It records 24-bit/48kHz WAV audio files to MicroSDHC cards, supporting capacities up to 32GB. The VP83F also features one-button recording and an intuitive operating menu, making it easy to use. Additionally, an integrated Rycote Lyre shock mounting system provides isolation from vibration and mechanical noise.
The VP83F LensHopper features a 60dB gain range, adjustable in 1dB increments, as well as a low-cut filter for adapting to different recording environments. Its lightweight, yet durable, metal construction provides dependability and long-life. The VP83F easily mounts to a standard-size camera shoe or a 1/4" threaded stand. The detachable 3.5mm cable connects to your camera's audio input, while the stereo headphone output allows you to monitor incoming audio.
