Record clear, crisp dialog in a hurry for your next video shoot, interview, or vlog with the Zoom F1-LP, a 2-track portable field recorder with an onboard limiter and auto-level control providing distortion-free 24-bit audio, and a clip-on lavalier microphone for easy setup. Whereas other F-Series recorders such as the F4, F6, and F8n are centered around a sound bag–ready form factor, the F1-LP is tailored for belt-mount and pocket-friendly placement.

From the easy-to-read backlit display and simple one-touch controls to the long battery life, the F1-LP is properly equipped to serve you reliably, regardless of your audio background. Whether you need long-duration recording for a lecture, professional audio capture for an interview, or a space-saving setup for trade shows and special events, the F1-LP is ready to handle your crucial audio tasks.Plus, its operational simplicity ensures that the F1-LP will never get in the way of your workflow, be it simple, complex, or always changing. You can feel confident using it as your main recorder, a USB audio interface for your dedicated computer or iPad rig, or a backup unit for added safety.

Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

Attach the included lavalier microphone to your subject with the supplied mic clip, then connect its 3.5mm plug–equipped cable to the input of the F1-LP; the locking connection inhibits unintended disconnects. The microphone's omnidirectional polar pattern delivers consistent audio pickup from all directions, yielding dependable voice capture even as the subject turns their head or the microphone changes position.

Onboard Limiter and Auto-Level Prevent Clipping

The F1-LP 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-LP 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.
