one last (I hope) footnote about the DR-10X: One of the biggest complaints in the reviews I read on line was that the metering turned itself off when the unit started recording. But that is no longer true with the latest firmware. You still can't access the menu while recording, and therefore can't adjust the input gain--but now you can at least see what levels you're getting--and that could be very useful, especially if you're driving the recorder from an outboard preamp that has variable gain.

By the way, the meters allow a small amount of headroom. The last little indicator line lights up at ~2 dB below full scale.

--best regards

I have the 635A, the little interview mic.  Used to see them used on TV field recordings all the time.  Now reporters use their cell phones.

Test it out. The cellphone might be less noisy, just due to modern circuit design!?

The DR-10x is actually a popular option for video shooters who don't trust wireless and/or don't want to spend the $ on wireless.  BH puts a white version on sale every so often for $129 if I remember right.

That is the Tascam DR10L, which is a little different.
It is a bodypack recorder which comes with a lav.
