This box sits between your tripod and your camera and allows you to use professional microphones on your rig. The Tascam DR60D Mk II takes a SD card and can record directly to that but it also passes the audio through to the 3.5mm stereo audio input on your camera.
With a stereo 3.5mm input as well as two XLR inputs, the Dr-60D Mk II can actually record four channels. There are controls to mix down to two channels to send to your camera. All four channels are recorded separately on the SD card.
With phantom power and gain controls on all channels, it’s such a handy bit of kit. Over the years, I’ve done a lot of video and since the early days, I’ve noticed how the quality of audio can easily render a really good video, absolutely useless. With a pair of really nice microphones, this box ensures that the audio component of your video will be as good as your video!
