15Nov Tascam DR 70d tripod mount is junk

I picked up the Tascam DR 70D a few months ago to replace my Tascam DR 60D. The DR 60D has been a great unit over the last few years and still does a decent job, but the attractive size of the new DR 70D tempted me into an upgrade. There are a number of […]

28Mar Azden FMX vs Beachtek DXA vs Juicedlink RM333 vs Tascam DR-60d test and comparison video

As promised, here’s a comparison between the Azden FMX-DSLR, Beachtek DXA-SLR, Juicedlink RM333 Riggy, and the Tascam DR-60d.

14Jun Zoom h6 Pre-orders $399

I mentioned the announcement of the Zoom h6 awhile back and it’s finally shown up for pre-order on B&H. Looks like Zoom is including both the XY capsule as well as the mid-side microphone module in the initial $399 price tag. Part of me likes the idea of having all of those inputs and controls in a […]

21Apr Tascam DR-60D Audio testing with samples

Here are the audio tests you’ve been asking for of the Tascam DR-60D.  This first sample is taken directly from the 5d mark III which is fed from the camera out port on the left hand side of the Tascam DR-60D. The output volume control on that port is set to 10. In this case the DR-60D is […]

13Apr Tascam DR-60D close up and personal

I had the chance to unbox the Tascam DR-60D this morning. The box contains the DR-60D, a manual, and a USB cable, nothing else. No memory card, no neck strap, and no 3.5mm cables are included. Tascam has stripped the unit down to the bare escentuals. I haven’t had a chance to do many audio tests […]

12Apr Tascam DR-60D first impressions

I spent almost an hour hanging around the Tascam booth playing with the new Tascam DR-60D. Buttons and controls felt good and the interface seems pretty straight forward. If you’ve used other tascam devices in the past you shouldn’t have any problem finding your way around the DR-60D’s menu system. The test microphone provided at the booth sounded good […]

10Apr Boom pole mounting option for your field recorder

If you’re looking for a low profile option that allows you to mount your field recorder directly to a boom pole this could be an easy way to go. Basically it’s just a small clamp from a friction arm combined with the very low price metal quick release plates I posted awhile back. It doesn’t […]
