Forget about clipping, forget about gain, and forget about hassle; just power on the Zoom F2-BTultracompact portable field recorder and press record to capture clear, distortion-free dialog in an instant for your next video shoot, podcast, vlog, or interview. Plus, it empowers users with app-based control and wireless timecode synchronization in addition to everything the standard F2 model has to offer.
Low-Profile Lapel Mic with Locking Connector
Attach the included lavalier microphone to your subject with the supplied mic clip, then connect its 3.5mm plug–equipped cable to the input of the F2-BT; the locking connection inhibits unintended disconnects. The microphone's omnidirectional polar pattern delivers consistent audio pickup from all directions, yielding dependable voice capture even as the subject turns their head or the microphone changes position. Also, three windscreens are supplied for easy reduction of light wind noise.
Automatic Distortion-Free Audio
The F2-BT utilizes 32-bit float recording technology to capture intensely loud signals without overloading the A/D converters and bring in extremely quiet sounds without overwhelming noise, all without requiring any gain adjustment from you. Record with confidence knowing that you can just connect the microphone and start recording to attain crisp, clear dialog.
High-Quality Recording Settings
The F2-BT boasts two high-quality recording resolutions to choose from—32-bit / 44.1 kHz or 32-bit / 48 kHz, both in mono uncompressed BWF (Broadcast Wave File) format. No data compression means that no quality is lost in the creation of the audio files. Use the onboard 80 Hz low-cut filter to reduce rumble and bass buildup in your recordings.
Record Direct to microSD Cards
Maximize portability by recording directly to a microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC card (available separately) for up to 512GB of storage space.
Mic/Line Input with Plug-In Power
The F2-BT can accommodate mic- or line-level signals via its locking 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input. Since it supplies 2.5V plug-in power, you're free to use common condenser mics such as lavaliers, headsets, and earsets.
Headphone/Line Output with Volume Control
A locking 3.5mm stereo output jack with dedicated volume up/down buttons enables straightforward routing to your camera, DSLR, secondary recorder, or even headphones for easy monitoring.
Power for Hours
To keep up with the pace of on-location production, the F2-BT can be powered via two AAA alkaline, Lithium, or NiMH rechargeable batteries (alkaline included), a Zoom AD-17 power adapter (available separately), or a USB Type-C battery pack (available separately). With up to 14 hours of run time on AAA batteries, all-day shoots are no problem for the F2-BT.
Bluetooth for App-Control or Wireless Timecode
The F2-BT features Bluetooth built in, no dongles needed. With the free Zoom F2 Control app, you can wirelessly start/stop recordings, display battery levels, adjust output volume, control low-cut filtering, and more from your mobile device.
You can also pair the F2-BT with an UltraSync BLUE device by Timecode Systems (available separately) to receive and write timecode to recorded files, making the F2-BT a handy recorder for professional audio-for-video applications.
USB File Transfers and Settings Editor
The F2 Editor lets you adjust settings, format SD cards, and more from your Mac or Windows computer. Since the F2-BT has a USB Type-C port, simply connect it to your computer via a USB cable (available separately) and launch the editor. The USB connection also makes it easy to transfer files to your computer.
The F2-BT is equipped with a high-precision internal clock (±0.5ppm) to avoid audio and video syncing issues.
Low Profile and Lightweight
With its minimalist profile, the lightweight F2-BT attaches neatly on belts and waistbands, or can be slipped into a pocket so the recorder can be easily concealed.
Free Editing Software
The Zoom F2-BT includes a free download license for Steinberg’s WaveLab Cast software, which helps you finalize your project with an array of comprehensive editing, mixing, and refinement tools.
