Zoom announced a new 8 track field recorder at NAB this week. There isn’t much info available on it just yet, but they have teased some of the specs for now.
The Zoom F8 will be an 8 channel multi-track field recorder and mixer with four XLR / ¼ inputs on both sides. It includes a dual SD card reader, is powered by DC input or eight AA batteries, and even includes an internal timecode generator. It has 2 mini XLR outputs, a ¼ headphone jack, and a mini-sub output.
Zoom is known for their handheld audio recorders, but this is the first time they’ve presented a field mixer of this type. It will be available in the fourth quarter of this year but the price has not yet been set. More information will be available later this summer.
