TASCAM looks to DSLR videographers with DR-701D

Published:

Taking the position of TASCAM’s flagship recorder for ‘single-shooter video production’, the DR-701D is intended to serve the burgeoning number of videographers using DSLR equipment to capture footage.

Described as constructed from a ‘lightweight yet rigid’ magnesium alloy chassis, the 6-channel (four tracks plus left-right stereo mix) recorder includes a number of features more usually associated with higher-end equipment. A timecode generator is included for location reference, which can be jam synced from a SMPTE generator, camera, or smart slate. HDMI I/O allows a DSLR camera to start recording on both devices, and video clock is onboard to prevent drift between sound and picture.

Additionally, the built-in mixer offers pan and level adjustment plus a delay function to compensate for the distances between connected microphones. For additional tracks, multiple units can be cascaded together. One-touch operation is possible (depending on the camera’s firmware), meaning a user can trigger audio and video recording by pressing a single button on the camera. Finally, tripod mounts on the top and bottom of the unit allow for it to be mounted beneath a camera, attached to a follow-focus cage, or used in standalone mode.
