Olympus LS-100 Accessible Creativity
Video on a still camera is trending as the sensor size and lens options provide such accessible creativity. However, many still cameras are still let down by the audio quality so a separate recorder is desireable.
- Recording for two independent, simultaneous tracks
- Mic up two people separately during a recording
- Mix up to 8 tracks on the machine without having to go back to your laptop
Olympus have almost unwittingly plugged that gap with the LS Series born out of their expertise in mobile speech products. Initially, it was with single track machines (like the original LS-10) setting new standards in the ‘studio quality in your pocket’ category for recording live music or mobile sound for mixing later. The latest Stereo PCM (uncompressed file format) machine from Olympus is the LS-100 and it can offer recording for two independent, simultaneous tracks. Mic up two people separately during a recording – or perhaps one for dialogue and one for ambient.
You can even mix up to 8 tracks on the machine without having to go back to your laptop. Or simply use it to capture superior sound on location with this truly portable device.
Look coooool for under £400.
