    The ZOOM F4 - Hollywood Sound Goes Indie

    Professional Field Recording Has Never Been So Accessible
    Creators are making more waves in film than ever before. Thanks to affordable technology and distribution channels like YouTube, we're ushering in a new era of creativity.and it's only just begun. The Zoom F4 propels your film's sound to a whole new level. With 6-input/8-track recording, super-low-noise mic preamps, and time code with pinpoint accuracy, the F4 offers Hollywood sound at an indie budget.

    The Essentials For Professional Recording
    Super Low-Noise Mic Preamps
    The F4 is equipped with our highest-quality mic preamps. Like the F8, the F4's mic preamps enable pristine recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz. Its impressive audio specs include an extremely low noise floor (-127dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75dB), with +4dB line-level inputs.

    TCXO Time Code
    For precise audio/video syncing, the F4 utilizes a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2ppm accuracy - a first for this price point. The F4 supports all standard drop frame and non-drop formats, and can jam sync to time code provided by external devices. Standard BNC connectors enable easy integration into any rig.

    Advanced Onboard Limiters
    Advanced onboard limiters provide overload protection which lets you capture audio in a wide range of dynamic sound environments. Limiting can be applied to all 4 channels simultaneously at full resolution, with 10dB of headroom and controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.

    Multiple Recording Features
    The F4 gives you recording options such as Multi-Track, Dual SD Card & Dual-Channel recording as well as Camera Return for monitoring audio sent to your camera and built-in shortcuts that give you access to TC Jam, Trim Link, Clear Clip and others.

    Onboard Mixer & Effects
    An onboard mixer allows for flexible signal routing from all inputs to all outputs (pre- or post-fader) with user-adjustable level, pan, and input/output delay. Built-in limiters can be applied to all channels and tracks simultaneously. The F4 also includes built-in high-pass filtering to reduce the sound of wind and other noise, plus phase inversion and Mid-Side decoding.
