DR-60D offers audio recording for DSLR
TASCAM’s DR-60D is a new audio recording solution that has been designed for on-set filmmakers and videographers using DSLR cameras. The new four-track solid-state DSLR recorder employs high-grade pre-amplifiers, D/A converters and a durable, lightweight structure, which reportedly fits into any camera or rig.
The unit is capable of recording up to 96kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight to an SD/SDHC card. Filmmakers have two ¼-inch XLR locking combo MIC/LINE inputs and a single 3.5mm stereo MIC input at their disposal in addition to camera in, camera out, line out and headphone out connections. Both XLR combo inputs supply +48V phantom power for which the 3.5mm input supplies plug-in power for microphones requiring a bias voltage.
The body structure, soft-touch keys and dials have been designed specifically to help eliminate handling noise. The multiple record modes include four-channel record, auto record and TASCAM’s dual record ‘safety track’.
