The H6: Zoom's Response to the Tascam DR-60D

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Tascam announced the DR-60D field recorder that is designed with the enthusiast filmmaker in mind. I thought it was one of the three most interesting products at NAB 2013 but, no sooner than the buzz from NAB had began to die down than Zoom returns fire with the announcement of the Zoom H6 at the Musikmesse fair at Frankfurt.

Details are limited but we can see that Zoom has designed the H6 with video applications in mind. Most excitingly it has four on-board, XLR/TRS inputs, expandable to six with an optional, interchangeable XLR/TRS head and it will record all six channels simultaneously and each channel has a dedicated, hardware, level control knob. That's making the Tasam Dr-60D's mere two XLR inputs seem a little paltry by comparison. And that could be Zoom's intention: you might have been just about to order the DR-60D but Zoom's press release will give you pause - if you can wait a little longer, being able to record 6 channels from XLR at once could be worth your patience.

Why would you need so many channels? Options. With 6 channels being able to lav and boom all the talent on set will give you so many more options back in the edit bay. Hopefully you'll be able to input one mic into two channels set at different levels; one dialed back for safety but both from the same source.

But this is just speculation as Zoom haven't announced a shipping date or price yet. If the H6 is adopted by enthusiast filmmakers with as much enthusiasm as they've taken to the H4 over the past few years then Zoom will have another huge hit on their hands. Of course this depends on them pricing the H6 correctly and getting it out to the market before Tascam do any serious damage to Zoom's fan-base.

  4. một số người lao động tại tổ chức Kim Quý đang làm cho công tác nhúng trái sầu riêng vào hóa chất ép chín trái cây thì bị chóng mặt, mẩn ngứa, cay mắt, nôn ói.

    Sau lúc công an huyện can thiệp thì chủ cơ sở mới cho đoàn liên ngành vào. song song, điều khó hiểu là khi liên hệ mang các người bị dị ứng giá hoá chất PAC thì họ đều từ khước tiếp xúc.

    Về lý do tại sao phải dùng hóa chất ép chín trái cây, ông Luận nói do trái cây không cộng chín một lúc nên phải sử dụng thuốc để cho trái chín đều, đẹp.
