Tascam's award winning DR-60D is the new audio recording
solution for filmmakers and videographers using DSLRs. For years
filmmakers have been trying different methods for recording audio, using
bulky recorders designed for music and trying to transform the inferior
audio technology built-into DSLRs. Now here is the real solution DSLR
videographers have been waiting for.
The DR-60D is a brand new 4-track solid state sound recorder utilizing
Tascam's decades of experience. The recorder utilizes high-grade HDDA
pre-amps, their legendary AD converters, and a durable but lightweight
structure and shape. This device will fit snugly under any camera or
into any rig, and record up to 96kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight
to SD/SDHC media. Filmmakers have at their disposal two 1/4"-XLR Locking
Combo MIC/LINE Inputs, 3.5mm Stereo MIC Input, Camera In, Camera Out,
Line Out and Headphone Out. Both 1/4"-XLR Combo Inputs supply +48V
Phantom Power and the 3.5mm Input supplies Plug-In Power for microphones
requiring a bias voltage.
The DR-60D is incredibly easy to use, employing Tascam's popular user
interface and external controls for every major operation. The body
structure, soft-touch keys and dials are designed to help eliminate
handling noise. The multiple record modes include 4-Channel Record, Auto
Record and Tascam's Dual Record "Safety Track" Mode making the DR-60D
one of the most versatile and highly useable recorders on the market.
