    I don't think pruning the 3 non-XLR inputs would be a significant space or price saving in Sound Device's eyes.

    And dropping from 3 XLR to 2 XLR? Hmm... boom + 2x lavs is such a common set up, I don't think they'd want to get rid of that either.

    Little known fun fact: the Zoom F4 can also record to Blu-ray disks as well as SD cards! ;-)

    As the new Zoom F4 is "#1 New Release in Blu-ray Recorders" on Amazon, that is a new feature we didn't hear about from Zoom​... that it can record not just to SD cards but to Blu-rays as well! ;-) ha

    That isn't even the oddest thing about this Amazon listing, it indicates the RRP is $799 and won't ship until November 30th! :-o

    Yet Zoom has stated pricing of $650 and shipping in October ( B&H Photo Video Pro Audio​ has expected availability of October 11th), thus I'm guessing that is two more things Amazon got wrong.

    Just got notified B&H has a Zoom F4 for $420 daily deal.

    Pounce on it! Is the golden perfect recorder for any one to start out on, and that is unbelievably cheap.
