I love my Droid, but sometimes I see an iPhone gadget that makes me just a little envious. Add this boom mic to that growing list. There are, at last count, about three million iPhone lens attachments, wheels, filters and other doo dads for capturing the best visuals from your phone. Unless you have an ADR studio in your basement, recording the best possible sound during your production is just as key as picture. Photojojo now has available a boom mic attachment that gets inserted into the headphone jack and adjusts to be held in place, even over an existing case. The mic has a switch for toggling between long-distance ambient sound and a more precise up close and personal sound for interviews or dialogue. The mic itself is a pocket-sized 4 inches and runs on a single AAA battery. It’s available now for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch for $40.
