You need to stand out from the crowd of vlogs, livestreams, YouTube videos, and social media posts—and you can easily do that with the Rode Vlogger Kit iOS Edition, a complete package designed specifically for hassle-free, high-quality audio and video recording to a smartphone with a Lightning port.

This bundle features the Rode VideoMic Me-L ultracompact condenser microphone as well as an on-camera light with a diffuser and eight colored filters. Also included are a tripod, a phone holder, and the required accessories to make it all work, such as a clip mount, a furry windscreen, and a USB-C cable. The mic itself is ideal for content creators who can't be slowed down by an intricate setup. Equipped with the Vlogger Kit iOS Edition, you can turn your smartphone into a portable, convenient production system that will markedly improve the caliber of your sound and picture.

Setting up the Kit
What You Get
The Vlogger Kit iOS Edition comes with everything you need (and more) to easily start recording quality video and audio with your iPhone or iPod, so you can shoot your next vlog, Instagram story, Facebook Live session, YouTube special, or behind-the-scenes footage looking and sounding better than ever.

  • VideoMic Me-L ultracompact condenser microphone
  • Shock-absorbing rubber clip
  • WS9 furry windshield to drastically reduce wind noise
  • SmartGrip phone holder and compact tripod stand
  • MicroLED on-camera light with clip-on diffuser and eight colored filters
  • USB Type-C cable for recharging the MicroLED on-camera light
How It Works
Unbox the Vlogger Kit iOS Edition with confidence, knowing that all you have to supply is your mobile device and an idea for your next shoot. In a few simple steps, you'll be set up and ready to roll.

  • Mount the phone holder atop the tripod stand and secure your iPhone or iPod in the phone holder 
  • Attach the MicroLED light to the phone holder and plug the microphone into the Lightning port of your iPhone/iPod
  • Turn on the MicroLED light, open your app of choice, and begin filming

To monitor audio from the mic or from playback of your recording, just connect headphones to the 3.5mm port on the microphone.

Microphone Features
Durable and Small
At under 2.9" long and 1 ounce light, the VideoMic Me-L is an unobtrusive companion for your smartphone and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.
Condenser Mic with Directional Sound Pickup
Whereas most built-in smartphone microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its directional condenser element delivers more detailed audio than the mics typically found in mobile devices.
Easy Connection to Smartphone
Since the VideoMic Me-L is outfitted with a Lightning connector, it can plug directly into the Lightning port of your iPhone or iPod, no cable or adapter required. A rubber clip is included to ensure stable and secure attachment to your mobile device.
Powered by Your Mobile Device
The VideoMic Me-L runs on power from your mobile device, so no batteries are required to operate it. Just connect the microphone to your iPhone/iPod and forget about swapping or charging batteries.
Headphone Port
With the VideoMic Me-L, there's no guessing whether your audio sounds good. Its 3.5mm output lets you plug in headphones for convenient real-time monitoring while the mic remains connected to your mobile device. It also allows you to listen to playback of your recorded content.
24-Bit Digital Resolution
The integrated analog-to-digital converter operates at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz for industry-standard signal quality and compatibility with most audio and video recording apps.
Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise
The VideoMic Me-L includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.
SmartGrip Features
Smartphone Mounting
The SmartGrip is a high-quality solution for mounting a smartphone on a tripod. It features rugged metal construction with rubberized grips and is suitable for mounting phones from 2.6 to 3.4" in width.
Extra Mounting Points
The SmartGrip features a cold shoe mount for easy attachment of Rode VideoMics and other accessories. Three 1/4" thread attachment points allow for easy mounting on tripods and grips in a range of orientations.
Tripod 2 Features
Supports a Variety of Devices
The Tripod 2 is a sturdy three-position tripod for mounting cameras, microphones, and other accessories.
Closed or Open Positions
In the closed position, the Tripod 2 is perfect for handheld use. The tripod legs can also be opened out to a mid or wide setting for optimal positioning and stability.
1/4" Thread
The Tripod 2 has a 1/4" thread for attaching cameras and camera accessories.
MicroLED Features
Compact and Rechargeable
The MicroLED is a compact rechargeable on-camera light. It is ideal for vlogging, newsgathering, mobile filmmaking, and documentary production.
Adjustable Brightness
The MicroLED features four adjustable brightness settings, and a clip-on diffuser with eight colored filters.
Over Four Hours of Run Time
Power is supplied via the USB Type-C charging port, which both charges the internal battery and can also operate the light. Run time is over four hours at low brightness.

I have a case, which is open enough for charging my phone. Can I connect the mic without removing the case?
Asked by: Birgit
Although you are able to connect a Lightning cable to your phone with the case attached, it is not possible to say with certainty whether or not the mic fit while the case is attached. The Lightning connector on the mic is attached directly to the mic's body and the mic is designed to fit flush against the phone. You will have to test it to see if the case provides enough clearance around the Lightning port to accommodate the mic. The only way to know for sure is to try it out.

Could this be used vertically?

Could this be used vertically?
Asked by: Eder
Yes, it could be used vertically but the kit was designed to be used horizontally for compatibility with the various accessories. The phone grip has three 1/4" mounting points so it can be mounted sideways to hold the phone vertically (portrait style). In doing so, you will be limited on options for mounting other accessories and may need to have the phone turned so that the mic is positioned on top.
