Excerpt: I am using the H1 as a backup for my H6 during wedding ceremonies and receptions. Also for capturing dialog and interview of the couple. I have been a great fan of Zoom. So far I own the Zoom H1, H2 and H6. The H1 records great audio and it is very simple to use. It does not have menues.
Excerpt: I really have to say, using lav mics directly to the cameras, to using wired audio units to using Sennheiser wireless units. I don't see a discernible difference between them. I mainly shoot interviews and for the money this is a much much cheaper and viable option instead of using wireless units.
Pros: Cost Effective, easy to use, Good audio quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: I have 3 of these that I specifically use for Ceremonies at weddings. I attach lav mics to two them and keep it recording on the groom and the officiant the whole Ceremony. The other is recording somewhere close to a speaker, to capture ambient audio. One of the best investments I've made.
Excerpt: I needed something to use external microphones since my cameras don't have inputs for these (a5000 and a6000). With this I can monitor my audio and use a shotgun or lavalier mic. It gives me levels and all the basics stuff I need.
Excerpt: I use this product as a means of recording 2nd audio during my weddings. This allows me to have a clear crisp professional sound of whomever is being recorded. It is small and packs a huge punch. Stays out of the way and is very comfortable for my clients to wear.
Excerpt: If you mic a person(s) with the H1 and a lapel mic, and they put the H1 in their pocket, you have no way of knowing if the audio is being captured ok. Therefore, make sure you also have an H1 recording audio on the table (on a small tripod) for safekeeping.
Excerpt: I've been using the H1 mainly for weddings and other promotional material. This thing comes in handy when needing audio during an interview or event as it can slip into a breast pocket or be held very easily. The audio out of it is very clean. If you get your levels set, you won't be disappointed.
Excerpt: I use this product for wedding videography, it has great sound quality. Its so tiny I can put it anywhere, even in a groom's pocket with a lav. Its been worry free so far. The sound quality is great. The only thing that lacks is the plastic build quality. It feels cheap.
