If you need to record audio in the field, you'll need a portable recorder. There are lots of recorders to choose from so we put together a handy comparison table
Included in the comparison are the recorders we've supplied most often lately: the Edirol R-09, Marantz PMD-660, the Fostex FR2-LE, the Tascam HD-P2 and the HHB Flash Mic (because it is so neat!). You can see the recorders and compare all the specifications by clicking here. Later in the week we'll do something similar for monitor speakers.
