DSLR-kamerear blir i dag benyttet til å gjøre høykvalitets videoinnspillinger - både av profesjonelle og av aktive amatører. Nå leverer Tascam "the missing link" for alle disse brukerne.
Tascams DR-60DmkII er generasjon to av Tascams lydopptaker for film- og videoskapere som benytter DSLR-kameraer til levende bilde. I en årrekke har filmskapere testet ut forskjellige måter å ta opp lyd på – og forsøkt å få dette til å fungere sammen med kameraløsninger som originalt er utviklet for å fungere til billedtagning. Tascam er med sin nye DR-60DmkII svaret mange har ventet på. DR-60D fungerer perfekt til alle som benytter de prisgunstige DSLR-kameraene til høykvalitets videoopptak, og er en kjærkommen løsning til aktive amatører og profesjonelle. DR-60D er en 4-spors ”solid-state recorder” og benytter utskiftbare media-kort slik som SD og SDHC. Her er det ingen slitedeler som ikke tåler et aktivt bruk, og hele løsningen er svært solid og robust oppbygget.
Tascams nyeste og kvalitetsmessig beste forforsterkere er benyttet (såkalt HDDA pre-amps), og med påkostede AD/DA-konvertere er du sikret de aller beste opptakene, og kan koble til dine beste mikrofoner for den optimale lydkvalitet. I versjon 2 får du hele 64dB gain, noe som skal være nok for selv de mest tungdrevne kameramikrofoner. Enheten er passer perfekt under kameraet ditt. Håndstøy fra DR-60D er nærmest eliminert da den har lekre ”soft touch” knapper og datahjul. Selve brukergrensesnittet er også enkel å betjene, slik at alle skal kunne nyttiggjøre seg av funksjoner som Auto Record og Tascams ”Dual Record Safety Track Mode”, en funksjon som tar opp to stereo-spor, hvor det ene stereoparet alltid ligger 12dB lavere, slik at man har litt å gå på i forhold til uventede og kraftige signaler. DR-60D er helt unik på markedet, og noe alle som bruker DSLR til video-opptak bør vurdere.

Notes in red are new functions of the DR60mkII
The DR-60D MKII is a compact 4-track audio recorder for dedicated use with a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) or digital single-lens mirrorless (DSLM) camera as a video system. It can be mounted directly to the camera and offers various audio inputs and outputs to allow the recording of high-resolution audio material in parallel to, but separated from the camera and its video data.
The recorder features Tascam original HDDA microphone preamps which are known for high S/N ratio, low input-referred noise and low distortion. Recordings can be made at 44.1/48/96 kHz, 16/24-bit in WAV or BWF format. In addition to ordinary stereo recording, it is possible to record up to four channels simultaneously which can then be mixed down to a stereo signal. Recording levels can be adjusted independently for inputs 1, 2 and 3–4 and the Dual Recording function allows two files to be recorded in parallel at different levels.
The DR-60D MKII can output high-quality audio to a DSLR/DSLM camera to be recorded there as a reference track, and a camera input enables convenient monitoring of audio sent from a DSLR camera. Mid-side decoding, slate tone functions (automatic/manual), selectable time delay and other functions for convenient recording are also available.
High-Quality HDDA(High Definition Discrete Architecture) Mic Preamps
High quality mic preamps are a necessity for high-grade sound. The DR-60D's HDDA mic preamplifirers utilize discrete circuitry and premium parts approved after months of evaluation tests. The HDDA s circuit achieves an incredibly high EIN (-120dBu). In addition, CIRRUS LOGIC's AD converter (made famous on the DR-40 linear PCM recorder) is installed to ensure high-lineality recording from any input signal
4 Inputs, 3 Outputs and Simultaneous 4 Track Recording with Mixer Controls Built-In
The DR-60D can record up to 4-tracks simultaneously allowing for various mic set-ups. Inputs 1/L and 2/R can be selected for monaural operation or stereo link operation. There are 3 outputs at one's disposal. A CAMERA OUT for reference track recording to the camera, LINE OUT to run to a mixer, and a Headphone Out for direct monitoring. (In 4CH mode, 1/L and 2/R inputs cannot be selected for monaural operation.) The DR-60D supplies mixing functionality to all 4 tracks. Adjust PAN, Level, Limiters, HPF (40/80/120Hz) and Delay easily from the user-friendly set-up. TASCAM is well known for having the easiest to use controls in the market. The DR-60D is ready to use right out of the box with its external, non-menu-intensive controls.
