Compact camcorder with superb audio recording capabilities. Designed especially for live performances, the unit also makes it easy to share video online. Audio of live events can be captured by a 120° X/Y stereo mic in linear PCM format for vibrant presence, and video by a Carl Zeiss lens with a 120° FOV. Their unique, vertically stacked inline arrangement was inevitable, after careful consideration of what form a truly hi-fi HD camcorder must take. The U-shaped stainless steel mic guard lends overall coherence and distinguishes this unit as a high-performance recorder.
