Here it is! The Zoom H2 fits in the palm of your hand and offers you pristine audio, plus an array of miking options. Once you use it, you won't believe how truly handy the H2 is for getting incredible sounds, easily!
Quality built-in mics and signal processing
Recording an exceptionally realistic stereo image can be a challenge with a conventional mic pair. The H2 has dual X/Y configured stereo mics facing front and rear. This is ideal for capturing a wide and contiguous stereo image. There are two sets of mics - one pair facing the front and one pair facing the rear - allowing you to record at 90 degrees from the front or 120 degrees from the rear. You can even use both two pairs to produce a four-channel recording with 360 degrees coverage. After recording, the built-in 3D panning function gives you full control over the front/rear/left/right balance. Or use commonly available authoring software to create 5.1 surround recordings. No other portable digital recorder has this ability.
Zoom's H2 records on SD media cards up to 4GB and ships with a 512MB card. In addition, you can set the file format to the widest variety of bit rates available for increased recording time. Record at 96kHz (DVD quality) 48kHz (DAT quality), 44.1kHz (CD quality) and MP3 up to 320kbps. Variable Bit Rate (VBR) data format is also an option for the best optimization of memory. The H2's onboard USB interface lets you manage your files by moving them to your PC or Mac for storage and editing with your favorite Digital Audio Workstation software. Or use the H2 as a USB mic to record audio directly to your computer.
Time stamp and markers
The Zoom H2 also has a time stamping feature so that you can organize by date and time the recording is made. This feature is especially useful for electronic newsgathering or any application where real time data is needed to coordinate production. You can also place markers where you need them in the audio for quick and easy locators.
