Pointer - Olympus DS-50 Recorder
March 03, 2007
The new Olympus DS-50 ($249) looks like a good potential audio recording tool both for quick podcast segment recordings and for doing mobile interviews.
It comes with a clip-on stereo microphone and 1-GB of storage, but only seems to only store files in Windows Media Audio (WMA) or MP3 formats which isn't optimal from an post-production standpoint. Another potential draw back is no stated support for Apple Mac OS X.
It also seems to have some features for Windows users to listen to media including podcasts and Audible content.
