Great for travel


from West Virginia  -  Experienced

Very useful for conventions and business meetings. The portability with the tripod mount make recording very clear with no distraction upon review.


Great Portable Recorder


from Fremont, CA  -  Experienced

We use this device to record audio for video projects. It has been a great little tool for what we paid. I am always surprised at the great quality we get. This thing picks up everything so be careful when using it when there is a lot of wind. It is small and light so we get really creative with its use. It has saved us on more spare-of-the-moment changes requiring creative audio than I care to count.
