Zoom F1 recorder announced

Say hello to the new Zoom F1 - a small , yet capable audio recorder which can work with your DSLR and still become pocketable for any situation.

The F1 , which features a Audio in and an audio out jack for monitoring audio or giving a line out ,is perfect for cameras which sometimes lack a dedicated headphone jack . This , combined with the fact that the F1 supports all Zoom accessories with Zoom’s audio interface means that you can convert this from an basic recorder to a shotgun or lavalier set-up with ease . Powered by two AAA batteries , the recorder can power something like a lav set up for about 10 hours , but keep in mind that this decreases with the type of accessory . Overall the F1 recorder is basically a must have if you are the sort of videographer who wants a compact , light weight and easy to use set up for not much money , speaking of money , the F1 costs $199 and this comes with a Lavalier mic and a belt clip .
