Just when I thought the Olympus Linear PCM recorders couldn’t get any better, the innovative engineers at Olympus introduce the LS-20M, the first Linear PCM recorder with Full 1080p HD video recording capability. The LS-20M is sure to change the lives of musicians and music enthusiast around the globe.
Let’s start with the audio: The Olympus LS-20M records at 24 bit 96 kHz; for those of us who did not chose digital recording as their primary elective, this simply means the record quality is considered “studio grade” better than that found on CDs. The crystal clear sound is possible because of the two noise-cancelling directional microphones, wrapped in chrome coating. Users can record in PCM (WAV) format or switch to MP3 for easy file sharing.
If capturing high-quality audio isn’t enough, you’re in luck. The LS-20M also captures Full 1080p HD Video at 30 fps (frames per second). The dual LCD display will allow you to view your high definition video while monitoring your audio levels to ensure that you capture the perfect combination of sight and sound. The auto focus lens with an electrical stabilizer will keep your videos looking smooth. Did I mention it also has 4x digital zoom and can be used as a web camera? The magic movie special effects will add a creative flair to your videos.
What are you waiting for? Order your LS-20M today… your eyes and ears will thank you.
