable for recording live music performances, podcasting, or shooting films.

Featuring an electret condenser mic element, a unidirectional cardioid polar pattern, and a 50 Hz to 15 kHz frequency response, the microphone stick can extend from 7 to 33" in length. The phone mount is adjustable from 90 to 360° and features a 1/8" headphone jack. In addition, it is compatible with 1/4" tripods.

Finally, the microphone stick will work with iPhones (4 and up to 6), iPod Touch (5th Gen and up), and Android phones running the Camera 360 app.

Capture Sound from Any Angle with a Rotating Mic
The microphone rotates to match the camera orientation, making it easy to capture great sound no matter where your camera's pointed—whether you're filming yourself or the world around you. The mic itself rotates a full 180° and can record from nearly any angle
Take Photos and Videos with the Touch of a Button
A built-in shutter button lets you take photos and videos automatically without a Bluetooth connection. With just the touch of a button, you can start and stop recording or take a once-in-a-lifetime shot
Connect to Your Smartphone via the Headphone Jack
A 3.5mm headphone jack allows you to connect the microphone to your smartphone, iOS or Android, and record audio from any angle. The headphone jack also serves as an analog connection for your smartphone, so you don't need to power the microphone stick with batteries
Stage the Right Shot with an Adjustable Selfie Stick
To broaden your camera's field of view, the monopod phone mount is adjustable and can achieve angles between 90 and 360°. For greater reach, the telescoping microphone stick also extends from 7" when collapsed up to 33" in length. Additionally, a built-in tripod mount at the base makes it easy to connect to standard 1/4" tripods
Carry the Microphone Stick Anywhere
The Microphone Stick is designed for the road. Its lightweight and ultra-portable design makes it ideal for recording high-quality audio and video wherever you go

    Resident Audio RARCS2 reviews

    RCS-2 Microphone Stick for Smartphones is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion for Outings It woks great with iPhone 6S Plus, LG V10 and Lumia 1520, so it supports most of the OS. Most innovative feature is that we can rotate the mic and it is a great feature especially when we use in the Zoo and Parks while filming the videos

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from iPhone 6+ good stick. holder too small for larger phones and their casing

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did I really need this? I wanted a stick for use with my iPhone. This was on sale so bought it. I haven't had an opportunity of using it yet. I figured the mic was an added feature but in retrospect wonder how much I'll really use it. I may update this post after I have some experience with the unit. At least it will get the iPhone out there away from me so I can take a picture of myself.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am returning back Great idea but poor sound capturing with unknown noise while it records.
    Date published: 2016-11-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice gadget for the price; tripod attachment-MEH It serves two important purposes: 1. ability to elevate your smartphones for shooting video at an interesting angle; and 2. having a reasonable microphone incorporated when you do it instead of the smartphone's insipid internal one. And for those uses, I am pleased. As for using it as a self-aggrandizing selfie stick? Who cares. Its one negative: the built-in tripod mount at the base is less than stellar, using only the plastic handle tubing for support (see image of tripod mount). If you extend the stick all the way and then place it on a tripod, at some point in its use, it WILL crack the handle tube and your rig will tumble from the tripod-much to your chagrin. So if you plan on using it that way, you should probably reinforce the bottom. I suggest you try a SMALL hose clamp to bolster the tube just at the bottom of the handle at the tripod mount. (see hose clamp image) NOTE: Be sure not to tighten the clamp too tight-just enough to provide additional structural integrity at the bottom, or you could crack the handle tube that way . . . .

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun Option for Smartphone Audio quality is OK, certainly better than smartphone. Haven't used it as much as I thought I would.
