Fostex’s DC-R302 DSLR Mixer/Recorder is Designed for Video Audio Recording

Fostex has tackled the audio for video recording market with its DC-R302, a professional stereo recorder with on-board three channel audio mixer designed for use with video-capable DSLRs.

Recording stereo audio direct to SD cards, Fostex said the DC-R302 not only allows DSLRs to be easily used in field production applications, it also simplifies the capturing process allowing the camera operator to operate the recorder and camera at the same time.

Housed in a rugged, extruded aluminium chassis, the DC-R302 combines a high degree of electrical engineering and mechanical construction with a compact footprint and high-quality components.

Main features of this no-compromise unit include up to 24bit/96kHz stereo recording to SDHC cards, three channel mic/line mixer with XLR inputs, 48 volt phantom power, limiters and high pass filters, slate tone, flexible on-board headphone monitoring, remote DSLR control and large LCD metering.

An optional remote control, the Model EX-RT1, increases the operable cameras from Canon EOS 5Dmk2 only by the DC-R302 itself to more than ten other models including Nikon and Panasonic models including both infrared and wired connection. The EX-RT1 can be attached to the DC-R302 with a screw driver.

The mixer is priced at $699, while the remote is priced at $59.99. Remote cables for various camera models are priced at about $25.00.
