I'm looking at getting something to use as a 'body pack' as opposed to using a wireless setup when using a lavalier microphone.
I've looked into Tascam DR-08 vs. Zoom H1 or other.
I found a comparison of these two here (great blog for video):
I've seen various information recommending both of these recorders along with the negatives including build quality and battery problems of the H1.
I thought that that the Zoom H1 with it's protective cover over the mics and the offset angles are great pluses for this device for this use.
What are people's thoughts on ultra compact digital recorders? Any suggestions or recommendations?
