The F1-LP comes with Zoom’s newly engineered LMF-1 lavalier mic, designed for capturing every nuance. Combined with the F1, you can record high-resolution audio up to 24 bit/96 kHz, perfect for interviews, wedding vows, and more. With its minimal profile, the F1 attaches neatly on belts, waistbands, or slipped into a pocket so the recorder can be easily concealed.

The LMF-1 Lavalier mic connects directly to the F1 and records to a micro SD card. By recording directly to the F1, interference or noise commonly experienced when using a wireless beltpack system is eliminated. The F1’s one-touch buttons gives you easy access to record levels, limiter control, lo-cut filter and volume output. It’s newly designed monochromatic LCD display ensures visibility even in bright sunlight.

The Record Hold function or the Hold Switch can be used to prevent your subject from accidentally hitting buttons while recording. An on-board limiter and auto-level control keep your levels safe when spikes in loud volume occurs.

The F1 can be powered using two AAA batteries (included) or with the optional AD-17 power adapter. Transfer recordings to your computer in card reader mode or record directly to your computer or iPad using the F1 in USB audio interface mode. The F1 records audio in WAV or MP3 formats. WAV files are automatically time-stamped, making them Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant.

With our proprietary 10-pin connector, the F1 is compatible with all of Zoom’s interchangeable mic capsules, providing more options for recording. The Zoom F1 Field Recorder + Shotgun Mic is the ultimate solution for run-and-gun filmmakers who need to capture professional quality audio for video.

The F1-SP comes with the SGH-6 Shotgun Mic known for capturing pro-quality, hyper directional sound, and it’s aluminum body makes it extremely lightweight. Combined with the F1, you can record high-resolution audio up to 24 bit/96 kHz, providing high-impact audio for any video production. While recording to your camera, the F1 can also record to a microSD card, providing a stereo audio file which can be edited in post-production.

Monitor your levels, battery life, lo-cut settings and more with the F1’s newly designed monochromatic display, ensuring visibility even in bright sunlight. One-touch buttons make record levels, limiter settings, and volume output easily accessible.

The SMF-1 shock mount was engineered to eliminate unwanted thumping sounds caused by vibrations when shooting on the move. The F1’s tone generator provides a test tone to assist in setting proper audio levels. Sound markers make aligning audio and video easy. An on-board limiter keeps your levels safe when spikes in loud volume occurs.
