Olympus’ LS-20M brings dual mics and 1080p recording to your pocket
Olympus, the camera company, is ready to dive into the pocket camcorders market, with the announcement of the LS-20M, a handheld whose relatively high-end audio specs should help it go toe-to-toe with Zoom.
In addition to 1080p video, the LS-20M records 24 bit / 96 mHz Linear PCM audio using a pair of condenser mics. It has a small 2-inch screen and no optical zoom, but at least Olympus borrowed four of the visual effects that make its PEN cameras so fun to use. Well, can’t complain much, since the thing is only $300. The LS-20M will be arriving in June.
