TASCAM has introduced the DR-10L, an ultra-compact recorder with lavalier microphone.

Geared towards videographers, the DR-10L delivers TASCAM’s legendary audio quality in a tiny, easily concealed package that eliminates the uncertainties of wireless microphone systems.


Featuring a professional-quality lavalier microphone and ultra-compact body pack, the DR-10L captures crystal-clear 48kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV files to tiny microSD or microSDHC cards, powering through up to ten hours of recording on a single AAA battery. Clip it to your talent, press record, and know with confidence you’ll capture every sound, even if they stray off camera or out of wireless range.

Like its siblings, the DR-10X plug-on ENG recorder and the DR-10SG shotgun mic recorder, the DR-10L is packed with professional features, including a built-in limiter to prevent distortion, low-cut filter to reduce wind and rumble noise, and a bright OLED display that’s easily readable even in direct sunlight. And TASCAM’s acclaimed Dual Recording mode captures a lower level safety track to safeguard against unexpected source level spikes.

For wedding and event videographers, the DR-10L is portable and economical enough to put systems on the bride, groom, priest, and anyone else you need good audio from. For interviews and documentaries, it’s small enough to also use in tandem with a traditional RF system, giving you the confidence of a high-quality backup recording.

The DR-10L is expected to ship in late October. It will be available for pre-order soon through TASCAM professional dealers, with a street price of $199.99 USD.
