Key Info
Pinpoint accurate recordings, in a compact and rugged box. The Zoom F6 Field Recorder is a powerful tool to have when on set or when out making recordings.

Modern recording technology

Get the best recordings you can. The F6 features modern 32-bit float recording technology. This allows you to capture a range of different sources accurately, regardless of how loud or soft they are. Using this technology along with dual A/D converters makes the F6 ideal for the busy film set. It allows you to record explosive or subtle sounds at full audio quality without touching the gain knob.

The F6 is equipped with six professional-grade preamps which feature an ultra-low noise floor. Great for capturing those quiet sounds. The noise floor sits at -127 dBu EIN, and has a high gain of up to 75 dB. On top of this, you also get selectable mic/line levels for each input. This makes the F6 an incredibly powerful location sound device.

Record anywhere

Thanks to its incredibly rugged design, the F6 can be used to record anywhere. It is a very compact unit and this adds to its resilience to the elements. It's great for recording audio regardless of location. Easy to carry because of its size, and safe to use in most places. You'll always want to bring the F6 in your kit bag

Always in time, always sounding great

Always be in sync with the rest of the crew. The precision time code is accurate up to 0.2ppm so you will never be out of time with the team. Ideal for those hectic recording sessions or for film work where accuracy is key.

Never miss a beat with the incredible Zoom AutoMix tool. This allows you to constantly monitor the action in front of the camera as it automatically adjusts the sound of your mix to match the ambient sound around you. Giving you tighter audio files - making the guys who work in post your best mates

iOS wireless control

Using the F6 is extremely easy thanks to the F6 F control App for iOS devices. With this bespoke app, you can monitor signals, adjust levels, trigger transport controls, enter metadata and more. All from your iOS device. Just hook your phone up and use the touch screen to control a range of parameters.
