Finally got the A10 and the LOM Mikro Uši!
The internal microphones are OK (I honestly expected much worse), but using the A10 together with the Mikro Ušis is a very good combo! I really like the compactness and the long battery life of the A10.
I will do some more tests but as of now I'm not regretting my purchase.

Has anyone purchased a dead rat for the A10? I'm going to use the A10 as a camera mounted mic for travel video and could use something a little more substantial than the included windscreen.

I actually purchased a Rycote H1N Mini Windjammer which should fit the A10 quite well. Haven't gotten it yet, so I can't say anything about it's effectiveness. Rycote windshields seem to be very high quality though...

Also I've never heard the term "dead rat" only "dead cat/kitten" lol. I guess "dead rat" sounds less cruel?

Sold my M-10 a couple months ago with every intention of replacting it with an A-10, but hate paying full price. I know there are ebay vendors with reduced pricing, but hard to get a line on which are truly legit. Any deals to be had before I pay full retail?

i would pay full price thru a legit sony dealer and use a cc that eels you out 1-2 years of extra warranty (visa signature and citibank’s premium cards come to mind, some amex as well)

anybody below msrp on ebay, etc., you risk warranty issues

the unit is worth 220 imo

there was a camera shop i bought my zoom from who got me a slightly better price, i can ask if sony is in his stable

I just noticed something about the A10 which I don't like very much...


The built-in USB connector only runs at USB2 speed, not USB3.
For fastest file transfers, it is thus necessary to record to the microSD card, and physically remove the card to insert directly into a USB3 (or better) speed card reader.

Hi

This is a good and important point.  I record wildlife sounds overnight.  I usually record 12-14 hours of material.  It took me 1 hour 20 minutes to transfer to my PC using the built-in (slow) USB connection.  Took just 20 minutes if I extract the SD card and use a card reader.  But it's not much of an issue.  Removing and replacing the SD card is very simple and straightforward.  I just do it carefully, that's all.

Rgds,

Is there any digital recorder that offers USB3?

Do you mean a small form factor recorder? I think the larger Sound Devices MP series are probably USB3.

Edit: Nope. Even the SD recorders are USB 2.0

Does anyone remember dubbing a cassette or two in real time?

On a side note: would the good folks here rather go for a A10 or a second-hand M10?

I strongly prefer the M-10....a real workhorse with low noise.My first M-10 from 2010 still working perfectly after 10 years of use/abuse.

I had an A-10 and it's IMO like a cheap toy.Mine even had clicking noise recorded in all modes. Just junk IMO.
