Advances in video have made filmmaking accessible to creators everywhere. But the accessibility of professional audio devices has not kept pace. Field recorders, with essential features such as time code, have been unobtainable for most. Until now. The F8 is made for serious filmmakers and sound designers. With 8-input/10-track recording, super low-noise preamps, and support for 24-bit/192 kHz audio, the F8 captures the highest-quality audio.High-resolution audio and advanced limitersOutfitted with Zoom’s finest mic preamps to date, the F8 features an extremely low noise floor (127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB), with +4 dB line inputs. The F8 can record at 24-bit/192 kHz resolution and is equipped with onboard limiters designed to provide overload protection. Limiting can be applied to all 8 channels simultaneously at full resolution, with 10 dB of headroom and controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.Time code with pinpoint accuracyThe F8s time code is state-of-the-art. It utilizes a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy, enabling rock-solid syncing of audio and video. The F8 supports all standard drop frame and non-drop formats, and can jam sync to time code being provided by external devices. An input and output are provided on standard BNC connectors, enabling easy integration into any rig.Weight and buildThe F8 is not only versatile and feature rich, it is the smallest field recorder with eight XLR combo preamps ever made. Weighing just 2.1 pounds (without batteries), its aluminum chassis is both rugged and durable.DisplaySound professionals sometimes work in dusty, hard-to-see environments. Level meters with adjustable brightness and its 2.4 inch full-color backlit LCD (which can be set to monochrome mode), make the F8 easy to use in any environment from lo8-channel/10-track field audio recorder/mixer 8 discrete inputs with locking Neutrik XLR/TRS combo connectorsCompact and lightweight aluminum chassis, weighing just 2 pounds (without batteries)High quality mic preamps with up to 75 dB gain, less than -127 dBu EIN, and +4 dB line inputsSupport for up to 24-bit/192 kHz recording as well as 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz, and 44.1 kHz, plus 47.952 kHz/48.048 kHz for HD video compatibility; 16-/24-bit resolutionAccurate Time Code (0.2 ppm) I/O on standard BNC connectors; dropframe/non-drop formats with Jam SyncThree different power supply options: 8x AA batteries, external DC battery pack with Hirose connector, or 12V AC adapter (AAs and DC battery pack not included)Automatic switching of power source from DC to batteries at user-defined voltage levelsDedicated gain control knob, 6-segment LED level meter, and PFL/Solo switch for each channelPhantom power (+48V/+24V) on every preamp Advanced onboard limiter
