A field recorder that lets you capture all the action

The Zoom F1 Field Recorder with Shotgun Microphone allows you to capture professional audio everywhere your camera takes you.

High Impact Audio

The F1-SP comes with the SGH-6 Shotgun Mic known for capturing pro-quality, hyper-directional sound, and its aluminium body makes it extremely lightweight. Combined with the F1, you can record high-resolution audio up to 24 bit/96 kHz, providing high-impact audio for any video production.

Ready, Aim, Record

Connect the F1 and Shotgun to the included shock mount and attach it to your camera.
Then connect the F1’s audio output to your camera’s input using the included 3.5mm stereo cable and you’re ready to record.

Audio Redundancy

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.

Bright Light? No Problem.

Monitor your levels, battery life, lo-cut settings and more with the F1’s newly designed monochromatic display, ensuring visibility even in bright sunlight.

One-Touch Controls

One-touch buttons make record levels, limiter settings, and volume output easily accessible.

Smooth Ride

The SMF-1 shock mount was engineered to eliminate unwanted thumping sounds caused by vibrations when shooting on the move.

Essential Features for Videographers 

  • CALIBRATE AND SYNC: The F1’s 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 onboard limiter keeps 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 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 options for any recording situation.
