In the following video, Rob Rives demonstrates the Zoom F4 Field Recorder, and how it can be a useful addition to any professional sound engineer’s inventory. This video explores the functions, controls, and features of the Zoom F4, including the inputs and outputs, signal flow, and peripherals, including the EXH-6 module for adding an additional set of inputs. We showcase the super-low-noise preamps, which offer 75 dB of gain and are taken from the flagship F8 recorder. Rives also shows off the integrated mixer, limiters with 10 dB of headroom, high-pass filters, mid-side decoding, and the high-quality monochromatic display. Additional topics covered include powering the unit with 8 AA batteries, Hirose connection for battery packs, or the included AC adapter.

In the following video, Rob Rives, from B&H, discusses the Zoom F8 Professional Multi-Track Field Recorder for Filmmaking and Sound Design.  Using both an Audio-Technica AT899 Condenser Lavalier Microphone, as well as a Schoeps CMC6 MK41 microphone mounted on an Auray Boompole with a Schoeps shockmount, Rives makes a direct comparison of sound quality at 24-bit/192 kHz resolution between the Zoom F8 Field Recorder and the more expensive Sound Devices 688 Professional Field Recorder.    The video explores the F8’s features including timecode support, three power options, dual SD card slots, redundant recording, its use as a multi-channel audio interface for Mac and PC, and compatibility with the company’s microphone capsules. It also includes wireless control with a mobile device using a dedicated app. These features make the F8 a powerful tool for everything from multi-tracking band rehearsals, recording sound for picture, and Foley work, among others—all in a portable and durable form factor.        We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com
