Zoom Debuts F1 Field Recorder, Mic Systems

Zoom has developed two versions of its new F1 Field Recorder.

Farmingdale, NY (April 3, 2018)—Zoom North America has unveiled its F1 Field Recorder with a choice of shotgun or lavalier microphones.

The F1 is available in two versions—the F1-SP Field Recorder + Shotgun Mic, and the F1-LP Field Recorder + Lavalier Mic system—and offers a newly designed, 1.25-inch monochrome LCD display that allows users to monitor levels, battery life, rumble filter lo-cut settings and more. Those are accessed via an onscreen intuitive menu.

The recorder sports a Pre-Record function; a tone generator for calibrating audio levels between the F1 and a DSLR or video camera without the need for an attenuator cable; and a Sound Marker function for syncing of audio and video.

The shotgun configuration features the SGH-6 shock-mounted shotgun mic, while the LMF-1 lavalier is part of the F1-LP system. Both microphones, when paired with the F1, capture audio up to 24-bit/96k directly to a microSD card up to 32GB.

The recorder uses a proprietary 10-pin connector for compatibility with all of Zoom’s interchangeable mic capsules, and also sports stereo, 1/8” mic/line in and Phone/line output jacks. Additionally, it has a Micro USB port so that the unit can interface with a computer or iOS device.

The Zoom F1-SP Field Recorder System with SGH-6 shotgun mic is currently available at authorized Zoom resellers at $249.99 MAP. The Zoom F1-LP Field Recorder System with LMF-1 lavalier mic is currently available at $199.99 MAP.
