have some money to spend on a new handy little fieldrecording mic and am looking for some tips. I currently own the good old zoom H2 recorder;
…which still works, but I don’t like the time it takes from powering on to actually being able to record, I find it rather slow. Preferably the new mic has similar options, being able to plug in an external mic (like the soundman binaural type of mics) . Also are there any current recorders that use mobile phone-like rechargeable batteries instead of oldschool batteries?
Being relatively small & being able to quickly record after powering up are the biggest pro’s I’m looking for.
Anyone have experience with fieldrecorders, if so which type(s), can you post the amount of time it takes for ‘off to record’ ?
