Best option on a budget

  • Excerpt: The form factor is great it's really small and portable, doesn't feel super sturdy as it's a plastic body but overall this is matching the price range. I think the quality is pretty good and the range of options will give you enough flexibility for your money

  • Excerpt: Great little recorder, I love the size and weight. I have been doing some tests and am hoping to use with a lapel mic to capture audio of the vows for wedding video.

Best bang for your buck

27 July 2015
  • Excerpt: It's obviously not an h4n or an h6, so if you're looking for something with XLR inputs and more tracks expect to spend a lot more. For the price, this does everything I want and more.
  • Pros: Compact, Great Value, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor construction

  • Excerpt: This records great audio for the price. I purchased this for wedding videography. I am able to mic the groom and get clear audio without any static. Great product!

It's good for money... but not perfect

burnerman, B&H Photo
22 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I use the mic for weddings. I mic the groom and the officiant with two of these. It's great as a "backup" recorder when used with a lav. My only complaint? The first syllable uttered is too hot. The auto gain dials it back... but not fast enough for the first syllable to be decent.
  • Pros: Cheap and effective, Easy to use, Simple
  • Cons: Auto Gain Needs Work, Cheap construction

Not the best choice for portable mic

John Ricard, B&H Photo
15 July 2015
  • Excerpt: The unit is nice because it is very simple to operate and has a few stitches on the unit itself that allow you to change settings with having to use the menu. However, the Tascam DR-22WL is a much better choice.

Immersive Sound

Tim, B&H Photo
8 July 2015
  • Excerpt: The multi-directional mics are great for when you want to get all of the ambiance in a scene because it picks up a lot of really clear sound, which can also be a downside. Using this by itself can make it difficult to hear someone speaking, but that's pretty easily fixed by just getting a lav mic.
  • Pros: Clarity, Compact, Easy to use
  • Cons: Picks Up Background Sound
