I have a Sony IC Recorder,ICD-MX20. I use this device to record a spare audio track for my video work. Will I have any advantage if I would purchase the H1 unit?
Hi Daniel. The microphones on the Zoom H1 will be a step up in quality over the mics on the ICD-MX20. I looked it up, but I couldn't find the information on what kind of files that Sony recorder makes. With the Zoom H1, you can plainly see that you have the option of recording a compressed MP3, or a full and rich sounding WAV file. The Sony recorder comes with a 32MB memory stick, while the Zoom H1 comes with a more commonly available MicroSD card with 2 gigs of space on it. Plus, theres the obvious advantage of being able to easily mount the H1 onto a shoe of a camera with an additional mounting accessory.
