Tascam DR 70D with K-Tek Stingray Bag, Rycote 15cm AV Softie Kit & Sennheiser MKE 600 Bundle
The DR-70D from TASCAM is the ultimate audio recording solution for filmmakers. Four balanced XLR mic inputs meet the requirements of production sound, from professional users to indie DSLR shooters. The compact format can be mounted either above or below a camera, and a pair of built-in microphones can capture sound on-set. The interface is designed for quick adjustment, with additional features to keep recording levels under control.
Tracks on the DR-70D are captured to SD card, SDHC or SDXC media – up to 128GB cards are supported. The recorder has tripod mounts on the top and bottom of the unit, allowing it to be mounted on a camera, a follow-focus cage, or used standalone. Other production friendly features include a slate tone, low-noise buttons, a powerful headphone output, and standard AA battery power.
Dual Recording mode can be used to create a backup file that is simultaneously recorded at a different level to prevent clipping when levels exceed the maximum input. The second track is recorded up to 12dB lower as a safety track to prevent distortion – if your input signal overloads, you have a backup that isn't distorted.
Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone
The MKE 600 is the ideal video camera/camcorder microphone able to handle even demanding filmic challenges. Due to its high directivity, the MKE 600 picks up sounds coming from the direction in which the camera is pointing and effectively attenuates noise coming from the sides and rear. The switchable “Low Cut” filter additionally minimizes wind noise.
Because some video cameras/camcorders do not provide phantom power, the MKE 600 can also be battery powered. A battery on/off switch prevents the battery from discharging prematurely; “Low Batt” is displayed.

Rycote AV Softie Windshield Kit
The AV Softie Windshield Kit from Rycote is specifically designed to fit the Sennheiser MKE 600 shotgun microphone. The kit includes a 14cm Softie windshield, an InVision 7HG MKIII microphone suspension, a Soft-Grip extension handle, a 3/8" shoe adapter and a maintenance brush for cleaning.
The InVision 7HG MKIII mic suspension is a vibration-resistant shockmount with a non-slip mic clamp and an "easy-turn" knob for making angle adjustments. It also features a clamp for securing your mic cable to reduce cable-noise.
For holding your microphone instead of mounting it to a stand, boom or camera, the Soft-Grip extension handle can be used. It is equipped with a 3/8-inch male screw thread for mounting into the suspension, plus the handle itself can be mounted to a boom via the 3/8-inch thread located in its base. The kit also includes a shoe adapter for attaching your mic to the hot shoe on your camera. It has a 1/4" female thread and a 3/8" male thread.
