Sony has announced a new handheld flash recorder in the PCM-D50, a 4GB jobbie that also includes a Sony memory stick slot for extra storage, internal stereo condenser mics, and a list price of $599. It has a pretty powerful preamp for unpowered external mics -- which it'll also recognize automatically as soon as you plug them in -- usable internal mics, and a chunky metallic feel. Sounds like just what the doctor ordered, but in case you're not convinced, check out some sample recordings at Brad Linder's blog.
