Zoom F3 - professional mini field recorder with XLR and 32-bit float

Zoom F3 - professional mini field recorder with XLR and 32-bit float

[19:00 Wed,19.January 2022   by ]    

Japanese audio specialist Zoom has unveiled - in Japan only for now - its new F3 professional mini field recorder. The F3 measures only 7.5 x 7.3 x 4.7 cm and has two balanced XLR inputs, making it the bigger brother - both in terms of size and features - of the smaller one introduced about 2 years ago (Zoom F2 Field Recorder), which is only equipped with a mini jack. www.slashcam.de/news/single/Zoom-F2-Field-Recorder---Audio-Zwerg-mit-32-Bit-Fl-16175.html. Like the F2, the F3 records in WAV format using 32-bit float with a wide dynamic range.

The F3 Field Recorder is equipped with two AD converters (dual AD converters) for low gain and high gain and, according to Zoom, achieves a high signal-to-noise ratio without cracking even at high volumes in particularly or noisy environments. Since the input signal is recorded in a 32-bit float WAV format, recordings remain usable even with sudden changes in volume. Recordings are made on up to 1 TB microSDHC / microSDXC memory cards.

About the size of a hand and weighing 242 grams, the F3 has a compact and robust housing and can also be attached directly to a boom microphone with a Velcro strap for recording. Its interfaces include XLR inputs, a headphone and LINE output with dedicated volume control, and USB-C. Power comes from either two AA batteries (said to be enough for 8 hours of operation), an optional AC adapter, or via USB-C (from a powerbank, for example).

For control, the F3 has several control buttons - status is displayed via a 96 x 64 pixel resolution backlit LCD. Using the optional Bluetooth adapter "BTA-1", the F3 can also be controlled remotely via app - however, the associated iOS/Android app F3 Control will not be released until March.
