Actually, the mic is on a swivel so that it can either point forward, toward the subject, backwards toward the camera operator or anywhere in between these extremes.
Lately, I'm using it to prepare web tutorials and find that pointing it backwards lets me add 'voice over' live, while I record the action.
This really cuts down the production time as does the automatic compression which makes uploading finished, edited (in the iPhone) video a snap!
Try to do all of that with a camcorder.

i would rather a real digital camera with better megapixel.

I, and likely the majority, cannot see justifying spending $129 for a chunk of cut aluminum, a lens, and a microphone simply to turn my iPhone into a mediocre camcorder. For $129 and even less you can buy a camcorder that is far superior to the iPhone for video and still image capture.

Everything is relative to what you want to accomplish.
For it's price, this Owle which includes the much better sounding mic and wide angle lens as well as the solid, very protective grip/mounting frame (with shoe my plus 4, 1/4-20 attachments) is a bargain!
It's best used for short, edited in the iPhone, compressed in the iPhone, uploaded from the iPhone,
Resolution is tv standard and is as good as that gets … the NTSC standard is the limiting factor.

$40 tops for a multicoated WA aux lens plus a custom microphone plus 8" x 8" aircraft grade aluminum machined, drilled and tapped, plus an iphone case oh, and a threaded for an lens plus the filter step down adapter.
Please, take my order for ten of yours at that price (which includes shipping, of course).

Look, you can try to justify your $129 purchase all you want. But for those of us that aren't fools, you're not very convincing. If anything, your posts keep looking more and more like astroturf.

Sorry, no time to waste on the snarky, off topic peanut gallery.
To everyone else, have a Merry Christmas!
