I’m planning on getting an advanced recorder — I’m currently using the H6 — and wanted your opinion about the Zoom F8’s performance when compared to the 702T. I’ve worked with Sound Devices recorders before and I find the sound quality extraordinary, but still didn’t have the opportunity to test the F8. Taking into account that the price difference between both is huge, would the F8 be a good investment or should I go with the 702T instead?
So, I have no experience with the F8 – there are a few reviews online including this one with demo recordings http://www.soundandrecording.de/equipment/fieldrecorder-klangvergleich-zoom-f8-und-h4n-vs-sound-devices/
Regardless, I think what you need to ask is:
What recording channel count do you think you will need now and in the future?
What type of source are you recording – will the digital limiters be a negative on the F8?
