Brilliant Stereo Recording. Now in your pocket.Combining
powerful recording capability with elegance and simplicity, the H1 Handy Recorder is Zoom's smallest, most affordable recorder ever. The H1 Handy Recorder features Zoom's renowned recording technology and studio-quality microphones in their easiest, most portable device ever.
Now Zoom recording technology is available to everyone. And with an infinite variety of applications, you'll want to take your H1 everywhere. From musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals to seminars, conferences, journalism or capturing audio for video, the H1 gives you clean, clear stereo sound effortlessly.
The Zoom H1 is a pocket-sized microSD card recorder with a built-in X-Y stereo pair of microphones ready to record anything you point it towards. Conveniently back-lit for recording in dark environments, and able to be camera-mounted, the Zoom H1 is ideal for capturing shows, band rehearsals, and more. Normally, you can't stuff a recorder, preamps, microphones, and cables into your back pocket. Unless your last name is Bunyan, you'll have to settle for the Zoom H1.
Record to Rock-Solid SD Card Media
Pop a 32 GB microSD card in your Zoom H1 to record up to 50 hours of audio at 44.1 kHz/16-bit resolution. Zoom includes a 2 GB card to get you started -- plenty for a 2-hour recording. When you're done recording, transfer your files to your computer with the H1's handy USB 2.0 connection.
All Controls on Deck
Don't you just hate when you have to dig through menus to access any kind of control? So does Zoom. Zoom's H1 has all the controls conveniently located on the side. Volume, forward, stop and more are easily within your reach. A huge record button at the top lets you record without so much as thinking about where it is.
Built-in Stereo Condenser Mics
The Zoom H1 is equipped with an X/Y stereo pair of small-diaphragm condenser microphones. These microphones capture every detail of a conversation, band practice, or wedding reception, recording at up to 96 kHz/24-bit fidelity. The included 2 GB microSD card can record hours of audio at a time and the Zoom H1 provides up to 10 hours of continuous use on a single AA battery.
USB Transfer, Monitor Speaker and Camera Mount
If you're recording at home, you can simply connect via a USB 2.0 connection the H1 to your computer to edit your recorded tracks. A built-in monitor speaker is integrated so you can listen to your recording right away and catch any missed notes or audio. Smartly, the H1 doesn't leave you video recordists in the dark: the Zoom H1 can be tripod or shoe mounted, making it easy to capture with the same fidelity any audio that your camera's microphone lacks.
Optional Zoom APH1 Accessory Pack
Add this optional accessory kit to get a windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, padded-shell case and a mic clip adapter.
Not only is the Zoom H1 one of the most affordable handheld records out there, but it's also one of the handiest!
