Tried and tested: DPA d:vice
KitPlus KitPlus recently took delivery of an interesting piece of equipment for review. We like our iPhone gadgets here. For us, useful iPhone gadgets started when the Olloclip lens gave us a wide angle adaptor. This was a good start, finally evolving into a proper tool when Ziess produced the Exolens system for the 5,6 & 7 series iPhones. Around the same time as the Olloclip came out we were testing the Fostex AR4i which was a very exciting development at the time. You have a portable device, that you carry everywhere with you, connected to the world but with very limited audio capabilities. A stereo interface with decent microphones was a real boon!

Education meets industry...
Bernard Newnham Heatherden Hall - the most famous country house you've never heard of. Famous because it has appeared in large numbers of British films from Goldfinger to Carry on Camping. Why? Because it's the original building at the UK's premier film studio - Pinewood. A fitting place, then, to hold a conference on media industry training.
