GadgetGreg on BT Edmonton 15JUN09 8:40AM – Audio Gadgets

BT June 15th, 2009  8:40AM

While Video becomes popular, Audio is still alive and well. One of the reasons is the availability MP3, podcasts and the ease editing.

Audio Recorders are also getting more sophisticated, powerful and with incredible capabilities that before would require a studio and a computer.

I like to use car analogies for Recorders:

H4N by ZOOM ($449) – The Lamborghini
Futuristic Funky design; Featured on the cover of Popular Science May 2009 as one of the most desirable gadgets today with recording with the capability of DVD quality sound. Used by artists and musicians.

featured in Greg’s gift ideas for Father’s Day

H2 by ZOOM ($239) – The Hummer
Rock solid recording with 4 built-in microphones that can record 360 degrees.

You may not find Zoom at all electronics shops – but you can find them at Axe Music or on-line at AxeMusic.com

Olympus LS-10 ($449)– The Porsche
Sleek Aluminum styled body, highly sensitive microphones; can record in multiple recording formats. Large display.

Olympus V5200- The Toyota Corolla
Good reliable sound recording. Not as full featured and power as the others but great for recording class lectures &, podcasts. Olympus has over 30 models

These next 2 items facilitate recording for those with iPods – more like trailers than cars

Belkin Go Studio – ($149)
Compact Portable Studio that uses the iPod as the recording device with the flexibility of being able to monitor and adjust levels on the fly. You can use the built in mics or plug in your own.  Read Review

Belkin TuneTalk Stereo ($69)
Gadget that snaps to the bottom of eslected iPod that turns your iPod into a recorder.  Read review at G4 Tech TV Canada

These would make great Father’s Day Gifts

We will also be giving away a brand-new Flip Mino pocket video camera that we couldn’t show on the last gadgetgreg visit to BT.

Today on Breakfast TV Ryan, Wendy & I  looked at some cool gadgets, may of which are suitable for Mother’s Day which is just around the corner.

First we looked at the Centrios Talking Pedometer ($24.95), we also looked at the Home Guardian Baby Monitor ($249.99) – on sale right now until May 13th – $100 off, featuring video and lullabys. Both of these are available exclusively at The Source by Circuit City.

We also talked about the new trend toward handy dandy pocket-sized, easy to use  dedicated pocket video cameras.

We saw the Creative Vado and VadoHD, The Pure Digital Flip and the Kodak Zx1.

We also had a peek at the Brother MFC-9990

Another great opportunity to show gadgets to CityTV Breakfast Television Viewing Audience. What a blast it was!.  Incredible interview by Wendy Sandwith – it was certainly an honour to meet her for the first time – she’s pretty enthusiastic about gadgets and it made for a great segment!  Lots of Fun!  Incredible crew!

Four minutes is not enough time to talk in detail about all the gadgets, so in case you want to know more – here it is.

We looked at the QuikPod and the QuikPod DSLR monopod like  gadgets to allow you to take photos of yourself and more. We also looked at the Mophie Juice Pack and the Tekkeon MP1200 Cases for iPod/iPhone that double as a spare battery (Reviewed at G4 Tech TV Canada)  We also looked at the Ecosol PowerStick - Made in Canada ( review at Canoe Technology). Spare power in a tiny stick to power or recharge various handheld devices. The Timex Ironman iPod Edition allows you to attach a dongle or thingamabob – as Wendy calls it, to your iPod and control it from the Timex Watch. To demonstrate these gadgets, we used the Apple iPod Touch & iPod Video.
