I've spent the last 4 months with this guy as well as my Zoom H1 and Sony PCM-M10 in countless different audio environments. I run a wedding videography business so I'm dealing with all kinds of sound issues/challenges on a weekly basis.

This is my go to Microphone when I am on set. Absolutely love this Zoom. Can't go wrong with it, everything is as it says. Very easy to use. I can literally turn it on and it works like a charm. Went to post after using it for the first time and was extremely satisfied with the product..

I thought about getting the H5 for a long time. Now that I finally purchased it and used it, I don't know why I took so long. The quality of sound captured with the H5 using the X/Y mic as well as the shotgun mic simply blew me away.

Confirming Sanjay's statement : it's not good for hot climate places. The rubber surface gets sticky. If it weren't for that, I would rate it four stars.

I am very new to professional audio recording. I just set up a video studio in a home office for my clients. I knew that the native audio on the Canon 6D would not cut it. The Zoom H5 was recommended to my by my friends at wistia.com.

I've always used an H4n and have always been satisfied. But the surprise when opening the box already begins in the tactile sensation, the texture, the position of the buttons, everything has improved a lot!

Bought this to simplify my mobile interviews and still deliver quality. Rather than carry, wireless mics, mixer,, etc, this does the job and then some. Great value, quality and easy to carry

I've only used it once so far since I got it, but I already love it so much more than the H4n I used previously. The physical volume knobs are a million times better for making adjustments on the fly... no more clicking noise from the H4n's volume buttons ruining my live audio.
