Tascam HD-P2 CF Audio Recorder: Indie Film Dream

Finally, a Compact Flash recorder with serious pro cred: Tascam's upcoming HD-P2 records up to a whopping "high-definition" 192 kHz / 24-bit Broadcast WAVE and connects to your computer via FireWire. It looks and feels like Tascam's portable DAT recorders, but thanks to CF there's no transport noise. It's also the first audio recorder anywhere near the price ($999) to synchronize to timecode, and it runs on AA batteries. Translation: you're going to have to claw your way through a ravenous pack of indie filmmakers to buy one. -P. Kirn
