Focus on the Scene

When you’re working in the field or on set, sound levels can fluctuate often and quickly. The F3 allows you to adapt to your scene without having to set the gain or worry about clipping. In post, you’ll be able to work with your capture, regardless of extremely low or high levels.

Award Winning Audio

Featuring the dual A/D converters and low-noise preamps found in our professional F-Series recorders, the F3 guarantees high-quality recordings in any setting or situation.

Battle Tested

The F3 is built with durable side bars, standard tripod mount and slide-resistant rubber feet ensuring that you can mount it on your gear or hide it in any scene. It’s sturdy metal casing and locking XLR connectors is designed for use in a variety of environments.

Wav Watching

Monitor your recordings with seamless accuracy as the F3 displays your audio as real-time waveforms.

Record & Listen

The headphone output allows you to keep an ear on your recordings, plus a line output enables you to go to your camera or other gear.

30' of Control

Versatile control options give your production more flexibility than ever. Stay out of the shot and record from a distance of up to 30-feet (10m) using the F3 control app for iOS and Android

Audio Interface & Streaming

Connect your F3 to a computer or iOS device via USB as an audio interface and record or stream up to two channels in crystal-clear 24-bit/96 kHz resolution. The loopback function allows you to combine your computer’s audio with the F3 inputs to complete the sound for your stream.

I really like it. Small. I got two good microphones now as well and look at it all together as an upgrade on my handheld tascam DR05. Muc better quality of recordings. More versatile in selecting and positioning microphones.
