The Olympus LS-20M Linear PCM Recorder answers the age-old question: "Is that a miniature studio in your pocket, or are you just happy to record me?" With its dual condenser mics capable of recording 24-bit / 96kHz PCM audio, and a built-in camcorder that can capture full 1080p high-definition video, the LS-20M fuses the best of both worlds, creating a feast for eyes and ears.
One of the cooler-looking gadgets to hit the video and audio shelves (virtually speaking), this recorder is also one of the smallest at just over 5 inches (13cm) long and weighing in at a featherweight 5.4 ounces (154g). But it packs a lot of power into its handheld form factor. Taking advantage of Olympus' history with both cameras and handheld audio recorders, the LS-20M lets you record audio in either professional-level WAV files or the more consumer-friendly MP3 format, while giving you the option of capturing H.264 video in one of three resolutions: 1080p, 720p, or 480p. Everything is recorded to the included 2GB SD memory card or to any SD/SDHC card up to 32GB.
Of course, the ability to monitor what you're recording is crucial for optimal results, and the LS-20M provides a 2" color LCD screen for reviewing your video and an LCD audio meter just beneath it to view and adjust levels. A 3.5mm (1/8") headphone jack and 3.5mm microphone jack are also included for monitoring by ear and recording with an external microphone. Your final production is then easily played back on an HDTV or computer, or streamed live to the Web via Ustream. Whether recording parties, performances, weddings, or just goofing around, the LS-20M is the perfect pocket companion.
