Zoom Microphones Introduces F2 and F2-BT Field Recorders



Zoom introduced the F2 and F2-BT field recorders. For podcasters, videographers, bloggers, journalists and more, the F2 is the perfect audio solution for creators on the move. F2 is available with or without Bluetooth.

The F2 features 32-bit float recording technology, allowing you to record the loudest audio signals without worrying about clipping. It will also record the quietest signals in beautiful detail. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about setting the gain. Just plug in the lav and hit record. Once you start your recording, use the F2’s HOLD switch to ensure you don’t accidentally stop recording. Screw in connectors keep your lav plugged-in securely no matter the situation.

The F2-BT comes with built-in Bluetooth. And with the free Zoom F2 Control, the F2-BT can wirelessly start/stop recordings, display battery levels, adjust output volume, control lo-cut and more. You can also pair the F2-BT with a Bluetooth timecode synchronization device to receive and write timecode to recorded files.

The F2 Editor for PC and Mac allows you to adjust settings, format SD cards and more. Simply connect your F2 or F2-BT via a USB cable and launch the editor. The USB connection also makes it easy to transfer files to your computer.
