The Zoom F4 propels your film's sound to a whole new level. With 6-input and 8-track recording, super-low-noise mic preamps, and time code with pinpoint accuracy, the F4 offers Hollywood sound at an indie budget. By putting high-quality sound front and center, you've changed how audiences experience film. That's why we created the Zoom F4. So professional quality sound is always within reach.
Super-low-noise microphone 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/192 kHz. Its impressive audio specs include an extremely low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB), with +4 dB line-level inputs.
Zoom AutoMix takes some work off your plate, automatically adjusting the levels of your mix and helping you reduce any ambient sound. Now with this smart software, you can focus on what really matters – capturing a well-balanced mix.
TCXO Time Code:
For precise audio/video syncing, the F4 utilizes a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy—even when powered off! 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 Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters:
Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters add a 1-millisecond delay that enables the limiters to “look ahead” anticipating clipping before it’s recorded. Limiting can be applied to each of the 6 channels simultaneously at full resolution, with 10 dB of headroom and controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.
Zoom Interchangeable Mic Capsules:
Use the proprietary Zoom capsule input to connect any of the available Zoom mic capsules—such as the SGH-6 Shotgun Mic Capsule or the XYH-6 Stereo X/Y Mic Capsule—to add an on-board microphone to your F4. The optional ECM extension cable allows for remote positioning of all capsules.
An LCD For All Lighting Conditions:
An easy-to-read 1.9-inch white backlit monochromatic LCD display makes the F4 suitable for all lighting environments— from low light to direct sunlight. It also performs well in harsh conditions, like dusty and hard-to-see environments.
