Zoom really should un-bundle the mics.

I decided to order one of these and give it a try first-hand.

Looks like a cool little recorder. Would be awesome if someone made a PFA with KCY connector for the expansion module on the top. Talk about a tiny rig!

The extension module doesn't supply phantom.

Just received the F1 today.  I should be able to test it out at a show soon, but for now here's some photos to show the size of it compared to the Roland R-05 and the CA9200.  If the F1 works out and I decide to keep it, I may dremel off the rails to make it even smaller.  Even with those rails, though, the thing is tiny.

(Gold star to anyone who can identify what these things are resting on.)

Really not as tiny as I'd like. Remember the SONY MZ-RH1? Released 12 YEARS ago (!) That was MINUSCULE by comparison and I'll bet good money it still sounds better than any "small" handheld portable recorder today.

What baffles me is why SONY never made a SD or microSD version in the same format factor, they could have fit an enormous LI-ION battery instead of the MD.

Other than the guide rails, the Zoom is smaller.

Zoom F1:   2.5 x 1.3 x 3.1" (W x H x D)

SONY MZ-RH1: 3.45 x 0.68 x 3.45 inches (W x H x D)

The Zoom has an easy to read screen too. My only complaint is the gain control which only goes up in a circular loop and then goes from highest gain back to lowest and the loop starts over. Not sure what they were thinking with that bit of firmware.

Then it really is tiny. Can't really tell from the pictures, it just looks so... bulky!

Trust me, even with the rails it is tiny.  Even having read about it and seen pictures online, I was still surprised by the size when I opened up the package.

Zoom F1:   2.5 x 1.3 x 3.1" (W x H x D)


Don't you mean W x D x H?
No, My arranged order is different but accurate as posted. I rearranged the order on Zoom as its as listed to show the 2 devices in the same order. You can check the Zoom on B and H and the SONY on Amazon. However it appears they measured the Zoom laying down so to speak.

Here is the exact paste from B and H on the Zoom:
Dimensions (W x D x H)   2.5 x 3.1 x 1.3" /

Has anyone attempted to remove the rails yet?
