Great little recorder - even though it's a USA import,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zoom H2 Handy Recorder (Office Product)
Bought this to for use while making a video recording of a couple of local am-dram productions (to record the output from the sound desk while the camcorder microphones pick up the audience noise/ambience).
Having downloaded and read the owner's manual prior to purchase - it does exactly what I was expecting. I found it very easy to set up and use.
Microphone is quite sensitive to handling noise at high gain so do as is suggested in the owner's manual (attach to the mic stand adapter and hold that in a gloved hand).
Display is pretty small, though all except the bottom line shown in reverse white on black (battery status and recording time remaining) is adequately readable.
Only two gripes:
i. Unit supplied was a USA import so had 110V power supply. Planetgizmo included a 240V to 110V step-down transformer - works fine but quite hefty and hums a little.
ii. It's a pity that Zoom didn't include the facility to charge NiMH batteries inside the unit.
