Overview
  • 1Description

The Olympus LS-100 On-Camera DSLR Audio Kit is a B&H Kit optimized for doing on-camera audio recording with Canon or Nikon DSLR cameras in video mode. The recorder is mounted on the camera using the included hot shoe adapter. The connecting cable plugs into the camera, and an extension on the cable provides for audio monitoring via the included headphones.

An SDHC memory card supplements the on-board memory for situations where extended recording is required. A remote control allows for placing the recorder controls whether it's convenient, and a windjammer helps cut down on wind noise, something that is always present except for absolutely still days.

Note: Kit will not work with the Panasonic GH2 without the addition of a suitable adapter.

  • Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track PCM Recorder

    The Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track PCM Recorder features high-quality 96kHz / 24-Bit Linear PCM recording, which captures every nuance of every note and syllable with a rich, resonant quality. With this level of digital recording, the LS-100 gives you the ability to make truly colorful, dynamic recordings almost anywhere. It also supports 44.1kHz / 16-Bit Linear PCM and MP3 format as well. MP3 recording is ideal for times when convenience and quantity are more important than quality. The LS-100 is equipped with 4GB of internal Flash memory. It also offers external memory with an SD card slot that supports cards all the way up to a capacity of 64GB.

    The LS-100's dual 90° directional stereo condenser microphones have a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, which allows them to capture a wide range of audio from the lowest audible bass frequencies to the highest audible treble frequencies. Olympus used an innovative system when designing these mics, which ensures that the entire frequency range of human hearing is captured with exceptional clarity. This design also supports a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of up to 140dB, which means you'll be able to clearly record even the loudest live performances. Plus, the LS-100's integrated stereo condenser microphones have independent left and right recording level dials, so you'll be able to maintain optimum balance, as well as make adjustments on the fly.

    Designed with pro musicians in mind, the LS-100 features 24V / 48V Phantom Power for condenser mics, ribbon mics, etc. The built-in instrumentation amplifier cuts slight noise and amplifies signals as well. This allows the use of much longer cables. Plus, with integrated left and right stereo XLR / 1/4" Phone combo jacks, it's easy to connect external mics for recording. This way, you're not limited to using just the built-in stereo condenser mics. Another sound minimizing feature is the separate audio and system circuit boards - each with their own power supply. Separate circuitry helps maintain a high signal-to-noise ratio and it eliminates cross-channel interference as well. This ensures clear signal transmission.

    Another highlight of the LS-100 is its ability to do multi-track recording and overdubbing. On the LS-100, up to 999 tracks can be recorded using the fixed 44.1kHz / 16-Bit format for CD writing. Plus, up to eight tracks can be edited simultaneously. Overdubbing lets you make a recording and then go back later to add additional parts over the original recordings. It can be used by musicians to add a supplementary recorded sound to a previously recorded performance or by vocalists to sing harmonies with themselves. The LS-100 also features functions for file editing, pre-recording, metronome, tuner, Lissajous for chords, MP3 converting, CD writing and Play Sync recording. It has hi/med/lo microphone sensitivity switches and a 100Hz / 300Hz lowcut filter.

    The LS-100 is equipped with Voice Sync and Voice Guidance as well. Voice Sync is the Olympus technology for voice activated recording, which is one of those extra benefits that saves time and energy. Voice Guidance provides voice feedback for actions, which allows the user to operate the LS-100 without looking at the backlit LCD display. For added convenience, the recorder is also equipped with a headphone jack, a 3.5 mm mic / audio line-input and an integrated speaker. The 480mW round dynamic speaker allows you to listen back instantly after making a recording. If you're a professional musician, then the benefits of the LS-100 are obvious. However, this recorder was also designed for high-quality podcasting. It also works great for journalists who prefer to listen back to ultra-clear recordings after an interview. It can even be used to build soundscapes, capture ambient noise, or even for birding and nature enthusiasts who want to record wildlife with lifelike clarity.

