Zoom F1-SP is a combination of the super-compact F1 recorder, and SGH-6 shotgun mic capsule.
SPOILER ALERT – For the ‘too long, didn’t read’ version, skip straight to the video tab below…
F1-SP is perfect for ‘run and gun’ applications, and sits comfortably on top of any DSLR camera, thanks to its extreme light weight, and shockmount.
Let’s check the “Essential Features for Videographers” as listed via ZOOM website:
CALIBRATE AND SYNC
F1 tone generator provides a test tone to assist in setting proper audio levels. Sound markers make aligning audio and video easy.
NO CHANCE OF OVERLOAD
An on-board limiter keeps your levels safe when spikes in loud volume occurs.
CONVENIENT POWER SOURCES
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 using the F1 in USB audio interface mode.
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.
