    The Giz Wiz Show 1639 for Sept 8th 2017, Our 122nd Independent Production. 

    We're into our third year of Independent Production thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. 

    Forget the selifie stick. This is way more professional. 


    From Movo Photo comes The Movo Smartphone Video Rig with Stereo Microphone, Grip Handle, & Wrist Strap. It's designed to improve the production value of your smartphone video and said to be perfect for live-streaming, vlogging, interviews, performances and more! Actually, I like this device. As you'll see in the video I wish the handle was a bit longer and there was an LED light to tell you the mic was on, but all else seems good. The universal mounting clamp fits smartphones 2.2" to 3.6" wide including the iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy Note. Movo says their easy to grip padded handle (removable) assists with stabilizing your video, but there's no gimbal or anything else to assist you. An adjustable wrist strap provides a sense of security by preventing accidental drops. The Stereo Microphone has a selectable 90° or 120° pickup pattern and a frequency response of 35-20k Hz, Signal to Noise: 74dB according to Movo. The kit also includes a foam & a furry windscreen. The mic kit is just under $57.00 and it's Amazon Prime.
