Good recorder in cheap-o package

  • Excerpt: The audio quality is really quite good, especially at this price, and it's easy to switch formats. I like the manual controls so much better than pages of menus. Quick start Rec and easy to see when it is recording. Stereo imaging is good. Handling noise is an issue, so be careful. The accessory package is nice, though the tripod is a bit lightweight, even for the price. My biggest grumble is the plastic-molded screw hole instead of a steel insert.
  • Pros: Easy to use controls, Good audio quality
  • Cons: Cut Corners On The Shell

H1... Handy little recorder

Nancy, B&H Photo
18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the Zoom H1 as a backup audio source when shooting video interviews. The sound quality is GREAT even at 16/44.1. The battery life is good, but I'd suggest having extra batteries on hand just in case. The biggest problem is the handling noise... HORRID!!! As long as the device is on a tripod you'll be completely satisfied with the H1's performance... DO NOT TRY TO HOLD IT WHILE RECORDING.
  • Pros: Compact Size, Easy to read display, Great price, Great sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Horrible Handling Noise

Good!

  • Excerpt: For the price you can't beat this. The built in onboard mic will definitely need a windscreen of some sort because it is extremely sensitive to wind. I use this primarily as a recorder for weddings but have also toyed around with the built in mic with vocals and guitar.

Compact backup recorder

Allan the Videographer, B&H Photo
8 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I used this as a backup recorder for a multi-camera setup, taking the headphones out of my mail camera, which was receiving a board feed, and monitoring out the H1's headphone jack. Putting the input level down to 15/100 resulted in a clear, distortion free recording. i've also been using it to capture ambient sound for use in editing. Only issue is it's very sensitive to handling noise, so I put it on a tiny tripod mount and get my hands away from it while recording.

Good product, especially with lavalier

  • Excerpt: I use this in conjuntion with lavaliers for interviews, although it also has its own mics on board. As an interview recording device, it give me good, clean sound and is extremely portable. Like it, like it, like it.
