Here is how to configure your Instamic as an external wireless microphone with the Blackmagic Camera app.

Your Instamic's audio will be embedded into your video. No need to sync the audio in post :)

NOTE We recommend upgrading your Pro Plus or Plus C unit to the latest firmware (2.3.12 or newer).

Upgrade procedure here.

Let's start

1. Launch the Instamic Remote application and select Bluetooth Microphone on the Home page.

2. Tap to connect on the Connect Page and check that Hands-Profile Mode is activated

Your Instamic is now configured as a Hands-Free Profile device and it will retain its configuration at every boot (with or without connecting to the app)

3. Jump to the Capture Page and press Enable Streaming

4. Pair Instamic on the iOS Bluetooth Settings

If it was already paired, forget the device and re-pair to be sure that Instamic is recognized as a Hands-Free Device.

Two channels should be available and connected. Instamic BLE to trigger the unit and Instamic to stream the audio from Instamic to the phone (if you have renamed Instamic, the second connection will have the same name as your device's name).

5. Launch the Blackmagic Camera and select Instamic under the Audio Source


7. You are ready to record with the Instamic's audio embedded into your videos.


a. Open the Control Center to double-check that Instamic is the main audio source of your iOS device

b. Check the VU meter on the app to adjust the gain with the gain fader or tap on the input gain value (blue rectangle) to access all gain presets.
