Zoom Puts the Hand in Handy

New digital recorder smallest yet from the company

Digital recorder maker Zoom has released its smallest recorder yet in the Handy Recorder line, the H1.

The H1 weighs only two ounces and is the size of a candy bar; it retails for $99.

The H1 mounts two microphones in an X-Y pattern and records up to 24-bit/96 kHz. It uses microSD cards as its recording medium and ships with a 2 GB card. Power comes from a single AA battery. An optional USB/AC adapter allows for wired operation.

A USB port facilitates downloading files. Other features include built-in speaker and low-cut filter. MP3 recording is also available, up to 320 kbps. A small back-lit LCD screen monitors performance. A basket protects the mics.
