Combined by B&H to provide engineers in the field with everything they'd need to keep a Zoom F8 charged and powered (including the F8 Multi-Track Recorder itself), this ZOOM F8 Field Recorder Kit gives you the aforementioned F8, as well as a NP-style NiMH battery, a NP-1 Cap to Hirose 4 adapter cable, and a charger for the NP-1.
The F8 offers 192 kHz / 24-bit PCM recording, eight XLR/1/4" combo jacks with 75 dB of gain, and the ability to record up to 10 tracks at the same time. The adapter allows you to connect the NP-style NiMH battery, and the quick charger—compatible with NP-1 batteries—provides 12 to 14.4 VDC.
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.
Provides two sets of lockable XLR/TRS combo jacks with EIN of -127 dBu or less, +75 dB maximum input gain and support for +4 dB input
Records up to 192 kHz at 24-bit resolution
Records up to 10 tracks simultaneously with channels 1-8 and a stereo mix (left and right). Up to eight tracks can be recorded at a sampling rate of 192 kHz
Dual-Channel Recording of Separate Files at Lower Levels
Records backup recordings at a lower input level to help prevent unexpected loud noises from distorting the recording
Provides 10 dB of headroom with a threshold that can be set by the user
Supports SMPTE Timecode I/O
Uses a high-precision oscillator that enables the generation of accurate time code with a discrepancy of less than 0.2 frames per 24 hours
Allows you to send the audio signal to a video camera or other device while simultaneously monitoring
Allows for inputs 1-8 to be routed to outputs freely
Supports +24V and +48V phantom power
Three Possible Power Supplies
Can operate on AA batteries, an AC adaptor, or a 9 to 16 V external DC power supply (not included) with automatic switching between power supplies
Two SDXC Card Slots
Allows for SD card recording, and the use of SDXC cards enables extended recording capability. The unit can also be used as a card reader by connecting it to a computer via USB
USB Audio Interface Capabilities with up to 8 Ins and 4 Outs
Allows the unit to be used as a 2-in/2-out audio interface as well as an 8-in/4-out audio interface (driver required for Windows, not required for Mac)
Works as both a slate mic as well as a tool for voice memos
Zoom Mic Capsule Functionality
Supports the company's line of interchangeable mic capsules that can be used instead of inputs 1/2
Cable Techniques BB-NP - 15" NP-1 Cap to Hirose 4 Battery Bud Cable
This is an NP-1 Cap to Hirose 4 adaptor with a 15" input cable for use with the Cable Techniques Battery Bud distributor.
Core SWX NP-50 NiMH NP-1 Style Battery
The Core SWX NP-50 is a 13.2v, NP-style Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery. The NP-50 offers a current NP-style NiCd user an inexpensive way to upgrade to a newer battery technology.
NIMH - Environmentally Safe
Nickel Metal Hydride cells are essentially an extension of the prooven sealed Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) cell technology with the substitution of a hydrogen absorbing negative electrode for the cadmium based electrode. This substitution increases cell capacity and eliminates the toxicity concerns that cadmium based cells produce.
A 4 stage power gage is offered for easy capacity checks.
Frezzi FQC-NP1 Quick Charger for NP-1
The Frezzolini FQC-NP1 is a quick charger for NP-1 style batteries; it will charge NiCd and NiMH batteries one at a time. It offers charge indicators and worldwide voltage acceptance.
Note: Does not charge Lithium Ion chemistry
This small charger has an LED indicator for charge status.
The FQC-NP1 will accept power from 110 to 220 VAC @ 50/60 Hz allowing worldwide operation.
