The Zoom F8 Field Mixer and Recorder is designed for professional music, filmmaking, and electronics news gathering (ENG) applications. Engineered to be carried on a shoulder strap or in a bag, the F8 includes 8 analog input channels with lockable XLR/TRS combo jacks that provide +75 dB maximum input gain and support for +4 dB inputs with an EIN of -127 dBu or less. The F8 can record up to 10 tracks simultaneously or up to 8 channels when recording at 24-bit 192 kHz resolution.

The F8 allows the user to record two channels of separate files at lower volume levels to provide for backup recordings - typically used when unexpected loud passages distort the primary recording. An all-new limiter provides up to 10 dB of headroom, and the F8 supports SMPTE time code input and output. The included outputs include a powerful 100 mW + 100 mW headphone jacks as well as the MAIN OUT 1/2 and SUB OUT 1/2 jacks for sending audio signal to a video camera or other device while monitoring with headphones. 

The unit's internal mixing enables flexible routing and the inclusion of individually selectable +24V/+48V phantom power ensures you can use your favorite condenser microphones. 

Power to the recorder can be supplied in one of three ways: via AA batteries, an AC adapter, or a 9 to 16V external DC power supply. Two SDXC card slots can be used simultaneously for recording even longer sessions as well as using the card slots as a card reader when connected to a computer via USB. 

As a USB interface, the unit can be used in a 2-in/2-out configuration as well as an 8-in/4-out audio interface (driver required for windows). A built-in slate mic allows you to make voice memos and the unit's slate tone can be used to confirm specific levels, and the F8 supports Zooms interchangeable microphone capsules.
