The DC-R302 3-Channel Audio Mixer and Stereo Recorder by Fostex is a professional, portable audio recorder designed specifically for use with DSLR cameras. It features three XLR mic preamps each with its own limiter, high pass filter, volume control and 48V phantom power. With its onboard line-mixer and rugged, extruded aluminum chassis the DC-R302 is an ideal solution for field recording. It also helps simplify the capture process by allowing you to operate the recorder and camera simultaneously.

Not only does the DC-R302 capture and sync high-quality 24bit/96kHz audio with your DSLR's video footage, it also offers metering capabilities and a built-in headphone monitoring system. The DC-R302 captures directly to SDHC cards and transfers both audio and data via USB.

The DC-R302 includes a DSLR mounting bracket, allowing a camera to mount its top panel. 3 screw holes on the bottom panel allow the DC-R302 to be mounted on a tripod.
