As well as featuring probably the best low-noise microphone in its class for superior sound reproduction, it also has a high-speed USB connection for organising and archiving recordings on a PC or Mac, or sharing them via e-mail - and all this with great ease. Moreover the new calendar search allows quick and simple file searching. And the benefits don’t stop here either. The VN-712PC includes the low-cut filter for noise reduction while recording, the Scene Select and Automatic Recording (VCVA) features and 99 Index Marks - all designed for maximum user-friendliness.
