Zoom H3-VR Handy Audio Recorder with Built-In Ambisonics Mic Array

The Zoom H3-VR Handy Audio Recorder is a compact audio recorder with a built-in Ambisonics mic array offering flexible 360° audio capture as well as integrated Ambisonics A-to-B conversion, eliminating the need for external processing. The device goes well beyond VR applications, and is additionally geared towards sound recordists, audio engineers, and content creators in music, audio-for-video, game audio, and AR production.

It features an Ambisonics mic array with four microphone capsules, which can be utilized to record in Ambisonics, stereo binaural, or standard stereo modes, making it well suited for detailed reproduction of studio-based instrument ensembles and solo performances, audiences, sound effects, EFP, and more. The H3-VR supports full-sphere surround sound recording at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz, as well as real-time stereo/binaural monitoring and on-board Ambisonics A-to-B conversion, eliminating the need for additional processing with a computer in post. You can even export your Ambisonics recordings as stereo, binaural, or 5.1 audio files using the free Zoom Ambisonics Player software (downloadable to a Mac or Windows computer).

The unified single-knob gain control, LCD screen, and transport/menu buttons deliver easy and efficient device configuration and operation. Remote access to transport controls, levels, and metadata is possible via the iOS H3-VR Control app and optional BTA-1 Bluetooth adapter. An integrated 6-axis motion sensor is utilized to provide automatic detection of the microphone position, which ensures proper audio-to-video orientation alignment and simple angle leveling. Dual 3.5mm outputs with independent level control enable simultaneous connection to headphones and a camera. Record to a microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC card (available separately), or stream audio via USB to a computer or iOS device. The built-in slate function can be used to verbally mark takes and manually align audio and video files.

The H3-VR supports powering via two AA batteries or a USB connection, and its power LED also serves as a clip indicator. A 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom of the H3-VR accommodates attachment to a standard camera tripod. At less than 5" tall and 3" wide, this recorder is visually discreet and unobtrusive. It is supplied with a foam windscreen, a dual mount adapter, and two AA batteries.

Music Recording Applications in Stereo or 3D Sound:

Accurately capture rehearsals, ensembles, and solo performances in recording studios and concert halls; you can spice up your stereo recordings with the binaural mode that tracks at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz to enhance 2D productions with spatially accurate imaging compatible with standard headphones

Sound for Film

MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Travel Tripod (Titanium)

The titanium RoadTrip Air Travel Tripod from MeFoto is a sturdy, lightweight, and compact aluminum alloy support designed for the modern enthusiast and smartphone photographer.

Extending to a maximum height of 61" and capable of supporting up to 13.2 lb, the RoadTrip Air is not all that different from its Classic series sibling—with one big difference—HyperLocks. The telescoping 5-section HyperLock design allows the user to set-up and break-down the tripod with speed and ease by simply turning the rubber foot in one direction to extend the leg and in the opposite direction to lock it at the desired length. This design also helps to reduce the tripod's overall weight down to a transportable 2.5 lb.

Appealing to both system camera users and smartphone photographers, the Air series comes equipped with a few features that many users will find both fashionable and functional. Starting off, the Air series features a color-matched Arca-type compatible ball head, which not only includes a color matched Arca-type plate, but is also capable of independent 360° pans—an uncommon feature on a ball head this compact. Secondly, the entire center column may be removed from the tripod and, using HyperLock technology, is capable of extending into a stand-alone selfie stick. A folding smartphone adapter is included for convenience as is a universal Bluetooth remote capable of triggering the camera on most smartphones. Lastly, MeFoto aims to make user manuals a thing of the past with new intuitive icons on the tripod's body. Each icon is placed at a point of interest or adjustment and details, in easy-to-understand pictograms, how to adjust the tripod for any shooting situation.

For those looking to use the RoadTrip Air for low-angle photos or on a table top, each one of the tripod's anodized aluminum legs can be spread independently down to a minimum height of 11.4". The 3-position leg angle stops allow the user to adjust the tripod's height to accommodate almost any shooting situation. Additionally, a removable spring-loaded hook is located in a recess at the bottom of the center column, allowing you to hang a variety of weighted objects to increase the tripod's overall stability.

As a travel tripod, the RoadTrip Air is designed to fold in an inverted style with the 3 legs collapsing upward around the center column. This design allows the RoadTrip to attain a compact folded length of just 11.4", which fits conveniently within the included soft carrying case.

HyperLock Leg Locks

The HyperLock design allows the user to set-up and break-down with a single knob.

Built-In Selfie Stick

The integrated Selfie Stick utilizes the ball head for positioning and includes a Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote.

Lightweight and Compact

Fits into luggage and won't weigh you down with a folded length of 11.4" and a weight of just 2.5 lb.

Simple Set-Up

User-friendly icons highlight points of adjustment on the tripod and make user manuals a thing of the past.

Dual Action Ball Head

Included ball head features a primary lock, separate 360° independent pan lock, and utilizes an industry standard Arca-type compatible quick release.

SmallRig 2161 Multifunction Crab Clamp with 3" Ball Head Arm

The 2161 Multifunction Crab Clamp with 3" Ball Head Arm from SmallRig enables you to mount a 1/4"-20 threaded camera accessory, small light, or other component onto a rod or surface measuring up to 2" in width.

The 3" clamp arm includes a 180° mini ball head at each end, enabling you to position your accessory at almost any angle. This clamp tightens easily using its large wingnut.

C2G CAT6 Snagless Shielded STP Ethernet Network Patch Cable (20', Black)

The black CAT6 Snagless Shielded STP Ethernet Network Patch Cable from C2G transfers and protects data on bandwidth-intensive networks. This cable meets ANSI/TIA 568 C.2 CAT6 component requirements and is 20' long. It features individual pairs that are bonded together to maintain a twisted-pair design right up to the termination point. This design and the RJ45 plugs help minimize Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT) levels. In high EMI environments, integrated shielding protection guards your network from noise and electromagnetic interference. Furthermore, it has snagless hoods and reduces both impedance and structural return loss (SRL).
