If you have been reading any of the other articles at The Best Voice Recorder you will know that the Zoom H4N Portable Digital Recorder
is a great piece of kit for recording research interviews, podcasts, or your kids first off key notes 🙂
This week I am on leave from my day job, and have a great opportunity to see how the Zoom H4N
goes recording the sounds of nature. I will be at Hamilton Island, which is in the Whitsunday Islands off the Queensland Coast in Australia. A beautiful part of the world. I am going to put the Zoom to the test to capture the sounds of the beach, the rain forest, the birds in the sky and a lot more. Not only that, I will capture some of the ambient sounds around the island. The goal is to see how the ZoomH4n handles different ambient sound recording scenarios.
Whilst I would love to be recording with microphones like the Rode NTG2 Condenser Shotgun Microphone, on this field trip I will be simply putting the Zoom H4n’s built in stereo microphone goes in the wild.
I will post the results and sample recordings from the trip once I am back!
