High Resolution Audio Recorder/Mixer
for DSLR Video Production
Many DSLRs can now capture HD video. Those that have microphone inputs
have pretty poor quality microphone preamplification. Most do not have
headphone monitoring or metering capabilities, and none have on-board
audio mixers. Enter the purpose built Fostex DC-R302.
The DC-R302 is a professional solid state stereo recorder with an
on-board 3-channel microphone/line mixer. These features along with
Fostex's famously outstanding in-built microphone preamplifers complete
today's HD video-capable DSLRs making them truly good enough for
commercial output. Recording pristine quality stereo audio direct to SD
cards, the DC-R302 enables your DSLR to be used in field production
applications by simplifying the capture process, allowing the camera
operator to operate the recorder and camera at the same time. Its Remote
Start function allows the DSLR camera’s video recording to start/stop in
sync with the DC-R302's REC button (uses infra-red or wired connection).
Housed in a rugged, extruded aluminium chassis the DC-R302 combines
Fostex’s usual high pedigree of electronic engineering and mechanical
construction with a compact footprint and high-quality componentry. Main
features of this no-compromise unit include up to 24bit/96kHz stereo
recording to SDHC cards, 3 channel mic/line mixer with XLR inputs, 48V
Phantom Power, limiters and high pass filters, slate tone, flexible
on-board headphone monitoring, remote DSLR control and large LCD
In short the Fostex DC-R302
has been designed from the ground up as an all-in-one DSLR audio
solution: 3 XLR inputs, headphone monitoring, metering & stereo
recording. Brilliantly done.
