I river's all the way. I've been using them for over a year now and I've never looked back. You can't beat the price either. Throw a squid mic on it above the shirt or under the shirt on a windy day and you're sitting pretty.

Looks like the DS30 has been discontinued ... :(

Would the WS-400S provide the same thing or should I get something else...

I also use the Olympus DS30. It looks like B&H has it's replacement (DM-420) for about $118. I think Amazon does too.

I have an Olympus LS-10 at work that I use to record board meetings and such plugged into the output of a Sure 8 port mixer...then post the audio to our web site.
Very easy to use, and great audio. Even just setting the recorder on the table during a meeting it records incredible audio, nice and deep tones, and thats on the lower setting.
I also took the recorder to a club and recorded a friends band, the recorder was about 100' from the stage and the audio actually came out pretty good!

I never thought about using it for recording weddings and such.
Whats the differance in the LS series, DS series, and WS series from a wedding recording standpoint? Big differance in prices! Also, I just purchased a Panasonic HMC150 camera, will the audio match up the same as with a DV cam?
Thanks.

I'll add in my question here as well ...
Which current model would you recommend from BH Photo for use at receptions.
I am using a mac. would prefer if I didn't have to adjust audio drift if possible but have done it before so I am not too concerned. Are there any that record to 48 rather than 44 so they would sync up?
Thanks in advance!
also any links to lapel mics (or whatever you are connecting to these things) and the fuzzy covers that you know work well in windy situations would also be appreciated.

Just got word that the 2 Olympus 6200-PC recorders are in as well as the lav mics I ordered with them.
I will use them on my next wedding and let everyone know my thoughts.
I would like to thank Travis for helping me think outside the box on this one b/c I had always thought we needed to have wireless mics direct to the camera etc.... What a brilliant idea!
Saved me over 1500.00 from the mics I had been looking at.
