This is exactly why I haven’t bought such a device yet. Thanks for the update. Now that IOS 11 is in use, does anyone have a recommendation for an SD card reader with files app access?
I really just need one for audio. I can use the apple card reader for video files and I can air drop footage from my iPhone, shot with filmic pro, over to my iPad
The only alternative I can see if you were really desperate to have separate audio not recorded directly to the video file, and you didn’t have a laptop to transfer the files to your iPad, is to use a separate iOS device, like an iPod Touch, with a TTRS lav mic, and air drop the audio from that to your iPad for editing.
But that’s really going over the top.
I’m lucky that Samson provided me with their new digital GoMicMobile that connects with the lightening port and can receive two inputs from separate transmitters, but if I really prefer to record audio separately for safety.
