F2 FIELD RECORDER & LAVALIER MIC.

32-Bit Float Technology In Zoom's Smallest, Lightest Recorder Ever.

For podcasters, videographers, bloggers, journalists and more, the F2 is the perfect audio solution for creators on the move.

AUDIO ON AUTOPILOT.
The F2 features 32-bit float recording technology, allowing you to record the loudest audio signals without worrying about clipping. It will also record the quietest signals in beautiful detail. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about setting the gain. Just plug in the lav and hit record.

PLEASE HOLD.
Once you start your recording, use the F2’s HOLD switch to ensure you don’t accidentally stop recording.

LOCK ‘N LAV.
Screw-lock connectors keep your lav plugged-in securely no matter the situation.

THE F2-BT WITH BLUETOOTH CONTROL.
The F2-BT comes with built-in Bluetooth. And with the free Zoom F2 Control app the F2-BT can wirelessly start/stop recordings, display battery levels, adjust output volume, control lo-cut and more.

You can also pair the F2-BT with a Bluetooth timecode synchronization device to receive and write timecode to recorded files.

THE F2 EDITOR.
The F2 Editor for PC and Mac allows you to adjust settings, format SD cards and more. Simply connect your F2 or F2-BT via a USB cable and launch the editor. The USB connection also makes it easy to transfer files to your computer.

POWER.
The F2 can record up to 15 hours (14 hours on the F2-BT) with two AAA batteries.

STORAGE.
Record on microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC cards up to 512GB.

LAVALIER INCLUDED.
The LMF-2 omnidirectional lavalier microphone has a low-profiled design, captures high-quality audio, and includes a windscreen and lapel mic clip.

RECORDING FORMATS.
The F2 Field Recorder gives you the option to choose the recording format that works best for your projects. Choose from 44.1 kHz/32-bit float or 48 kHz/32-bit float mono WAV files.

FREE EDITING SOFTWARE.
The Zoom F2 comes with a free download license for Steinberg’s WaveLab Cast software. WaveLab Cast helps you finalize your project with a wide range of comprehensive editing, mixing, and refinement tools.

Podcasting.
WaveLab Cast connects you directly with podcast directories, such as Spreaker or Podbean. You can upload episodes quickly, plus directly create and publish RSS feeds.

Audio for Video.
Import your video file and WaveLab Cast will automatically extract the audio. You can use the editing tools to lower unwanted noise, change levels and remove loud sibilants. Metering options allow you to build new tracks, fade-in your music, use EQ and compression. Re-attach the audio to the video file using WaveLab Cast’s export functions.

Field Recording.
WaveLab Cast supports up to 96KHz audio quality and includes a high-end re-sampler. RestoreRig removes noise and unwanted sounds. You can assemble new files using the snap functions and crossfade options. Once you’re done, export your sound files in any popular audio format.
