Hauppauge, NY – (April 11, 2011) – Zoom’s H4n Handy Video Recorder is now available at all Best Buy locations. Focusing on improving the user experience at every level, H4n is Zoom’s most sophisticated handheld recorder to date. Available now at all Best Buy stores for $299.
H4n offers built-in X/Y stereo condenser mics that allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Audio quality is improved through its new digitally controlled, high-quality mic preamp and the ability to use internal and external mics simultaneously for 4-channel recording. A large LCD screen, a more intuitive interface and onboard reference speaker will take the user’s recording experience to the next level.
In addition to musicians and songwriters, H4n has become the “go to” audio solution for filmmakers and video professionals looking to record high-quality audio while filming HD video with their DSLR cameras. H4n is the only recorder that makes it possible to capture audio with its two XLR inputs and get incredible stereo imaging with its onboard mics, all at once.
