Newsshooter at NAB 2015: Zoom F8

Newsshooter.com technical editor Matt Allard takes a look at the just-announced Zoom F8 mixer / recorder.

It’s an eight-channel recorder/mixer with four XLR / ¼” connectors, dual SD card readers and more interestingly an internal timecode generator.

Zoom are being a little cagey about specs beyond that but you’ll be able to attach any of their proprietary capsules you may have bought for use with previous recorders. They are also promising to have made the file structure and menu system used by the unit more user-friendly (an area where there has definitely been room for improvement in previous Zoom recorders).

Mini XLR and headphone outputs round off the package – Zoom will have more information in the summer and hope to be shipping at the end of 2015 for a ‘very affordable’ price.
