The Datavideo DN-60 Digital CF Card Recorder provides hours of high-definition recording without the hassle of tapes. Being shock-proof, the recorder can be used in open-air environments like construction sites, forests, etc. The built-in time-lapse feature offers high-quality microscope recording and animations, making it ideal for medical research, natural history, or architectural video recording. The CF card recorder is also suitable for news broadcasts, as the turn-around time from shoot to edit to air is shorter.

With an 8-second pre-record buffer, the recorder is useful in science research, outdoor recording or security applications for recording unexpected events. Flexible mounting options include a tripod or hot-shoe; the recorder can also be mounted onto camcorders using a Datavideo camera mounting kit.

Each CF card has a unique volume name so that multiple cards can be used for one shooting session without confusion. With 99 bins for storing clips, and up to 97 clips per bin, identifying and accessing footage on a card becomes easier. By disabling the Sync to Tape (STO) feature, you can directly record onto the card without a tape inside the camera.

The recorder is powered by an external 6.0 VDC power source or by 4 AA batteries that provide more than 2 hours of continuous recording time.
