Via Dave: New HHB FlashMic Is World's First Digital Recording Microphone

That thing sure looks interesting, but we will have to see the price tag on it. On the other side, most good mics need phantom power and then you need something like a flashman, so this might be an alternativ.

Perfect for all voice recording applications, in particular broadcast and press interviewing, the FlashMic combines a high quality Sennheiser omni-directional condenser capsule with 1GB of flash recording memory to create a convenient, durable and portable recording device that's extremely easy to operate.

With no fiddly cables and connectors to worry about, journalists can be recording instantly with just a single button-push. Either .Wav linear or MPEG 2 encoded audio files can then be transferred quickly and easily via USB to Macintosh or PC computers and laptops for editing and onward transmission. A Date/Time stamp is stored along with the file, with the internal real time clock-set/synchronized automatically by the host computer.

The FlashMic is powered for more than six hours by a pair of standard AA batteries (either primary or rechargeable cells can be fitted), with the remaining battery power displayed along with time, level and status information in a backlit LCD on the microphone body. In addition, a visual low battery warning alerts the user to the imminent need to change batteries.
I know many radio guys from our community radio who will not like such 'play toys', but for serious podcasters this might be exactly what one needs on the road.

Now what was the price again? :)

  1. US$1,200 is the price for this mic. Too bad it's so expensive.

  2. Autsch. That is a bit much for a toy.
