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
