Zoom F1 Field Recorder with Lavalier Microphone

The Zoom F1 Field Recorder with Lavalier Microphone is the perfect solution for videographers who need to capture the nuance of every word with professional quality audio.

Sound and Story

The F1 Field Recorder with Lavalier Microphone completes your video’s story by providing outstanding audio no matter where your production takes you.

Capture Every Nuance

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.

Low Profile Design

With its minimal profile, the F1 attaches neatly on belts, waistbands, or slipped into a pocket so the recorder can be easily concealed.

Worry-Free Recording

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.

One-Touch Controls,  Easy-To-Read  Display

The F1’s one-touch buttons give you easy access to record levels, limiter control, low-cut filter and volume output. It’s newly designed monochromatic LCD display ensures visibility even in bright sunlight.

Essential Features for Videographers

  • AUTO LOCK: The Record Hold function or the Hold Switch can be used to prevent your subject from accidentally hitting buttons while recording.
  • NO CHANCE OF OVERLOAD: An onboard limiter and auto-level control keep your levels safe when spikes in loud volume occur.
  • CONVENIENT POWER SOURCES: The F1 can be powered using two AAA batteries (included) or with the optional AD-17 power adapter.
  • USB CONNECTIVITY: 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.

Record in Multiple Audio Formats

The F1 records audio in WAV or MP3 formats. WAV files are automatically time-stamped, making them Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant.

One Recorder,  Multiple Mic Options

With our proprietary 10-pin connector, the F1 is compatible with all of Zoom’s interchangeable mic capsules, providing more options for recording.

Show Details

This is the perfect small field recorder for weddings and interviews. The limiter works really well, as does the low cut filter. Having various record levels puts the control in your hands for the type of audio you need to record. I highly recommend the Zoom F1 even for vlogging or podcasts. The mic will not come undone when you tug on the wire because of the screw in jack that secures the mic. The tone that plays before and after a recording makes it so simple to sync up with audio recorded on other devices and in no time you are able to do any sort of correction to your sound. Every vlogger/podcaster/interviewer needs this.
