  • 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.
  • Pros: Codec, Size, Sound quality
  • Cons: Build Quality

Feels cheap, but excellent features and fantastic sound quality in a portable solution.

  • Summary: Product arrives and I open the box. The recording unit, microSD card with SD adapter, and one battery are included inside. No product manual :( but there was two papers that had a download access code to get their free audio software online. I pick up the recorder and am a bit surprised by the feel of it, as it's very lightweight and the plastic that it's made of feels cheap. This will end up being my least-favorite part about the Zoom H1 - the cheap casing and buttons.

  • Excerpt: This unit goes anywhere and is a perfect entry-level accompaniment to interviews, music, family events, like my 2nd old granddaughter conversing with her 92 great old great grandmother. The zoom performs as advertised.

  • Excerpt: I have used this recorder for some mandolin music and it has come out better than I could have hoped. Crisp sounds and the ability to mount it on tripods during recordings is great option. For this price it a 5 star purchase.

Good bang for the buck

  • Excerpt: This is a great little addition to your audio arsenal. I needed a recorder that I could hook up a lav system to (without dropping a lot on a wireless system) for shooting weddings. This is small enough to where I can conceal it in the officiant's coat pocket and still capture decent audio. I wouldn't say this is a long-term solution to capturing audio, but for what it is, it does a great job.

  • Excerpt: I am starting to do short film documentaries and needed sound bites to add within. I heard about various online site that you can buy sound fx/music from. I needed ambient forest sounds, running water, computer typing sounds and a subway environment sound (to name a few). I then saw and read the reviews about this mic.
  • Pros: Clarity, Clearity, Easy to use, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Looks Like A Taser

  • Excerpt: I use it when filming weddings, it's great to be able to just plug it in to a sound board and let it record. Battery easily can last all day.

  • Excerpt: For the price this recorder is great. I have it used to record from a mixer with no problems, I have used the onboard Mics recording with above than expected range results. The use of the auto-level is great so I dont have to worry about how hot my signal is.
  • Pros: Auto Signal Level, Line-in Recording, Small Footprint
  • Cons: none