Multiple Record Modes (Including Dual "Safety Track" Record Mode) for Self-Tailored Recording
The DR-60D can be tailored further to one's recording needs with the various record modes. Choose between:
MONO/DUAL MONO mode：These modes are ideal for single source shooting STEREO/DUAL STEREO mode：These modes are ideal for shooting with a stereo or mid-side microphone 4CH mode：This mode is ideal for all-around movie shooting. For example, you can record two sources separately plus one stereo microphone all simultaneously.
DUAL MONO and DUAL STEREO mode automatically provide a back-up safety track in case the initial levels where set too high and clips/peaks were encountered. The safety track can be set to record from -6dB to -12dB lower than the initial take.
Soft-Touch Keys to Eliminate Handling Noise and Various Other Features such as the Slate Function were Designed Specifically for DSLR Use
Every aspect of the DR-60D is designed specifically for DSLR Audio for Video Recording. The keys of the unit are designed specifically for quiet operation to eliminate handling noise. The Slate feature is designed to mark tracks easily while in production. The input and output layout is designed for versatile use. Whether the device is used under a camera, on a rig or strapped around a solitary sound engineer, TASCAM's DR-60D will meet all on-site audio production needs.
Convenient Features Ideal for DSLR Shooting
Dedicated CAMERA OUT Provides Simultaneous Recording between DSLR and the DR-60D
The CAMERA OUT connector outputs the sound mixed internally on the DR-60D. This output is equipped with an adjustable level control dial due to the lack of input level control on most DSLR's. This ensures a quality reference track is recorded onto your camera. Everything being recorded to the SD card can be sent to the camera - including slate tones - to make sync easier.
Versatile Slate Tone Generator Provides Easy-Adjustments for On-Site Movie Editing
The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Slate tones can be generated from 2 operation modes;
Automatic：OFF/HEAD(rec start)/HEAD+TAIL(rec start and end) (You can select duration of the slate tone: 0.5/1/2/3 sec)
Manual：Push the SLATE button for tone. (In HOLD, the SLATE button is disabled for mistake prevention.)
Channels 3 & 4 - 3.5mm Input Connector Supports High-Output Video Camera Microphones
The channels 3&4 input connector supports high-level maximum input up to +10dBV and have plug-in power available. Most video camera microphones are high-level output and equipped with a 3.5mm output connector.
Tripod Socket Placed on the Bottom and a Screw for Camera Attachment Placed on Top
The DR-60D can be placed between a DSLR Camera and a tripod, or mounted to a rig easily. In addition, the bracket of the top panel can be removed when you wish to attach the DR-60D to stabilizers.
510g Light-Weight Body Designed for Rugged Portability
The DR-60D's body was manufactured with very rigid plastic for a durable but lightweight design. TASCAM understands how important weight is to ensure one is getting the right shots and steady camera movement when filmmaking. In adiition to weight, the DR-60D is extremely compact while remaining feature-rich. Only 133mm (5.25") wide, the DR-60D will not interfere with any normal camera operation. Also, all batteries can be replaced without removing the device from the Camera or tripod / rig.
Optional remote controller
This unit has a REMOTE jack for connecting a TASCAM RC-3F footswitch-type remote control or TASCAM RC-10 wired remote control (both sold separetely) that can be used to operate the unit.
