Zoom's handheld recorders have long been a solid choice for capturing audio for video, live events and more. Today, the outfit is ready to ship its latest. The Zoom H6 offers six tracks of simultaneous recording and interchangeable mic capsules for varying the capture method. Those swappable units include stereo X/Y and MS (included right out of the box) with both shotgun and dual XLR / TRS combo capsule options coming soon. Of course, those add-ons work alongside four XLR / TRS inputs for external mics and the like. As we've already hinted, the Zoom H6 can be mounted atop a DSLR or camcorder for capturing live audio to accompany footage -- recording to SD, SDHC and SDXC cards up to 128GB. The unit even sports 24-bit / 96k chops for those who crave high-def tones. If all of that sounds too good to pass up, you can snag the H6 at the usual audio gear spots for $399.99 and take a closer look in the gallery that follows.
