If you're a musician, a journalist, or a videographer, you can put a handheld recorder to very good use. Recording your band's rehearsal or an interview for a radio show or podcast is as easy as pressing a button with the Zoom H5 Handy digital recorder. The shock-mounted stereo condenser mics capture clear, detailed recordings up to a whopping 140 dB SPL. Additionally, there are inputs for other types of mics, like a 1/8" input for a lapel mic, or an XLR input for a dynamic or condenser handheld or stand-mounted mic. Plus, you can even remove the H5's microphone capsule and replace it with a shotgun mic or XLR/TRS input capsule.
