As mentioned a couple of months ago in an August 21 article posted in Trew Audio Flow (see the article here), we discovered a problem having to do with noise being induced into the Canon 5D-MkII camera when – and only when – attached to the DR-60D. The amount of testing that could be done was limited by Tascam not being able to deliver more DR-60Ds at the time (they were between production runs). However, other customers responded to the report, saying they had the same problem with their DR-60D and 5D-MkII setup. So it may well be a consistent problem with earlier DR-60D recorders.
TASCAM DR-60D may eventually turn out to be a good product for double system DLSR production, but there are some concerns.
A Trew Audio customer brought his Tascam DR-60D to our Los Angeles store hoping we could figure out why his recordings had a serious noise issues. He also brought in the two Canon 5D Mark II cameras he was using with the DR-60D.

Manufacturers await my reviews of their products with a bit of anxiety because they know I’m going to filter out the sales talk and tell it like it is for the benefit of the end-users. That’s probably why I’ve been asked so many times what I think about the new Zaxcom Nomad mixer/recorder.
