Zoom has repackaged this component as the new H6 All Black. This is only a color change in the actual recorder, as well as a change in accessories. The classic H6 recorder includes a mid-side mic, as well as the standard XY mic. It also includes a sponge windscreen, USB cable and case. We have only one of these left in stock. This is your opportunity to buy the H6 with extra mic and accessories at a lower price than the new AB model.
The H6 is Zoom's flagship recorder, offering substantially improved low-noise, high-gain mic preamps and the ability to record up to six channels simultaneously. The H6 includes a unique swappable mic cartridge assembly and includes X/Y and mid-side cartridges. This configuration is perfect for videography. Attach the H6 to your DSLR with a hot-shoe mount, connect the highly-directional shotgun mic cartridge for zooming in on surface sounds while connecting one or more hydrophones to the XLR inputs for simultaneous underwater recording.
Hydrophone compatibility: We recommend using our H2a-XLR hydrophone to take advantage of the H6's low-noise, high-gain preamps and to provide the best connection integrity. Our standard H2a will also work using the mic input on the included X/Y mic module and may be useful in applications where other channels are used, or where there is not adequate phantom power available to supply all input channels (only relevant if using other microphones; you can run 4 H2a-XLR hydrophones simultaneously. If you would like the best of both worlds, you can buy our H2a-XLR with the the XLR > 3.5mm adapter and use either input.
The H6 has a massive list of features that we could not cover effectively here. For complete details, images and videos, visit the Zoom H6 manufacturer's web page.
