The DR-70D from TASCAM is the ultimate audio recording solution for filmmakers. Four balanced XLR mic inputs meet the requirements of production sound, from professional users to indie DSLR shooters. The compact format can be mounted either above or below a camera, and a pair of built-in microphones can capture sound on-set. The interface is designed for quick adjustment, with additional features to keep recording levels under control.
Four XLR mic inputs with phantom power are included on the DR-70D, enough to cover busy scenes. The High-Quality HDDA(High Definition Discrete Architecture) Mic Preamps include 64dB of gain for quiet performances, and all four inputs have individual gain controls. Each input has a limiter and low cut filter available for controlling volume. Also included is Dual Recording mode, which records a safety copy of your audio at a lower level to prevent distorted takes. Quality components like 5532 op amps are used throughout for the clearest audio possible.
Tracks on the DR-70D are captured to SD card, SDHC or SDXC media – up to 128GB cards are supported. The recorder has tripod mounts on the top and bottom of the unit, allowing it to be mounted on a camera, a follow-focus cage, or used standalone. Other production friendly features include a slate tone, low-noise buttons, a powerful headphone output, and standard AA battery power.
Uniquely designed for the needs of filmmakers, television producers, advertisers, and documentarians, the DR-70D packs multitrack recording into a package compact enough to use with any camera.

The table below shows the maximum recording time on SD/SDHC cards of different capacities for different file formats for recording. File format(recording setting) SD/SDHC card capacity(hours:mintes) 1GB 2GB 4GB 8GB WAV/BWF 16bit(STEREO) 44.1kHz 1:41 3:22 6:44 13:28 48kHz 1:33 3:06 6:12 12:24 96kHz 0:46 1:33 3:06 6:12 WAV/BWF 24bit(STEREO) 44.1kHz 1:07 2:15 4:30 9:00 48kHz 1:02 2:04 4:08 8:16 96kHz 0:31 1:02 2:04 4:08
The recording times shown above are estimates. They might differ depending on the SD/SDHC card in use. The recording times shown above are not continuous recording times, but rather they are the total possible recording times for the SD/SDHC card. If recorded in mono in WAV files, the maximum recording time will be double the figures above. For dual and 4-channel recording in WAV/BWF format, the recording times are about half those shown above.
Comments about Tascam DR-70D Linear PCM Recorder for DSLR:
In the sub $500 price range, there really isn't much around with the same feature set as the DR-70. The zoom models are a pain to work with when location recording, but fine for most other uses. Obviously the build and sound quality is nowhere near the brilliant Sound Devices range, but it shouldn't be, since it's (at least) a quarter of the price!
The good: 4 XLR inputs, easy to use pots, ability to name files, price, power via USB
The bad: noisy headphone output, quite noisy at the MID -> HIGH+ gain settings, having to manually set gain settings (LOW, MID etc)
Pretty impressed with the unit after a week on location at near zero degree temps! The build quality is decent, although I have noticed a bit of dust creeping in behind the LCD screen cover. There were a few moments where the unit froze on me, requiring power disconnection, but otherwise it's been good. Easy to use, audio quality is pretty good, but like I said, if you need an entry level location recorder without forking out too much, this is your best bet at the moment.
TIP: Get yourself a lithium power bank! A 9000mAh unit lasted about 3 days (with phantom on).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Comments about Tascam DR-70D Linear PCM Recorder for DSLR:
I'm using this for voiceovers, mostly driving a 416. The dual recording feature is very helpful and for the price I don't think you can beat it for this sort of job. Of course it isn't the best for video field work, but you'll pay a lot more for quality gear for that - it's designed for DSLR work, not ENG. Does tend to chew the batteries, but not drastically so. My only negative comment is that I found the menus a bit of a learning curve (and I'm familiar with this stuff), so I've set it up the way I want and no more fiddling. No idea about its reliability yet. But so far it's been a nice little piece of equipment. No regrets.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
