This B&H Kit
includes everything you need for convenient audio recording with an HDSLR camera. The heart of the kit is the Tascam DR-40
audio recorder, which offers pro-quality audio in a compact design. It can capture WAV or MP3 files to SD/SDHC flash memory cards, and a 16
card is included so you can store hours of recordings. The recorder has adjustable condenser microphones, as well as XLR and 1/4" combo inputs to accept external sound sources. A USB 2.0 connector lets you transfer recordings to a computer.
The kit also includes a Pearstone Accessory Shoe Adapter
, which has 1/4-20 threading so you can attach the recorder to your camera's accessory shoe via the threaded tripod socket. A Whirlwind WHH4NL 3.5 MON
cable is included, which connects to the recorder's output and attenuates the audio signal to the proper mic level for the camera's input. The cable is 1' long to eliminate excess slack and tangling. The cable also has a 3.5mm headphone jack for convenient monitoring with the included Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Additional components of the kit include a Windscreen to reduce the effects of wind noise when recording outside.
