Zoom H2?

Has anyone used the Samson Zoom H2 yet? If so, what's it like?

Hi Renton

Take a look at this thread about the Zoom H2.

I have just recieved mine, not yet used as I have ordered the Mono & Stereo Omnidirectional, Giant Squid Mics, to use with it.

Thanks Wayne, that was helpful. Sounds like quite a nice little unit. Might get one.

Weddings with the H2

For weddings, the H2 is PERFECT. I couldn't handle the interferance that I would randomly experience with wireless. Wired is better, though you cannot monitor the sound. I use 2 H2s with 2 Giant Squid lapels and a Rode shotgun for backup (and music). Now I only need to carry one type of battery and I don't have all this receiver garbage to work with.

Here's the kicker: when I go to the reception I screw on the handle to one of the H2s, and I've got a "wireless" microphone to pass around the tables! Genious!

I do have to sync afterwards, and you will need to buy several 2gb+ cards, but these will become the standard for weddings in no time.

The onboard microphone isn't bad either if you just want to have something that'll pick up all the sounds in the room.
