The DR-10SG from Tascam is a super-cardioid shotgun microphone and a professional-quality digital recorder in a single unit. It can be used as an on-camera attachment to record and capture audio for several consumer devices such as video cameras, DSLRs, and more.

The shotgun microphone features a shock-resistant mounting foot that attaches to your camera. The built-in professional-quality digital recorder has four selectable AEQ modes, audio pass-through to the camera, and an onboard audio slate for synchronisation during post-production.

Furthermore, the unit features Tascam's Dual Recording mode, which automatically records a second "safety take" at a lower level. The DR-10SG can operate for 8.5 hours continuously on a single alkaline AAA battery and is compact and lightweight. The DR-10SG is designed to deliver professional-grade audio quality while addressing the inherent issues of on-camera audio.

Key Features

High-Performance Shotgun Microphone
The super-cardioid pickup pattern picks up sound in the direction it is pointing, rejecting ambient noise, and reverberation. The design of this microphone is built to capture your subject's voice from your camera, without noise from traffic, surf, echo, and other distractions

Camera Shoe Attachment with Shockmount The DR-10SG's built-in shoe-mount adapter attaches it directly to the camera while staying out of your way

Four AEQ Presets
The DR-10SG's built-in equaliser tailors the recording to sound best in your environment. It includes the following four presets:

  • Natural: Flat response for a natural-sounding recording
  • Standard: Standard AEQ for a video camera shotgun mic, adding clarity
  • Interview: AEQ optimised for voice recordings in interviews, conversations, and similar scenes
  • Field: Ideal AEQ for recording sound effects and other background sounds

High-Quality Audio That's Simple to Use
The DR-10SG provides digital recording with the convenience of a camera accessory. Detailed electrical design includes rejection of power supply and camera noise in a compact design

Shockmount Mechanism and Noise-Isolation Arm
A floating shock mount mechanism sits between the recorder and the shoe mount, reducing vibration and other noise transmitted from the camera body. Also included is a noise-isolation arm that moves the recorder away from the camera, lens, and other sources of noise. This is especially useful to reduce noise generated by autofocus motors

Slate Tone Simplifies Synchronisation with Video Files
A built-in generator produces slate tones providing convenient reference points for lining up video and audio files after recording. Slate tones are automatically produced when recording starts and stops. The volume of slate tones can be set to Off, Low, or High. By connecting the DR-10SG back to the camera with the included cable, the camera's video file also gets the slate tones. If you need perfect synchronisation, zoom into your editing software and line up the Sinae waves

Records Two Files Simultaneously
The DR-10SG has several features to prevent distorted audio, but the most secure is Dual Recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level, as a safety track in case of distortion
