      I got mine from Amazon for $181 U.S. It comes with a small desk stand and
      mic stand adaptor and can use a camera tripod. It also uses SD cards, which
      are cheap and readily available and is powered by 2 AA batteries or an
      included power adaptor. It also comes with a windscreen so you can record
      outside without wind noise. The size? Small. It easily fits in your hand.
