Zoom F1-SP Field Recorder with Shotgun Microphone

In The Box

  • F1-SP Field Recorder with Shotgun Microphone
  • SGH-6 Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H5 and H6 Recorders
  • SMF-1 Shockmount for F1 Field Recorder
  • WSS-6 Foam Windscreen for SGH-6 and SSH-6 Shotgun Mic Capsules
  • SMC-1 Stereo Mini Cable for DSLR Cameras
  • AAA Batteries x 2


  • Directional 3-Capsule Shotgun Microphone
    The included SGH-6 mono shotgun microphone attaches directly to the 10-pin Zoom mic capsule input, no cables needed! It features three internal mic capsules to produce a supercardioid polar pattern that delivers focused directionality across the frequency spectrum. Step back from your subject to get the right shot, and know that the SGH-6 is accurately delivering the sound of your source.
  • Shockmount Reduces Vibration and Handling Noise
    Supplied with the F1-SP is an SMF-1 shockmount, which was engineered to eliminate unwanted thumping sounds caused by vibrations when shooting on the move. It also grants easy attachment to your DSLR camera.
  • Onboard Limiter and Auto-Level Prevent Clipping
    The F1-SP utilizes an onboard limiter and automatic level control to provide protection against overloading the A/D converters. Record with confidence knowing that sudden volume spikes won’t distort or clip your files.
  • Configurable Recording Settings
    The F1-SP boasts a slew of recording resolutions to choose from—48 to 320 kb/s in MP3 format, or up to 24-bit / 96 kHz in uncompressed WAV format. Also, a pre-record function allows you to capture approximately two seconds of audio before you press the record button, and a low-cut filter attenuates rumble for cleaner voice recordings.
  • Record Direct to microSD Cards
    Maximize portability by recording directly to a microSD/microSDHC card (available separately) for up to 32 GB of storage space. Select MP3 format if you really need extended time and minimal file size, or use the BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility.
  • Audio Interface Functionality
    Alternatively, use the F1-SP as an 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface at up to 16-bit / 48 kHz. Connect it to your computer or iPad, launch your preferred audio recording program, then enjoy the combination of the F1-SP’s sonically solid front end, plus the familiarity and features of your favorite software.
  • Mic/Line Input with Plug-In Power
    The F1-SP can accommodate mic- or line-level signals via its locking 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input. Since it supplies 2.5V plug-in power, you’re free to use common condenser mics such as lavaliers, headsets, and earsets.
  • Zoom Mic Capsule Input
    A proprietary 10-pin Zoom mic capsule input on the F1-SP accommodates Zoom’s line of interchangeable capsules (available separately) in place of the standard mic/line input. With mid-side, X/Y, and stereo shotgun mic capsules to choose from, you can be ready to record music, dialog, or sound effects without carting an external microphone setup. There’s even the EXH-6 input capsule (available separately) if you need dual XLR-1/4″ combo inputs.
  • Headphone/Line Output with Volume Control
    A locking 3.5mm stereo output jack with a dedicated volume control enables straightforward routing to your camera, DSLR, secondary recorder, or headphones.
  • Power for Hours
    To keep up with the pace of on-location production, the F1-SP can be powered via two included AAA batteries or a Zoom AD-17 power adapter (available separately). Even at 24-bit / 48 kHz, you get plenty of recording time—up to 11 hours with lithium batteries or up to 6.5 hours with alkaline batteries. All-day shoots are no problem for the F1-SP.
  • Multifunction Micro-USB Port
    A micro-USB port on the F1-SP serves several functions. Connect it to a computer for convenient data exchange, or hook it up to an iOS device (or computer) to use the F1-SP as a miniature audio interface.
  • Highly Visible Display
    Day or night, view vital information such as audio levels, recording time, battery status, and more on the 1.25″ monochrome backlit LCD. Intuitive one-touch buttons provide fast, hassle-free operations.
  • Low Profile and Lightweight
    With its minimal profile and light weight, the F1-SP provides a form factor that’s well suited to camera-mounted configurations.
  • Built-In Tone Generator
    The F1-SP has a built-in tone generator for calibrating audio levels between the F1-SP and a DSLR or video camera without the need for an attenuator cable.
  • Sound Markers for Simple File Alignment
    A sound marker function allows you to record reference tones that simplify audio and video file alignment between unsynchronized devices.
  • Auto Lock Inhibits Accidental Interruptions
    The record hold function or hold switch can be used to prevent interruptions to the recording caused by accidental button presses.
  • Includes Extras
    Place the supplied foam windscreen over the shotgun mic to reduce wind noise and protect the capsules from moisture and dirt. A 3.5mm stereo audio cable is included for simple connection from the F1-SP’s output to your DSLR camera’s input.
