Tascam DR-40 vs. Zoom H4N
As usual, Deejay over at DSLR Film Noob gives us another thorough comparison of two popular products for the low-budget filmmaker. I was especially interested in his opinion of the Tascam DR-40, which is the lowest priced recorder ($150) that has XLR inputs. This means you can use all kinds of pro gear that will give you much better sound than the super-cheap unbalanced stuff I usually use. He says it's basic, but works well, which is really all I wanted to hear.
