Impressive Handheld AV Recorder with
High Quality Sound
The DR-V1HD is a combined Linear PCM High-Quality Audio Recorder with HD Video. TASCAM has revolutionized
broadcast and field recording for
decades and with the release of the DR-V1HD here is another
superior product from this consistent stable. Tascam has always been focused on creating easy to
use, versatile products and with that in mind, they have developed an
affordable AV recorder with some truly useful and useable features. For
instance, the DR-V1HD has an all-in-one 180-degree rotating microphone
and camera lens assembly at the top of
the unit along with complementary feature sets and menu operations (e.g.
Balance' selections and still photography mode).
The DR-V1HD is encased in a sturdy and solid structure with an ergo
dynamic design. Tascam have continued their same sleek look as previously
released handheld recorders and included the most popular traditional rotary
control for fine-tuned and quiet input level adjustments. The layout and
control surfaces were designed to decrease any unnecessary handling noise and
produce stable filming operation.
Every fine detail was considered when Tascam constructed the DR-V1HD.
The mic placement structure was designed to rid any possible electrical
noise and it records up to 96k/24-bit audio. Amongst a host of practical
features they have included their
iconic 'Variable-Speed-Audition' as well as the ability to link any
audio file on the device to still photographs. The DR-V1HD also has an HDMI
out and a standard camera thread for use with a tripod. All in all, this
AV recorder adds a distinct and important new addition to their wide
range of popular handheld and field recorders.
Both the camera
lens and microphones rotate 180°
Having the option to rotate the
microphones and camera front and back 180 degrees increases the
possibilities for various camera angles and placement.
The DR-V1HD maintains the same high-quality audio
standards of the rest of Tascam's popular DR-Series recorders, having
the same high-quality audio circuitry. Moreover, the AD/DA is Cirrus
Logics acclaimed audio codec. So no corners have been cut just because
it's a video recorder as well - you can be quite sure of superior audio
with the DR-V1HD.
VSA varies speed not pitch Tascam's popular VSA (Variable Speed Audition)
is an integral function on the DR-V1HD - great for learning pieces.
Link audio to any photo
The DR-V1HD has three operation modes; movie, audio, and
photograph mode. The photograph mode offers the ability to take still
photos, view separately, view them in a slideshow and link any audio
files on the device to a single snap shot.
5 hours with 3 AA
Powered by three AA batteries, the DR-V1HD (in HD mode) will capture up
to 4.5 hours of continuous video shooting. In SD mode, the DR-V1HD will
capture up to 5.5 hours.
You can easily use the DR-V1HD in a
variety of differing environments because it provides appropriate
settings to accommodate your surroundings. Options include white balance
adjustments for 'Stage Lighting', 'Sunlight', and 'Cloud'. These
settings result in your video recordings looking as natural and
impressive as this remarkable recorder sounds.
