Zoom F6 Field Recorder

The Zoom F6 redefines field recording. It combines 32-bit float recording and dual AD converters for unmatched dynamic range. It boasts 6 inputs, reliable time code, versatile power options, and wireless control.

In challenging field conditions, the F6 excels. It leverages its features to capture both loud and subtle sounds flawlessly, eliminating the need for gain adjustments.With a rugged, compact build, it offers six professional-grade preamps with a super-low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB). Advanced look-ahead hybrid limiters protect against overloads in 24-bit recording. Zoom AutoMix adjusts the levels of your mix to reduce ambient sound, and the F-Control (FRC-8) offers tactile control for trim, pan and track-arming. The Zoom F Control App for iOS provides wireless remote control, file management, and metadata entry, enhancing your field recording experience.

Capture the Calm and the Storm

The Zoom F6 is the first professional field recorder to feature both 32-bit float recording and dual AD converters, providing an unprecedented amount of dynamic range. With 6 inputs, Zoom’s solid time code, multiple power options and wireless control, the F6 is poised to be your new secret weapon.

32-Bit Float Recording

In the field, fluctuating dynamics can prove challenging. Loud sounds can cause clipping and quiet sounds can get lost in the noise. The F6 uses 32-bit float recording with dual A/D converters to capture both explosive and subtle sounds at full audio quality – without ever needing to adjust gain!

For Those Hard to Reach Places

Rugged enough to withstand the most demanding scenarios and small enough to fit into the tightest spaces, the F6 will become your go-to recorder.

Mic Preamps

The F6 is equipped with six professional-grade preamps. Featuring a super-low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN), high gain (up to 75 dB), and selectable mic/line levels for each input, the F6 is built for location sound.

Precision Time

Keep your tracks perfectly synced even when you power down for lunch. On or off, the F6’s Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy.

Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters

When recording in 24-bit, the F6 uses advanced look-ahead hybrid limiters to provide overload protection. By adding a 1-millisecond delay, the limiters “look ahead” anticipating clipping before it’s recorded.

Zoom AutoMix™

Zoom AutoMix™ lets you keep your eyes on the action by automatically adjusting the levels of your mix to reduce ambient sound.

Fine tune your mix

The Zoom F-Control (FRC-8) gives you more flexibility in the field. With 60 mm faders and controls for trim, pan and track-arming, the FRC-8 is a must-have for any professional filmmaker.

* The F-Control is sold separately.

Monitor What Matters

Use the F6 and your headphones to keep tabs on your tracks pre- or post-fader. Check levels, route signals to the left or right and set alert tones for battery and recording status.

iOS Wireless Control

The F6’s F Control APP lets you monitor signals, adjust levels, trigger transport controls, enter metadata and more from your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth.*

*Optional BTA-1 required

Ambisonic Audio

The F6’s Ambisonics mode offers precision A-to-B decoding and balanced gain linking, enabling you to capture spatial audio for VR, AR and more. Download the FREE Zoom Ambisonics Player software to decode and edit your 360-audio with ease.
