    Hey Jez, The F8 could not on release, but there was a firmware update that added this capability. Samuel

    Hey d r, Yes. The 4 pots can be switched between gain and fader. Samuel

    Hey Vivid Lizard, Mostly accurate here. 2 comments There is a headphone volume knob on both the F8 and F4. And time code accuracy when you turn the unit off, same as the F8. It's not so much a bug but a feature these units do not have.

    Mike, We have no official list of serial numbers but yours is outside the possible range. Thank you

    This issue is hardware related and only affects early serial numbers. It was addressed early on in production. If anyone experiences this issue we are more then happy to replace the unit with a new one. We can even send out an advanced replacement

    Everyone, new fiormware. Mainly bug fixes https://www.zoom.co.jp/F8_update System version 2.10 for the Zoom F8 has been released. The firmware update includes the following : ■ Function Update 1. Added phantom power setting options to continue supply of phantom power in playback mode. ■ Bug Fixes 1. Following SD card performance test, sometimes SD card shows NG status without reason. 2. Changes to Ubits mode settings do not display correctly after restarting the F8. 3. The time stamp of recording file displayed on PC/Mac is shifted to incorrect time depending on the time zone setting of PC/Mac. 4. Noise is generated when changing from recording mode to playback mode. 5. When repeat connections and cut-off’s of Bluetooth’s iOS device occur, sometimes the F8 cannot connect to such iOS device. 6. Response of the F8 becomes slow when the following operation is repeated : Press Rec key – press Pause key and cancel it – press Rec key again to start a new take.

    Hiro, Is the sound recorded to your files or do you hear it just through the headphone? Does it sound like stepping or grounding?

    The F8 should not ever overwrite a file. I suggest doing a test to replicate the recording process as closely as you can and confirm you do not have any issues. If it happens again please email me so we can investigate further. Hopefully there was some other human error at play or it was a one time occurrence. If you would like to discuss further your can also email me. sgreene@zoom-na.com

    Hey Tom, I hear your concerns with the notes and reports. I will pass along. The pot use that you describe would be interesting. Haven't heard that from anyone yet. Thank you

    Hello, Thanks for the thoughts. These are all great comments. I will pass them on for consideration as we look to improve the F8 further! You can edit note Metadata on past take in the Finder menu. Thank you

    Hello, If the battery will output 17V at any point then you cannot use it with the F8. Will it melt? I hope not. It could cause damage though. Thank you

    Hello Hiro, I would like to hear more info about his problem. Can you please call our office (631-542-5270) and ask for Samuel. Thank you

    Davide, The first update was a couple of necessary releases. We continue to work on improving the firmware and adding features we are getting feedback about. Stay tuned to our website and social media for more updates. Thanks Hey John, All great questions. I'll answer best I can. 1. Engineers choice. We have noted the interest in a tape or camera return. Obviously won't show up on the F8 but we will note for the future. 2. Same as 1. The outputs that are there are custom route-able. 3. This is a hardware spec. We have noted the want for the option for future products. 4. You can record WAV on SD 1 and MP3 of SD 2. 5. I would suggest going for the F8 now. We just shipped out more units, and there will be much more on the way before March. Thanks Samuel

    Hello Fritz, The F8 does have a software gain pot lock. Pressing the STOP button and any PFL button will lock all gain pots. This cannot be done during recording. Thank you
