Solid Audio Recorder at a Good Price

Flash Parker, Adorama
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this to serve two purposes; to record interviews, and to act as an on-camera mic on my DSLR video rig (at least until I pick up a shotgun mic to replace it).<br /><br />I'm still learning the ropes, but so far audio comes out clean and spot on; the capture is excellent. I've used a wired LAV mic successfully, and had luck using it on top of my DSLR rig as well.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Quality Construction

  • Excerpt: Works great for recording sound tracks on documentaries and other video productions. The mike on DSLRs are not adequate, and the H4N gives me the ability to get outstanding sound on my projects.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Versatile

Great Value

  • Excerpt: We use this in our video production and its so light and portable that we use this thing a lot, I mean a lot. Although there was a already an H6 when we bought this, (we do not require a lot of inputs) we felt that this gadget would suit best to our needs. We do mainly corporate video interviews and this thing suits our requirements very well. the new model is kinda overkill for us. so value for money, this really fits our budget and need.

Amazing Recorder

  • Summary: I have used this mostly for interviews, and this little recorder is top notch quality. I use it on it's own sometimes, but mostly with the Rode videomic pro and it makes a great 2-sound system. Great investment.

Great Recorder

Budman 49, B&H Photo
6 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I used this recorder for my video I did for Multi-Media class. It is easy to set up and the capture is really good. I had my friend Danita monitor the recording with headphones and the resulting audio will be used in my video production. This recorder is made really well and seems like it will be durable. I have two more semesters of video, so this recorder will get well used. I like the remote, just wish it had a stop button.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile

Amazing

  • Excerpt: Really simple interface, really high quality recording. I recorded musicians in a warehouse who were at times next to the recorder, and at times 50 feet away, and I heard everything. I haven't delved into the world of high end recording, have thus far only used simple pocket recorders like these, but I feel the h4n brings high level recording into the hands of the consumer. I love it.
