"Great Bang For the Buck!"

I want to start off by letting you know that I did not purchase this mic with the intent to use it as a field recorder. I purchased it to capture better audio (vocal recording) for my film projects (that was the main goal).

After messing around with a bit I began to notice just how versatile the recorder actually was. I began carrying it with me everywhere : Store, park, bathroom (yea I know TMI) and even the recording studio.

It's actually a really nice field recorder especially for the price! I've only used 1-2 other field recorders besides this H1 Zoom and one of those just happen to be the H4 Zoom recorder.

In my opinion they don't sound very different. If you were to record 2 quality sound bites in the same environment and play them back to someone they'd have a hard time telling them apart.

What I don't like about this recorder is it's build... It's mostly plastic! But again, it's only $80.. I just wish it had a slightly better build but other than that I have no complaints.

I was able to get 10 hours of recording from a single AA battery!

I've used this little guy to record all sorts of different sounds: Car starting, milk pouring into a glass and even live gun shot sounds (with just the on board mic)

You can hook up other mics to this recording, but you'll need a 1/8 connection to do so.

I would recommend this field recorder to anyone who is looking to improve there audio for film recording (again vocals) as well as those who are looking or thinking about messing dipping into field recording on a budget.

If you plan on recording anything outside I would strongly suggest you use a dead kitten or another type of raggy textured wind diffuser (to kill background noise and wind sounds)
