Zoom F2 Compact Field Recorder with Lavalier Mic

Built for Big Things

An easy-to-use field recorder is an essential tool in the arsenal of any content creator.

From podcasters to videographers, bloggers to journalists and actors and songwriters will benefit from a handy and portable audio recorder to document their creations and work both at home, and on the move.


Main Features

The F2 is incredibly small, but its audio quality will amaze you.

The F2 features 32-bit float recording technology, allowing you to record the loudest audio signals without worrying about clipping. It will also record the quietest signals in beautiful detail. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about setting the gain. Just plug in the lav and hit record.

Once you start your recording, use the F2’s HOLD switch to ensure you don’t accidentally stop recording.

The screw-lock connectors keep your lav plugged in securely, no matter the situation.

With the F2 actors can record and playback their lines to perfect their delivery.

The F2 Editor for PC and Mac allows you to adjust settings, format SD cards and more. Simply connect your F2 or F2-BT via a USB cable and launch the editor. The USB connection also makes it easy to transfer files to your computer.

Whether a stroll through your garden or the whispers and shouts of a dramatic reading, the F2 provides crystal clear recordings.

The F2 can record up to 15 hours (14 hours on the F2-BT) with two AAA batteries.

Record on microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC cards up to 512GB.

The LMF-2 omnidirectional lavalier microphone has a low-profile design, captures high-quality audio, and includes a windscreen and lapel mic clip.

The F2 Field Recorder gives you the option to choose the recording format that works best for your projects. Choose from 44.1 kHz/32-bit float or 48 kHz/32-bit float mono WAV files.


Also Available with Bluetooth Control

The F2-BT comes with built-in Bluetooth. And with the free Zoom F2 Control app the F2-BT can wirelessly start/stop recordings, display battery levels, adjust output volume, control lo-cut and more.

You can also pair the F2-BT with a Bluetooth timecode synchronization device to receive and write timecode to recorded files.


Free Editing Software

The Zoom F2 comes with a free download license for Steinberg’s WaveLab Cast software. WaveLab Cast helps you finalize your project with a wide range of comprehensive editing, mixing, and refinement tools.



WaveLab Cast connects you directly with podcast directories, such as Spreaker or Podbean. You can upload episodes quickly, plus directly create and publish RSS feeds.


Audio for Video

Import your video file and WaveLab Cast will automatically extract the audio. You can use the editing tools to lower unwanted noise, change levels and remove loud sibilants. Metering options allow you to build new tracks, fade in your music, use EQ and compression. Re-attach the audio to the video file using WaveLab Cast’s export functions.


Field Recording

WaveLab Cast supports up to 96KHz audio quality and includes a high-end re-sampler. RestoreRig removes noise and unwanted sounds. You can assemble new files using the snap functions and crossfade options. Once you’re done, export your sound files in any popular audio format.
