January 24, 2018 — Zoom North America unveiled the F1 Field Recorder with shotgun and lavalier microphone attachments, continuing to deliver quality audio recording capabilities to video recording devices.
The F1 Field Recorder offers a compact, lightweight design that allows filmmakers and videographers to get the most out of their audio recording without the use of bulky equipment. It also features a freshly designed monochromatic display that ensures readability, even in direct sunlight. The user can monitor levels, battery life, lo-cut settings and more, while one-touch controls surrounding the display make record levels, limiter settings, and volume output easily accessible.
Zoom’s F1 is the latest field recorder to join their lineup, and the company is proud to announce two bundles: the F1-SP Field Recorder + Shotgun Mic system, and the F1-LP Field Recorder + Lavalier Mic system. The Shotgun Mic provides an ultimate solution for run-and-gun filmmakers, while the Lavalier makes sure to capture all the audio nuance of interviews, weddings, and more. Both microphones, when combined with the F1, capture pristine audio up to 24-bit/96k directly to a microSD card.
The F1 Field Recorder utilizes Zoom’s proprietary 10-pin connector to make the F1 compatible with all of Zoom’s interchangeable mic capsules and provides recording options in virtually any environment.
F1-LP Field Recorder + Lavalier Mic: $199.99
F1-SP Field Recorder + Shotgun Mic: $249.99
