Description

I would say that there is some hissing in the background, especially with Rode NTG-2, that needs a ton of gain, but with NTG-3B that does not require as much gain, you don’t hear background hissing. I prefer the quality of the Zoom H5 preamps over any USB interface I tested up to this point, but that is because I also find it more handy, as usually I’m not filming with my computer turned on, and I want to avoid using something like an iPurifier or iDefender from iFi too, as it would complicate my setup if recording. The remarkable depth and clarity of sound achieved by the stereo mic design brings additional realism and depth to HD video. This allows users to select the microphone capsule that best suits the situation - making trade-offs a thing of the past. Inputs 1, 2, 3, and 4 have balanced 3-pin XLR connectors whilst input channels A and B have 3-pin XLR/unbalanced 6.

The H5 can operate in two different modes—choose stereo for two-track stereo recording, or multitrack for four-track recording (in either stereo pairs or individual mono tracks)—and it captures audio in the two most commonly used file formats: WAV and MP3. You can change the gain by using the two wheels at the front, for the XLr inputs, or the wheel on the XY mic module at the top, to change its gain. Optional accessories: PCH-5 protective case, SGH-6/ SSH-6/ EXH-6/ XYH-6/ MSH-6 microphone/input module, ECM-3 extension cable, HS-1 hot shoe mount, WSU-1 windscreen, APH-5 accessory pack.The Zoom mic capsule input on the H5 accommodates Zoom's line of separately available interchangeable capsules, which can be swapped out as easily as the lenses of a camera. You’ll also find your channel selection buttons, as well as the usual Play/Pause, Record, and Stop options. Likewise, if you want to do a lot of recordings and interviews on-the-go, then the H5 is rivalled only by its big brother, the Zoom H6. The handheld microphone comes with an XLR cable that attaches from the bottom of the mic to Input 1. Internal processing allows the user to employ low-cut filtering, compression, limiting or effects to the audio, whilst a chromatic tuner and metronome are handy features for some.

Recording directly to 16MB to 2GB SD card, 4GB to 32GB SDHC card, or 64GB to 128GB SDXC card, the H6 records up to 24-bit/96kHz in BWF-compliant WAV format, or 48 to 320kbps in MP3 format. Each input has its own gain control knob, and the XYH-5 capsule also provides an additional mic/line input through a ⅛" mini phone jack. The design of the XYH-5 mic capsule allows the H5 to handle up to 140 dB SPL — equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away! Batteries containing pollutants can be identified by the symbol of a crossed-out wheeled bin and the chemical symbol (Cd = cadmium; Hg = mercury; Pb = lead) of the metal essential for classification. Record continuously for about 10 hours with just 2 AA batteries or extend your recording time indefinitely with the optional AD-17 AC adapter.This has nothing to do with Zoom H5, and it will be constant regardless of what interface you’re using.
