The OSMO camera is without a doubt a superb device for single shooters who need to capture action, whilst on the move.

The SportsMyk is extremely versatile, especially when it doubles up as a lavaliere style/lapel microphone. We have received feedback that the SportsMyk has performed better than more traditional lapel microphones under certain situations. Quite often lapel microphones can be very unforgiving to the sounds of clothes rustling as the microphone is pinned so close to […]
