Have you ever had a thought or idea that you were not able to write down at that point in time for whatever reason? I have, and the worst part is that later, when I am ready to document the thought, I can’t even recall it fully.
Get yourself the Zoom H2N Handy Recorder and record your thoughts for future use. This professional-grade portable recorder can also be used by reporters, or to record podcasts for your web site. If you’re on holiday, use it to record the birds chirping or the gurgling of that stream behind your hotel and then integrate the audio into your video recordings.
You can even use it to record your child’s first words. The H2N Handy Recorder is the only one with five microphone capsules that give you four recording modes. It is the first hand-held recorder to give you Mid-Side stereo recording capability, a technique that is commonly used in films and television. You also get X/Y and perfect surround sound recording.
The H2N uses SD/SDHC cards, with a 32GB SDHC card giving you up to 50 hours of recording time (16-bit/44.1kHz WAV format). The H2N is powered by two standard AA alkaline batteries. It can be operated continuously for up to 20 hours.
It also comes with an optional AC adapter. A backlit 1.8” LCD display helps you monitor the recording, while the built-in reference speaker enables you to instantly play back what you’ve recorded.
The data recovery function ensures that that even in case of battery loss or accidental power-down, your data is restored when you next power the recorder on. The recorder can easily be connected to your computer using the high-speed USB2.0 interface. The H2N is priced at $199, and is available at Best Buy.
