    This remote works perfectly. I attach it with velcro to the back of the shoulder brace of my Cavision rails system, and that piece folds up when I'm on a tripod so I can see it easily.

    The only negative thing about the Zoom H4N is that there are no knobs for adjusting gain. You have to first press either the Channel 1 or Channel 2 button, then adjust gain up or down as needed. If you go back to adjust again, it asks you again which channel. With the remote, once you press a channel, it stays on that one until you change it. So you can press Channel 1, adjust gain up, then adjust it down later without pressing the channel button again. Sounds like a small thing but when shooting sync it can be a pain.

    All controls of the remote work as they should. I wish there was a better attachment method...maybe a hook to hang it from the tripod or something like that. They give you an extension cable, so you can run it down the boom as well if you have a soundman who'd got the recorder mounted on his fishpole.

    It is very useful to have a remote for your field recorder.

    You don't have to operate your buttons directly on your recorder but using the remote. And when the recorder is on a boom pole or in a difficult position to access it, having a remote is mandatory.

    Also it is very good for podcasts and audio journal. The pause recording functionality of the zoom H4n combining with the ability to control it by remote it was a very solid selling point for me to buy zoom H4n and the Rc4 remote.

    My cons:

    The remote by itself is well build but the wire is very thin and weak. The point of failure is where the wire is inserted into the remote.

    In my opinion the remote should have a jack conector and in the case of breaking the wire you can easily replace it.

            My wife uses her H4n to record and play back music her dulcimer group plays. She sits the unit on a tripod out in front of the group and can start and stop the record and play back functions without having to get up and leave her seat. This cord on this remote would not have been long enough by itself, but the extension cord it came with made it the perfect length for her need.

              I use the H4N to record my symphony orchestra during rehearsals. I sit about 8 feet away from where I set the recorder on a tripod. With the remote and cable extension, I can unobtrusively control record/pause/stop without leaving my spot.

              Remote does just what it is supposed to do, and makes my work very easy!

                We mainly use the H4n on a small boom when shooting double system interviews with the Canon 7D. The remote allows easy stop and start from at or near the camera position. It clearly indicates when you are recording or stopped. Would be nice to have a record level indocator.

                              It works great, however the buttons are fairly flat and it's hard to tell when some of been depressed as the button clicks are very subtle. I can see myself mashing the buttons just to be sure. I won't be able to see feedback from the display as the H4n will be in a bag and the remote easily accessible in an outside pocket or tucked in a wrist band.

                                    I was looking for a more convenient way to tap record for a take without having to fumble around on the Zoom H4n unit itself. This fills the bill but there seems to be a bit of delay between the time the button is pressed and recording actually begins. It would have been nice to see a display of the time running on the remote instead of just a little LED which indicates recording is taking place.

                                        The RC4 remote is great for a number of special conditions. Indie cinematographers have a lot to pay attention to at once, and the remote allows you more freedom in production. Green and red indicator lights on the remote tell you the H4N status so you can closely watch your talent, viewfinder, or other important things during a shoot.

                                            As a novice about to embark on an amateur video project for his daughter, I don't want to fumble with the Zoom H4N's controls at an inopportune time. This remote makes the job much easier. My only complaint: I had to fiddle with the connection to get it to work. At first, I thought it was defective but after plugging and unplugging it in and looking in the manual, it worked after 5 minutes of effort. We haven't used it on the actual shoot yet, but successful field tests bode well.

                                              Worth the price.

                                                The remote control is essential if you plan to position the Zoom H4n where it would be hard to operate it.Once you have set your basic controls with the help of the unit's readout (quality and record levels), you can operate basic functions from the remote.It comes with a 6 foot cord and small LEDs for the REC and INPUT functions, confirming which inputs are in use and that you are indeed recording. The addition of a 10 foot extension is welcomed.In the minus side: the cables feel a bit thin and possibly prone to break if stressed.At $ it is a good deal, but if they put their minds to it, I can easily see a wireless version with an small LED screen to make it a truly versatile remote.

                                                It will probably hold up fine, but at first seems to be of fragile build. It could us heavier wiring with some reinforcement of wire to body join. It is, however, a nice compact design, and so far, I am very happy with it.

                                                  With the RC4 remote now I can stop and start audio recordings on my Zoom H4N without having to press the buttons on the recorder. The LED on the remote even indicates that it is recording. This is very helpful since the H4N is normally mounted on top of my camera and viewing it's screen is often difficult. Now, I simply hit record on the RC4 the same time that I hit record on my camera and with the LED's in plain sight, I never miss getting my audio clips.

                                                    The H4n Remote is an excellent accessory if you are trying to produce CD quality results. It virtually eliminates key click noises associated with and resulting from using the on-board mics. The built-in H4n mics are extremely sensitive (proportionately so as higher mic level settings are used) and respond to any vibrations coming from touching the unit (i.e. adjusting Record or Volume levels). Make sure that you keep the remote cable itself from rubbing against or bumping the H4n or mic stand (if using one) while recording as that will also cause undesirable noise. I therefore tape the cable to the mic stand to preclude bumps. If a few extraneous noises are not an issue, then this is definitely not a problem.

                                                      Comments about Zoom RC4 Remote Control for H4n:

                                                      Great to avoid scuffling sounds with a very sensitive recorder.
