    I record most of my YouTube Videos with my iPhone 4s as the quality it creates is pretty impressive, and more then ample for YouTube. The main downside is the mic - although it's pretty good, it's a little quite since it doesn't point in the direction of the video.

    I have a Blue Snowball mic on order, to be used for general podcasting and when recording video tutorials on my mac etc.

    I understand one can use the camera connection kit to record audio on iPad. Rather then doing this can I use the same kit to connect the mic to my iPhone so that the audio is recorded from the mic while creating a video?

    I don't believe so. The camera connection kit does't work on the iPhone at all, as far as I know. You only other option is buying a mic specifically for the iPhone, like the Tascam iM2. It's stereo, great quality, uses the dock connector, and can be turned to point front, top or back. There are other mic options, but for unidirectional, this one is great.
