Hello All,

I'm looking to purchase a field recorder. I'm almost a beginner to shooting 16 mm filming, but have a lot of experience with home audio recording as well as Video shooting and editing. I do have mics, but they are rather heavy. I would like the field recorder to be battery powered (I guess that's obvious) and have the ability to record @ 24 bit.

The two I've been looking into are:

M-Audio Micro track II

and

Zoom H-4

Does anyone have a recommendation or thoughts on the two above?

Thanks,
T

OK, I'm going to reply to myself :)

FYI, I purchased a sony PCM-D50. It ran about 500, plus 50 for the wind screen.

So far it's seems really nice. It's very intuitive, which helps if you're shooting alone. The quality (24 bit if needed) is also nice and it comes with a USB cable to go to you computer.

Thought I mention it in case anyone searches for this subject.
