ZOOM has recently introduced its smallest, most versatile recorder ever. The H1 Handy Recorder can be used to record everything from field rehearsals to seminars to interviews.
ZOOM recorders stand out above most other devices because the X/Y pattern in which its microphones are configured allow it to capture stereo recordings with natural depth and accurate imaging. Its directional microphones also ignore unwanted noise behind them.
ZOOM also reports that the new display screen is more user-friendly than previous versions. With levels from 1 to 100 as well as an AUTO LEVEL function, the controls have been simplified to allow the user to easily operate the device to capture superb, quality audio, ranging from “subtle nature sounds to a thunderous rock band.”
The H1 includes a 2GB microSD card and has a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port to allow uploading of files onto a computer. Also provided with purchase of the H1 Recorder is one AA battery, which allows 10 hours of operation.
An optional accessory package includes an AC adapter, windscreen, a USB cable, a soft case, a microphone stand clip adapter and an adjustable desktop tripod. For more information, visit www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/h1.
