I do an A/B test on the video, but you have to wear headphones if you really want to hear the difference between the noise floors on the two units. If you can't hear it here because of Amazon's draconian compression, search "Zoom H4nPRO vs H4nSP" on YT for a higher resolution version of this video.
PS - Writing reviews has become an accidental hobby for me, and it always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful (and if not, why.) Also, if you have any questions, clarifications, or comments please feel free to leave a comment below. I usually respond pretty quickly and almost always within 24 hours.
I setup the Kodak Zi8 about 5 feet from the sound source, which is an upright piano... that's me noodling on it. The Zi8 is mounted on a tripod.
About 15 feet away from the piano, I've setup the Zoom H4n recorder. This unit has an XY stereo microphone built into it. It also has the ability to record two inputs, in the form of XLR or 1/4-inch. So, we'll be hearing the built in XY microphone on the unit as well as a pair of AKG 414s which I positioned above the piano, pointing into the open lid.
"Kodak Zi8 Internal Microphone"
Here we hear the internal microphone on the Zi8. Mono, a bit noisy and perhaps a little too close to the piano to capture a clean sound. In any case, this does the trick for capturing an idea, but definitely doesn't cut it if you're looking for high-quality audio.
"Zoom H4n XY Microphone"
Here the stereo image opens up suddenly. This XY microphone which is built into the unit is capturing a very natural, coincident stereo sound. It's a very reflective room, so you hear that, as the microphone is about 15 feet from the sound source.
"Zoom H4n Pair AKG 414s"
Here we're hearing the pair of AKG 414 microphones pointing into the piano. Because the microphones are very close to the sound source, there is significantly less "room" sound. This would be more suitable for a studio recording, while the XY sound would be more appropriate in perhaps a classical or field recording.
"Zoom H4n Mix of XY + 414s"
Here we have the best of both worlds. We have a blend of the direct signal from the 414s AND some of the room sound from the XY microphone. I believe this is the best overall option in most scenarios.
Finally we return to the Zi8 internal microphone to hear the major difference when using external audio equipment. At under $200, I believe the Zi8 does a great job capturing the visual and at under $300, the Zoom H4n does a remarkable job with the audio.
I've only had this less than a week now, and am slowly learning all it's functions and capabilities. There are many sound recorders out there and my research told me that the Zoom was a lot easier to learn than most of the others. It does take a little bit of time to be able to use this, but the results are amazing as far as I'm concerned. The build quality of this machine, and the sound quality it produces far surpasses what I had hoped for.
Battery life is not that great, but I hear the same thing about the other brands of recorders. So I bought the Zoom AD-14A/D power adapter. I think this is a good idea, especially while learning to use it. It gives me all the time I need to explore without fear of draining multiple sets of batteries.
You'll also need an SD card in order to use it. I ordered the SanDisk 32GB Ultra Class 10 SDHC UHS-I card which will hold hundreds of hours of recordings.
I am Very Happy with this product, and having a blast using it!
