0

Zoom has announced that it is now shipping its F1 Field Recorder with a choice of shotgun or lavalier microphones, expanding its product line of quality audio recording solutions for video recording devices and DSLR cameras.

Zoom F1-SP

The F1 is the latest field recorder to join the Zoom lineup and is available in two distinct models: the F1-SP Field Recorder + Shotgun Mic, and the F1-LP Field Recorder + Lavalier Mic system.

Offering a compact, lightweight design with a rugged aluminum body, the F1 Field Recorder allows filmmakers and videographers to get the most out of their audio recordings without having to carry bulky equipment. It features a newly designed LCD display that ensures readability even in direct sunlight. Users can monitor levels, battery life, rumble filter lo-cut settings and more, while the one-touch controls that surround the display make recording levels, limiter settings and volume output easily accessible.

The shotgun configuration features the SGH-6 shock-mounted shotgun mic, which provides an ultimate solution for on-the-move filmmakers, while the LMF-1 lavalier makes sure users capture all the audio nuances of interviews, weddings and other situations where up-close audio is needed. Both microphones, when paired with the F1, capture pristine audio up to 24-bit/96k directly to a microSD card.

In addition, the F1 Field Recorder utilizes Zoom’s proprietary 10-pin connector for compatibility with all of Zoom’s interchangeable mic capsules, to provide recording options for virtually any recording environment.
