Tascam DR-10SG

Support for MP3 recording at both 128kbps and 192kbps
An all-new shotgun capsule was designed by TASCAM for the DR-10SG. The super-cardioid pickup pattern picks up sound in the direction it is pointing, rejecting ambient noise and reverberation. The design of this microphone is purpose-built to capture your subject's voice from your camera, without noise from traffic, surf, echo, and other distractions.

Level meters are now active during both recording and playback
Level meters were previously active only during input monitoring. With V2.00 they are live during recording and playback as well.

Level selection with dual recording function added
The dual recording function enables simultaneous creation of a backup "safety recording" at a lower level. Previously, this backup track was fixed at -6 dB lower than the main track. A new option of -12 dB now been added.

POLY file dual recordings
POLY file mode can be used to record a mono sound source input as a stereo file. V2.00 also supports dual recording when in this mode.

Overall performance improvements
Overall performance has been enhanced, and microSD card writing/processing has been improved.
 

Capture audio that sounds as good as your image looks

Custom designed, high-performance shotgun microphone

An all-new shotgun capsule was designed by TASCAM for the DR-10SG. The super-cardioid pickup pattern picks up sound in the direction it is pointing, rejecting ambient noise and reverberation. The design of this microphone is purpose-built to capture your subject's voice from your camera, without noise from traffic, surf, echo, and other distractions.

DR-10SG

Camera shoe attachment with shockmount for maximum mobility

The DR-10SG?s built-in shoe mount adapter attaches it directly to the camera while staying out of your way. Even when guerilla shooting or grabbing hand-held shots, the DR-10SG focuses on your subject for great-sounding results.

DR-10SG

Four EQ presets to match the subject and setting

The DR-10SG's built-in equalizer tailors the recording to sound best in your environment. It includes the following four presets:

NATURAL: Flat response for a natural-sounding recording.
STANDARD: Standard EQ for a video camera shotgun mic, adding clarity.
INTERVIEW: EQ optimized for voice recordings in interviews, conversations and similar scenes.
FIELD: Ideal EQ for recording sound effects and other background sounds.

High-quality audio that's simple to use

The DR-10SG provides digital recording with the convenience of a camera accessory. Detailed electrical design includes rejection of power supply and camera noise in a compact design. Controlled listening tests during the design stage led to consisent improvements in the design, from the best shotgun capsule design to the need for high-performance capacitors in the power supply.

Shock mount mechanism and noise isolation arm reduce handling and lens operation noise

A floating shock mount mechanism sits between the recorder and the shoe mount, reducing vibration and other noise transmitted from the camera body. Also included, a noise isolation arm moves the recorder away from the camera, lens, and other sources of noise. This is especially useful to reduce noise generated by autofocus motors.

Audio from the DR-10SG Camera Out jack can be recorded on the camera

DR-10SG

The DR-10SG has an output jack for DSLR and video cameras. Connecting this to the camera allows it to record a copy of the sound that the DR-10SG picked up. This allows the audio recorded on camera to be higher quality, and makes it simple to syncronize audio with the video in your editing software.

For compatibility with many cameras that come with different input sensitivities and levels, the DR-10SG has an output volume control to avoid distortion. A custom attenuation cable maximizes signal quality when a camera has just a mic-level input. The camera out jack doubles up as a headphone output.

Slate tone simplifies synchronization with video files

A built-in generator produces slate tones providing convenient reference points for lining up video and audio files after recording. Slate tones are automatically produced when recording starts and stops. The volume of slate tones can be set to OFF, LOW or HIGH. By connecting the DR-10SG back to the camera with the included cable, the camera?s video file also gets the slate tones. If you need perfect syncronization, zoom into your editing software and line up the sine waves.

Dual recording records two files simultaneously at different levels

DR-10SG

Film-making often involves sudden audio volume jumps. An actor could decide to scream a line and a documentary subject could do almost anything. On a single-person shoot, the camera operator has enough to worry about without keeping their hand on the volume knob for dialog level changes.

The DR-10SG has several features to prevent distorted audio, but the most secure is Dual Recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level, as a safety track in case of distortion.

Automatic file closing saves file data before the battery runs out

You can always monitor the battery level on the easy-to-read Organic EL display. If the battery runs out in the middle of a recording, the unit will automatically save the file before turning off so your take isn't lost. And the case is designed so that batteroes can be changed quickly, without removing the recorder from the camera shoe mount.

Automatic level, limiter and other functions solve common recording level problems

If the input sound level is too low or too high, an automatic level function can increase or decrease the recording volume to an appropriate level. The limiter prevents distortion caused by sudden input overloads. These functions save you from worrying about recording level settings in situations when there is no second chance.

Compact and lightweight body that is only 3.9 oz. including battery

The DR-10SG has been designed to be compact and lightweight to maintain mobility even when used on the lightest and smallest cameras. The single AAA battery lasts for hours and won't put a strain on the camera's shoe mount. And the whole unit is compact enough to be held with action cameras like the GoPro.

DR-10SG

Operates for 8.5 hours continuously on a single alkaline AAA battery

One easily obtained Alkaline AAA battery powers the DR-10SG for 8.5 hours continuously. The DR-10SG can also use disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries.
