Zoom Handy Recorder H5
Four tracks of simultaneous recording and interchangeable mic capsules make the H5 flexible and powerful enough to meet the evolving needs of todays creators.
The design of the XYH-5 mic capsule allows the H5 to handle up to 140 dB SPL equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away! And to keep your levels under control, the H5 offers compression and limiting.
The H5s rubberized housing and shock-mounted microphones minimize vibration and handling noise, while a low-cut filter helps eliminate wind noise and other kinds of low frequency rumble.
The H5 utilizes the same high-quality, low-noise preamps as our flagship H6, ensuring great-sounding recordings in all sonic environments.
Six interchangeable mic capsules that can be swapped out as easily as the lenses of a camera
EXH-6 DUAL XLR/TRS COMBO CAPSULE: Plugging in the optional EXH-6 Dual XLR/TRS Combo Capsule gives you two more inputs. This allows you to connect up to four discrete signals from external microphones, instruments, mixers, or portable music players to fully realize your audio vision. It’s all the power of a professional recording studio, right in the palm of your hand.
SSH-6 STEREO SHOTGUN CAPSULE: The SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun capsule adds a super-directional mic for capturing sounds directly in front, plus a bi-directional one for capturing ambient sounds. It’s ideal for location recording, allowing videographers and content creators to capture dialogue or narration with the center microphone and mixing in the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone.
XYH-5X/Y CAPSULE: The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle. These mics are housed within an advanced shockmount that employs rugged external mic wires and rubberized material to minimize vibration and handling noise, making the XYH-5 ideal for location videography and live broadcast/podcast applications. The design of the XYH-5 also allows it to handle extremely loud sounds140 dB SPL to be precise (equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away)making it perfect for capturing the sound of live rock concerts and for electronic news gathering.
MSH-6 MS CAPSULE: Welcome to “Mid-Side11 recording, a whole new level of precision in your ability to shape sound. The MSH-6 Capsule contains dual mic elements – a forward-facing, unidirectional mic (the “Mid”) and a side-facing, bi-directional mic (the “Side”). Together with the H5’s onboard MS decoder, they capture a fully mono-compatible stereo image that can actually be adjusted after recording – ideal for film, video, and television projects.
XYH-6X/Y CAPSULE: The XYH-6 capsule employs two angled high-quality unidirectional mics which are sensitive to signals coming from the front but less to signals coming from the sides and rear. X/Y recording is optimum when you want to cover a wide area yet still capture a strong center image, making it the perfect choice for all types of live stereo recording.
SGH-6 SHOTGUN CAPSULE: The optional SGH-6 Shotgun Capsule adds a professional-quality, highly directional microphone to the H5( creating an ideal audio setup for film, video, live theater, and ENG (electronic newsgathering) applications. Three elements combined with digital signal processing inside the SGH-6 give you the highly directional pickup power of a conventional shotgun mic in a unit only half the size – ideal for recording dialogue and narration with no intrusive mic in the scene.
Pre-Record: The Pre-Record function captures and saves two seconds of audio before you hit RECORD — perfect for unexpected starts.
Auto-Record: The Auto-Record function allow the H5 to automatically start and stop recording at predefined sound levels.
Backup-Record*: The H5s Backup-Record function automatically records a duplicate set of L/R tracks with 12db less input gain. This audio safety net helps to protect your recordings.
*44.1 and 48 kHz WAV files only.
Inputs and Outputs
Ins: The H5s XLR/TRS combo inputs can handle both mic- and line-level signals for microphones, wireless receivers, mixers, keyboards and more. Each input has a dedicated gain control knob. The supplied XYH-5 capsule also provides an additional mic/line input via a ?” mini phone jack.
Outs: A Line Out with adjustable volume allows you to send audio from the H5 to the input of a camera or other device without the need for an attenuator cable. In addition, there’s a separate headphone output with a dedicated volume control. You can use both outputs simultaneously to route audio to your DSLR while monitoring with headphones.
Recording Times and File Formats
Record continuously for over 15 hours with just 2 AA batteries or extend your recording time indefinitely with the optional AD-17 AC adapter.
The H5 also works as a USB audio interface for your computer or iPad** complete with a Loop Back function that makes it easy to add narration to music playback.
*Apple Camera Connection Kit required.
