Zoom F8 overview

  • 1Description

The Zoom F8 Multi-Track Field Recorder & Carry Bag Kit from B&H comes with everything you need to start making professional recordings both on-set and in the field, and for applications such as filmmaking and electronics news gathering (ENG). The kit comes with the Zoom F8 Multi-Track Field Recorder, the Stingray Junior protective carrying bag with shoulder strap, and the KSWB1 Stingray waistbelt.

  • Zoom F8 Multi-Track Field Recorder

    The Zoom F8 Multi-Track Field Recorder is designed for professional and enthusiast recording applications on set and in the field, including music, filmmaking, and electronics news gathering (ENG). Designed to be carried by a shoulder strap or in a bag, the unit features eight analog input channels with lockable XLR/TRS combo jacks that provide +75 dB maximum input gain, and support for +4 dB inputs with an EIN of -127 dBu or less. It can record up to 10 tracks simultaneously (channels 1-8 plus a stereo mix), or up to eight channels when recording at the A/D converter's maximum 24-bit 192 kHz resolution.

    Alternatively, you can perform dual-channel recording of separate files at lower volume levels to ensure you have backup recordings to use when unexpected loud noises distort the primary recording. A newly designed limiter provides up to 10 dB of headroom. The unit supports SMPTE time code input and output. Included in the outputs is a powerful 100 mW + 100 mW headphone jack, as well as the MAIN OUT 1/2 and SUB OUT 1/2 jacks so you can send the audio signal to a video camera or other device while monitoring with headphones.

    The unit's internal mixing capability enables flexible routing, and the inclusion of individually selectable +24V/+48V phantom power ensures you can use your favorite condenser microphones.

    Power to the recorder can be supplied in one of three ways: via AA batteries, an AC adapter, or a 9 to 16V external DC power supply. Two SDXC card slots can be used simultaneously for recording even longer sessions, and can also be used as card readers when connected to a computer via USB.

    When operating via USB, the unit can be used in a 2-in/2-out configuration as well as an 8-in/4-out audio interface (driver required for windows). A built-in slate mic allows you to make voice memos and the unit's slate tone can be used to confirm specific levels.

    Among the most innovative features of the recorder is support for the company's interchangeable microphone capsules.

  • K-Tek Stingray Junior - Audio Mixer Recorder Bag

    The Stingray Junior from K-Tek is an audio mixer recorder bag designed for small rigs with a couple of wireless receivers and transmitters. Like its larger brethren, the Stingray Junior offers a dual full vertical frame that allows the bag to better stand on its own, while protecting equipment and providing full access to the sides and bottom of the mixer recorder to access connectors and media. The large trap door on the bottom and zippered side access panels complement the accessibility offered by the frame and further ease setup, cabling, and battery swaps.

    Over-sized side pockets offer plenty of room to store NP batteries, while Hook-and-Loop access allows cabling from side pockets into the main compartment. A separate front compartment can be expanded or closed tight and is protected by a rigid front panel. Various cable pass-through locations and smart storage points allow for versatility when using various equipment choices and recording environments. Web loops, Molle straps, and D-Rings offer plenty of rigging points for additional accessories and allow the Stingray Jr. to be connected by harnesses and waist-belts. The built-in kickstand allows the bag to sit at an angle when placed on a tabletop or when resting on the ground. The Stingray Jr. ships with an adjustable shelf divider, a shoulder strap, a clear shield, and a stealth cover.

    General Features
    • Rigid internal vertical frame for strength and stability
    • Side Pockets large enough to hold NP batteries with cup adapters
    • Bottom trap door for fast access and convenience
    • Built in kick-stand for table mixing
    • Collapsible front pocket with Molle Straps and hard protective front
    • Comes with Clear Shield, Stealth Cover and Shoulder Strap
    • Perfect companion for the optional K-Tek Waist belt and is fully compatible with the optional Stingray Harness.

  • K-Tek KSWB1 Stingray Waistbelt for Small Audio Mixer/Recorder Bags

    The KSWB1 Stingray Waistbelt from K-Tek is designed for smaller gear packages centered on the Sound Devices 633 and the Zaxcom Maxx (sold separately) or similar sized mixer/recorders. It can be used by the audio professional with or without a mixer bag in applications for sound designers, field producers, ENG (Electronic News Gathers), videographers, and more.

    Connecting to the KSWB1, which is secured by an inner belt, there is one buckle on each side that attaches to two carabiners. The carabiners connect to the top and bottom of the backside of your audio mixer bag, and a single strap loop allows for tightening and loosening of both carabiners in one swift motion, while still allowing individual adjustment.

    With plenty of strap length; however, the versatile design makes the harness suitable for various body types and sizes, and with Molle Straps and D-Rings along the back, it offers plenty of rigging points for additional accessories. In conclusion, the KSWB1 Stingray Waistbelt creates solutions for everyday tasks.
