I have been working on film sets as a sound recorder and boom operator for some time now and I've been using different location recorders such as Edirol R44, Sound Devices: 664, 644, 633, 702 etc and I have to say that I'm really pleased with the zoom F8 as it has tons of features and provides quality sound at a small price. The overall build quality and ergonomics of the product are pleasing as the recorder feels solid in hand and in use. The only negative aspect is that the knobs for gain control are really small and can be hard to handle. On the other hand the bluetooth control together with the Ipad app works really well and gives control over the gain and audio levels. Another aspect to point out is that the limiter is digital not analog as it is for the sound devices 633 for example. This means that when the preamps are runned hot you get this digital crackling noise which is distorting the audio. It would not be a problem, as you don't have to overcompensate the preamps but as I have worked with units which have analog limiters for example the 633, I know the difference between them. Another question is the power source as I am currently looking for an alternative power source using the hirose connector. The battery life with the AA batteries is relatively short and does not work on movie sets, especially when phantom power is activated. There are some options considering NP-Batteries to look into regarding this matter. But overall a great little recorder as it is WAY CHEAPER than other recorders on the market with the same specs.

Great sounding recorder but not a mixer

As I've had only bad experience with Zoom in the past I thought that while all the reviews for this unit were too good to be true I was still skeptical and thought that I should give it a try but if it wouldn't suit my needs in terms of sound quality I'd send it back right a way. But I didn't!

It's a great and compact recorder not meant for everybody. I do nature recordings where I just put the thing into its place and let it record for long periods of time. For that purpose it's great. Sound quality really is excellent (it's not my 1st recorder) and so are its preamps, which have more gain than my Sound Devices preamp, while not being any noisier.
A great feature is dual channel recording, where you can record the same input with 2 different trim levels - in case something loud happens you can mix it later. Another nice feature is a possibility to play back all 8 tracks simultaneously and a possibility to mute and mix them while playing back.

Downsides:
- Digital trim and fader pots, which make it useless for sensitive live mixing (film production) - perhaps they will do something about it in the next fw update. And of course digital limiter is pretty much useless - but for my needs it's ok, because I don't need that and dual channel recording really seems to be a better option.
- Another thing which disturbed me at the 1st use is that not all its buttons have backlight, so it is quite impossible to find some buttons in the dark if you don't know the device by heart. But as there isn't many it's easy to get used to.
- There isn't possible to add markers while recording. It splits the WAV file and each recording is in its own folder, which make it even worse. It's quite annoying to glue the recordings into one file later on.
- Zoom should make a proper Li-Ion internal battery for using instead of its clumsy battery box.
- All the shortcuts are used with STOP button. While recording one really needs to be careful.
- The app for controlling the unit only works with newer iOS devices (not just with newer iOS itself), Android devices are not supported.

As they're still developing the device they should add couple of more features. Also it would suit for musicians too if it were able to play back and record at the same time for instance. And a possibility to stop certain tracks while recording on others.

Haven't used its timecode or used it as an audio interface - so I can't comment on that.
