Zoom handheld recorders first shook the scene more than a decade ago and continue to raise expectations for what portable recording devices can do. Zoom's lightweight, user-friendly tools put professional-quality recording technology within reach of practically everyone. They're equally suited for documenting the live performances or for laying down studio tracks. Trouble-free flash memory and onboard USB ports make it easy to capture and upload tracks, and high-quality built-in condenser mics provide a well-defined 90/120-degree XY stereo pattern. Born of the same spirit of innovation as the company's audio tools, Zoom video recorders feature quality wide-angle optics, crisp LCD touchscreen displays, multiple HD modes, and tough, field-tested housings for long-term dependability.
