Samson Zoom H1

Handheld recorder

Weighing about 2oz, the H1 features the same studio-quality microphones as Zoom's H2. Two onboard microphones are configured in an X/Y pattern, for stereo imaging depth and clarity. The pocket-sized H1 delivers crystal clear 24-bit/96kHz stereo recordings. With a newly designed user interface that places all its functions at the touch of a button, Zoom also included access to the track marker, auto record, low cut filter, level and volume controls with onboard buttons and no menus. The H1 can accommodate up to 32GB micro SDHC memory cards, providing more than 50 hours of recording time. An accessory kit includes a windscreen, ac adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, soft carrying pouch and mic clip adapter.
