Full Review Here


Very affordable price

Extremely lightweight

Audio quality surprisingly good

Very straightforward - no complex menus and external controls for everything

Decent battery life

Can power via USB

  Confidence monitor speaker


Looks & feels a bit plasticky and cheap

No case

Plastic tripod socket doesn't feel like it's gonna last long

small buttons for adjusting record levels, transport, etc. are very small & fiddly, and almost impossible to see in a dark environment

Available now at  around £79/$99
