Bundled by B&H for your convenience, this Zoom F8n Multitrack Field Recorder Kit provides the aforementioned field recorder, an ORCA OR-28 Mini Audio Bag, and an ORCA Audio Bag Harness for carrying it all around the set. The recorder offers eight XLR-1/4" combination inputs with +75 dB of gain, as well as the ability to record 10 tracks simultaneously at sample rates and resolutions of up to 192 kHz/24-bits. Its onboard lookahead limiters can help eliminate clipping, and the AutoMix function can automatically adjust levels to reduce the amount of ambient noise in your recordings.
The ORCA OR-28 Mini Bag sports an internal honeycomb frame to protect the F8n, as well as a transparent TPU top, two handles, and multiple pockets. The harness helps distribute the weight of the F8n while you operate it in the field or on set. It sports an EVA skeleton and mesh fabric for ventilation.
