I've been looking for something exactly like this for years, to replace multiple expensive wireless mics. Prior to this I've demoed a dozen lousy little USB microphone clip-on thingys, which are primarily designed for long recording durations, not quality recordings.
If nothing else, this Instamic will be a great backup when using a traditional mic setup. Thanks again for posting.
Another thing to be aware of is since the features of this Insta-mic is controlled via iPhone or Android, you better be sure that the software is compatible with the version of the device you have.
The reason I mention this, a friend just gave me an HTC RE video cam the other day and all the features are remote controlled via smart phone, similar to how this Insta-mic is. I have a Motorola Android and CANNOT load the software because when I install it I get the error: This software is not compatible with your version. I go to the Settings to download the latest version of Android OS and I get a message that my phone IS on the latest version and can't down load the latest Android version!
I can take videos w/ the HTC RE but I cannot get the streaming monitor and access the features. The HTC RE doesn't make a bluetooth software for PC & I don't think the Insta-mic does either. So I'm starting to think, if the next version of Android or iPhone is not compatible w/ these devices we may be stuck w/ gear that are obsolete.
Another thing there's no way to change out the li-ion batteries so when these things die, I guess you'll have to hack the device, hoping not to break it and replace it.
So after the nightmare I went thru w/ the HTC RE "smart" interface I would probably not buy any device that's controlled by a "smart" interface... jus' sayin' (:
