Excerpt: Let me say that this is a great product if you read the manual. The manual is 60 some pages long and the defaults that are marked in the manual aren't correct. If you are the type of person who is going to sit down with your new recorder and the manual and go through the manual page by page and...
Pros: Does everything, Really great quality, Will Connect To Everythin
Cons: Doesn't come with charger, Must read the manual, Only Records Wav And Mp3
Excerpt: This is a great portable recorder. I usually use the XLR inputs for mics which has yielded terrific audio. I'm still getting the hng of the onboard mics, (i.e. In what situation to use which mic) but my hope is that I just need to figure it out.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded from an H4n which we all had or have. If I only knew then what I know now about sound gear, I would not have bought the H4n. If you want to know the differences between the H4n and this unit, go to KenRockwell.com and read both reviews.
Pros: Dual Battery Power, Jog Wheel, many controls, Many In's And Out's, Metal Construction, Record Level Knob
Excerpt: This is a great, simple audio recorder that works really well to record independently or as a sort of pre-amp that runs into the camera. However, the one caveat is you have to increase the gain when paired with a Rode RTG-2 boom microphone. I'm not sure how it would work with another microphone.
Pros: Easy to use, Great For Low Budget, Great Sound quality
Excerpt: This is a handy unit for recording with phantom powered mics, like a shotgun for interview, or a stereo pair for ambience. One great feature is that you have two batteries-an internal rechargable and a place for AAs. When you receive a new unit, listen to the XLR inputs at high gain.
Excerpt: does a good job. 2 problems I have: 1. rechargeable batter life is poor. About 4 hours on full charge. 2. the XLR mic level knobs are on the side and they are not the easiest to adjust on the fly.
Excerpt: This is a solid field recorder. It is not intuitive but once you get the hang of it, it is a great value. It is a bit bigger than I would like for carrying around but for the price and quality it really is the best.
Excerpt: I'll be using this product to record double system sound for films. Very nice unit with many of the features I will use: high dart rate files, XLR inputs, AC power available. My only negative is that the owners manual is not very clear in some areas, but I was able to figure it all out and I am very...
Excerpt: Overall, good recorder, with a rechargeable LI battery--which is a huge plus. But, sometimes all the features, buttons, and settings can get in the way in "run-and-gun" type situations. Also, very sensitive to popping-P's, even with windscreens, etc.
Excerpt: This is an excellent hand held field recorder with an easy interface for menu navigation. The quality using the built in mikes is very usable, even better when you plug in external condenser mikes powered using the on board phantom power. We have a dozen of these in the Dept of Cinema at SFSU.
Pros: Compact, Easy Menu Navigation, Easy To Use, Versatile
