Whether you’re capturing audio for your latest home video, recording a podcast, or just making some sweet music, the Zoom H5 Handy Recorder puts broadcast quality equipment right in your hand. Capable of four-track simultaneous recording, compatible with all Zoom input capsules, and bundled with a Zoom X/Y microphone capsule to get you started, the H5 is one of the easiest ways to step into the field of professional audio recording.
To jump start your sound capture, the X/Y capsule features two matched unidirectional microphones housed in an advanced shock mount, giving you a powerful mic that can process loud sounds, avoid handling noise, and achieve full clarity. If you’d like to add something more to the mix, you can switch out for any Zoom capsule or take to the dual combo XLR/TRS inputs that can handle microphones, mixers, electronic keyboards, and more. Each input has a dedicated gain control knob and can supply phantom power if you have a microphone in need.
As you process the sound, you can choose the file format (WAV or MP3), any compression or limiting, and either stereo or multitrack recording. For more customization, there is a host of recording modes as well as additional filters, a chromatic tuner and metronome, and multiple playback options. As you record, all of your audio is safely stored on SD or SDHC cards and can be easily transferred to your computer when you’re ready to master. For full versatility, the H5 can operate with two AA batteries and can mount to a DSLR or camcorder, giving you a fully powerful audio capture device that can go everywhere you do.
