Zoom F4 MultiTrack Field Recorder
Get major motion picture audio quality without breaking your indie film budget with the Zoom F4, a sound bag–friendly, multi-track field recorder with look-ahead limiters for distortion-free 24-bit audio, and up to 6-input / 8-track recording for filmmaking and video content creation on set and in the field. Like other F-Series recorders such as the F6 and F8n, you can slide it in a sound bag, sling it over your shoulder, or mount it to a camera; the F4 packs quantity and quality into a rugged frame that’s more than ready for filmmaking, production/location sound mixing, sound effects recording, and electronic news gathering (ENG).
From the large, informative display and user-friendly controls to the flexible powering options and precision time code functionality, the F4 is properly equipped to please novices and demanding veterans alike. Whether you need long-duration stereo recording for an interview, redundant capture of multi-mic setups for a video shoot, or Ambisonics sound files for virtual reality and 360-audio projects, the F4 has the modes, resolutions, and media support to handle your crucial audio tasks. Plus, its operational versatility ensures that the F4 will always enhance your workflow, be it simple, complex, or always changing. You can feel confident using it as your main recorder, a USB audio interface for your dedicated computer rig, or a backup unit for added safety. Since it supports dual SD card recording, 2-channel safety recording, and 6-second pre-recording, you can stop worrying about losing takes.
