The recorder is as small and stripped down as it can be. I'm attributing any problems to my inexperience with it, and I'm sure I'll be fine. Interesting that the F8 also goes straight to phantom power and meters going. That is certainly not the case with the M10 which I'm used to, which lights up but does nothing until you hit record. Running phantom on powerup is not what I would choose- I'm sure it's draining the battery even when not recording.

Yes.  F8 does has a menu function that saves power by turning off phantom power while playing a file (which I have engaged), but yeah, when simply "idling" it is powered up with phantom sent to whichever channels has it engaged.

Could someone please post some more Zoom F3 samples? All of the links from earlier in this thread have expired.

Cheers!

I'll repost some others but I have to dig for the files on another PC.

Plenty of dynamic range there - including some handy silences in the first minute - kind of them to play that piece to test your system!

A handy link that's certainly somewhere on TS.

A 32 GB SD card can get roughly 20 hours of 2 tracks of 32 bit audio.

Hey there, any thoughts on these for the F3? I am tired of burning up AA's and do not want an external battery for this one. TIA https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08QZ5CTC9?psc=1&smid=ADMAJ1NNAHZG9&ref_=chk_typ_imgToDp

Any reason to choose these over Eneloops? That's what I'm using in my F6.

I was looking at the 3400 mah claim on them. How many hours do you get on eneloopes in your F6 BTW, I have one as well. Thanks

You need to be careful on the lithium-ion rechargeable AA cells. The capacity is shown in milli-WATT-hours (mwh), not the usual milli-AMP-hours (mah) shown on a typical nimh cell. If you do the math, those 3400mwh cells are 2267mah at 1.5 volts. These lithium-ion cells have dc-dc converters in them that maintain a constant 1.5 volts until the cell is almost exhausted, then steps the voltage down to trigger low battery warnings in the device being powered.

Ahh see, so you get a nice steady voltage, with a little less overall capacity, and then your recording stops and you loose everything? haha. I usually have good luck with amazon's choice stuff... My goal with these is to use 1 set of batteries per set of music, and then recharge, repeat..

That's a great tip. Very tricky of them to label them this way to fool the customer into thinking they are getting way higher capacity than they actually are.

I found an interesting review with comparison against the Eneloops.
And a peek into it.

Sorry, I haven't done a rundown test that I can recall. I have done shows that were 2 hours without getting nervous.
