Just noticed, upon closer look the 70 has combined camera/line out vs 60 with individual
70 also lacks camera/line out volume(level) adjust, only headphone. That's a big lose for me as I am running to a camcorder at times

Not thrilled with channel 4 on the other side and the tilt screen seems like it may be a PITA in a gear bag.

The problem with the gear bag might be finding the little thing in there.

It's just possible that level to camera is in software rather than a knob.

Tempting.  I'm curious to see what the reviews are of this once it gets out in to the wild.   Tascam ALMOST got it right.   They should've left the 1/8" input as Ch. 3 and 4 instead of bumping it to Ch. 1 and 2.   This will mean cables spread apart when running a TinyBox with actives and a soundboard feed via XLR on 3 and 4.   If things are what they should be, I might have to sell off my 2D and get one of these for 4-channel use because having independent levels is so much easier.

The mark function on the 60D was operated by pressing the rotary selector, with quite a mechanical "click", which was a pity as you normally use the mark function while the recording is running (with risk of getting that click on the recording).  There's no "mark" lettering in the photos but I bet that the method on this model will be the same, unfortunately.

They may have put one of the XLRs on the opposite side from the other XLRs as a means of balancing out the weight of XLR cables when the unit is hung around someone's neck especially if they are only using two channels.

The whole unit seems aimed at the DSLR camera market.

To bad they didn't include a digi in and out.

Bingo.  That was my primary wishlist item for the -60D.  The two additional XLR inputs are very nice, but I would gladly sacrifice the onboard mics for S/PDIF.

I can't seem to find in the online info any indication of the physical dimensions or weight of the D70.  Does anyone know?

Boy, if this can perform the Dual function on 4 mic inputs simultaneously (4 stereo pairs to the card) this thing will be a win for me.  I really enjoy that function so I can set levels and stand in front of the mics talking enjoy the music with worrying about clipping.

The DR-60D can only record the Dual function on up to two channels, not two pairs.

yeah it's not going to do dual recording in two pairs, otherwise it would be an 8 ch recorder

Tascam HD-P2 has a similar tilt.  That feature was never a big deal for us P2 owners.  I wouldn't rule it out for that.

As does the Edirol/Roland R-44, and I've had no problems whatsoever viewing its screen in my gearbag.  YMMV.
