Off-camera audio has many advantages. This device has greatly enhanced the production quality of my productions! The Zoom H4N digital audio recorder is packed with features! For me, it was the two XLR ports with phantom power capabilities that sold me on the device! I can supply my shotgun microphone with phantom power via the Zoom H4N and capture professional-sounding audio. The user interface of the device is really nice! It’s easy to navigate the menus and transferring the recorded audio to a computer can be accomplished using a USB cable (not included) or by removing and inserting the SD card into a computer.