    High-Quality 96kHz / 24-Bit Linear PCM Recording & Two Storage Options
    The LS-100 features a fixed Linear PCM recording setting of 44.1kHz / 16-Bit. However, the recorder is capable of truly pristine 96kHz / 24-Bit Linear PCM recording, which delivers sound that's even better than what you would hear on a compact disc. Every nuance of every note and syllable is captured with a rich and resonant quality. The LS-100 gives you the ability to make truly colorful, dynamic recordings almost anywhere. Plus, for times when quality is second to convenience and quantity, you can record using the MP3 format
    Internal & External Storage Options that Support Up to 64GB of Memory
    The LS-100 is equipped with 4GB of internal Flash memory. It also has an SD card slot for recording directly onto memory cards. This external memory option supports SD cards all the way up to a capacity of 64GB
    90° Directional Stereo Condenser Microphones
    With a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, these high-quality directional microphones capture a wide range of audio from the lowest audible bass frequencies to the highest audible treble frequencies. Olympus used an innovative mic design to ensure that the entire frequency range of human hearing would be captured with exceptional clarity. This design also supports a sound pressure level (SPL) of up to 140dB, which means you'll be able to clearly record even the loudest of live performances. Plus, the LS-100's integrated stereo condenser microphones have independent left and right recording level dials, which lets you maintain optimum balance, as well as make adjustments on the fly
    Separate Audio & System Circuit Boards to Minimize Noise
    The LS-100 is equipped with separate audio processor and system circuit boards. Plus, each has its own independent power supply. Separate circuitry helps maintain a high signal-to-noise ratio. It also eliminates cross-channel interference and enables clear signal transmission
    Stereo XLR / Phone Combo Inputs & 24V / 48V Phantom Power Supply
    Designed with pro musicians in mind, the LS-100 features 24V / 48V Phantom Power for condenser mics, ribbon mics, etc. The built-in instrumentation amplifier cuts slight noise and amplifies signals, which allows the use of much longer cables. Plus, with integrated left and right stereo XLR / 1/4" Phone combo jacks, it's easy to connect external mics for recording. This way, you're not limited to using just the built-in stereo condenser mics
    Eight Track Multi-Tracking Function
    Multi-tracking and editing is a staple of professional recording and is a technique where multiple separately-recorded sounds are mixed together to create a single stream of sound. On the LS-100, up to 999 tracks can be recorded using the fixed 44.1kHz / 16-Bit format for CD writing. Plus, up to eight tracks can be edited simultaneously
    Overdubbing Function
    Overdub recording allows you to record sound over an original sound, while still being able to keep the original sound. Overdubbing has several useful applications. It can be used by musicians to add a supplementary recorded sound to a previously recorded performance and vocalists can use it to sing harmonies with themselves. With LS-100, you'll be able to make a recording and then go back later to overdub additional parts over the original recording
    Voice Activated Recording with Voice Sync
    Voice Sync lets you start your recordings, stop your recordings and then start your recordings again using only your voice to automatically initiate the record function. Voice activated recording is an extra benefit that saves time and energy, while simultaneously lowering stress and frustration for those times when you could really use a hands-free start/stop record feature
    Packed with Convenient Features
    Besides Voice Syncing, the LS-100 features functions for file editing, pre-recording, metronome, tuner, Lissajous for chords, MP3 converting, CD writing and Play Sync recording. The recorder is equipped with a hi/med/low microphone sensitivity switch and a 100Hz / 300Hz lowcut filter. It also has a headphone jack and built-in speaker for instant playback
    Live Recorder with Plenty of Uses Beyond Music
    The LS-100 is ideal for podcasting, while journalists and foley artists will appreciate the clear sound. You can even use it to build soundscapes or capture ambient noise. Plus, birding and nature enthusiasts can record wildlife with lifelike clarity

  • Auray WRW-D50 Custom Windbuster for Tascam, Sony and Olympus Digital Recorders

    The Auray WRW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

    This WRW-D50 Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit a selection of popular Tascam, Sony and Olympus digital recorders and is designed to be used on its own without the need of a foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

    When used on a Tascam, Sony or Olympus recorder, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 20dB to 30dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction.

    In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WRW-D50 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your recorder's microphone. The windbuster is designed to fit select recorders from Tascam, Sony and Olympus.

    The WRW-D50 Custom Windbuster for Tascam, Sony and Olympus Digital Recorders offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.
