Critical Metering at a Glance
Metering is absolutely critical when you're recording in the field, and in poor-visibility environments, the Zoom F8's high-visibility meters and displays are real lifesavers. The 2.4" LCD display, which is switchable between full-color and monochromatic modes, provides you with enough resolution to keep track of all of your input settings, timecode, battery power, master levels, and more.
LED channel meters
Each input on the Zoom F8 has a six-segment LED meter to help you optimize signal levels while avoiding clipping. The meters are adjustable, so you can make them dim enough to stay subtle in dark locations or bright enough to remain easy to read in full sunlight.
Remote metering via iOS
The Zoom F8 has built-in Bluetooth for connecting to iOS devices. That means you can turn to your phone or tablet for metering audio levels, from anywhere within Bluetooth range.
