Audio Recorder: Zoom H2N

Level 1

This audio recorder is simple to use and is great for recording both voice and music.  It has built-in condenser microphones that offer different pickup patterns for directional or ambient recording.  There is also an option to activate both front and back microphones (ideal for interviews).  A stereo-mini jack will accept one of our Level I lavalier microphones if greater sound isolation is desired.

Wireless Lavalier Radio Microphone Kit (XLR)

Level 2

These kits transmit an audio signal over radio frequencies—tricky to set up, but great for situations when your talent is distanced from your camera and sound crew. Each kit includes a transmitter and receiver, which can be paired with our Zoom H4/H5 audio recorders or the XLR audio ports on our professional video cameras.
