Tascam DR-100 Mk III Linear PCM Recorder Released

Dr-100 mk 3

The Tascam DR-100 MK III is the latest release by one of the industry leaders in field audio recording. It comes as a new update to their flagship DR-100 recording product line, and includes a couple of very nice upgrades that allow for recording of better and longer uninterrupted audio.

Long a favorite of DSLR shooters, Tascam recorders are widely known for their portability and being audio capture workhorses out on location. Look into any one-man-band kitbag out there and you’re very likely to find a Tascam recorder of some sort.

As opposed to the MK II, the Tascam DR-100 MK III allows for recording onto SDXC (not SDHC!) cards up to 128GB. Given the relative size of audio versus video files, you’ll likely be recording all week on a single card if you choose, although I would recommend offloading after each shoot day. You also see a bump up in file quality with the new 24-Bit/192 kHz option, where it’s predecessor only allowed for 24-Bit/96kHz recording.

A standout feature for me is the dual-battery design featuring a built-in lithium-ion rechargeable, as well as the normal capability to use AA batteries. This is perfect for long interviews or concerts: situations where you will want to swap batteries without halting recording.

The Tascam DR-100 MK III is also built around an aluminium frame, giving it some added drop protection in the field.

MAIN PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS: 

  • 2 x XLR/TRS Combo Inputs
  • A second dual-record mode captures WAV and MP3 files simultaneously
