The F4 Field Recorder and Audio Bag Kit from B&H is a portable digital multi-track recorder and audio bag designed to provide flexible high-resolution recording and efficient access and transport for sound designers, videographers, and field recordists on set or in various indoor and outdoor production locations. It includes a Zoom F4 six-input field recorder and a K-Tek Stingray Mixpro audio bag. The F4 operates at up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution and features four XLR-1/4” combo jack inputs, a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input, and XLR, 3.5mm, and 1/4" outputs. Built-in limiters on every input and output protect against overloading and minimize distortion. Each of the high-gain microphone preamps offers phantom power, dedicated metering, and level control. The easy-to-read LCD display gives access to the integrated mixer, which allows adjustments to level, panning, delay, high-pass filtering, and more. For synchronization with video devices, ultra-precise timecode is supported via BNC connectors.

The Stingray Mixpro easily and securely houses the F4 and provides additional compartments for battery packs, power supplies, cables, and more. Its padded shoulder strap delivers comfort during long shoots and sessions.

  • Zoom F4 Multitrack Field Recorder with Timecode - 6 Inputs / 8 Tracks

    Designed to provide big Hollywood sound on an affordable indie budget, Zoom F4 is a 6-input / 8-track professional field recorder featuring super-low-noise preamps and timecode with pinpoint accuracy. The unit provides recording and playback resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz with impressive audio specs including an extremely low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to +75 dB), with +4 dB line-level inputs. The on-board temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) generates timecode at 0.2 ppm accuracy and supports all standard drop-frame and non-drop formats, as well as jam sync for external devices.

    The advanced on-board limiters provide overload protection for all inputs and outputs, which lets you capture audio in a wide range of environments. Limiting can be applied simultaneously at full resolution with 10 dB of headroom and features controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.

    The F4 offers four combo XLR-1/4" inputs, a 1/8" stereo input, and includes a Zoom mic-capsule input for recording six discrete tracks with an additional stereo mix, all at full 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. Additionally, inputs 5/6 can function as a camera return for audio-monitoring only for confidence checks. The dual-SD card slot features simultaneous recording to both cards allowing you to make a backup or split recording with all eight tracks on one card and a stereo mix on the other.

    Each of the four XLR-1/4" inputs offers a dedicated preamp with gain control, phantom power, a six-segment LED level meter, plus a Record Ready and PFL switch. In addition to the 1/4" headphone output with a dedicated volume control, the F4 provides two main balanced XLR outputs, as well as two sub outs on a single unbalanced 1/8" stereo mini-jack, enabling easy connection to a camera. All timecode I/O is provided on BNC connectors and the unit includes a variable-frequency slate-tone generator to confirm levels.

    The front panel offers an output button, which provides quick access to the unit's outputs, while the option button offers quick access to TC Jam, Trim Link, Clear Clip and other important shortcuts. An easy-to-read 1.9" LCD display is suitable for use in all lighting environments including dark low-light sets to bright sunlight. The on-board mixer not only provides user-adjustable level, pan, and input/output delay, but also offers high-pass filtering for noise and wind reduction, phase inversion, and Mid-Side decoding. The F4 ships with a camera-mount adapter, a DHC-1 DC-HIROSE adapter, an AC power adapter, and download codes for Cubase LE and Wavelab LE.
