Cant brag enough about my Zoom H6. Ive used it on 4 or 5 interviews and film shoots and it makes audio recording a breeze. I give the product a 9 out of 10. The only thing I dont like is when using the shotgun mic attachment on a boom pole, you lose sight of your level meters. If they could produce a cable that could connect to the shotgun mic on one end and the H6 body on the other, this would allow for the mic to be on a boom and H6 body to be easily monitored and adjusted. I was also happy to receive the shotgun mic and find that it comes with a free hairy windscreen.
