Super good deal on a portable digital audio recorder I find myself using all the time. Right now you can get an additional -$30 OFF a (Blue color) Zoom H1 Portable Digital Audio Recorder (found here).

The small form factor of the Zoom H1 can also be used as a handheld microphone (tip: add a Foam Windscreen) during interviews, or attach an AspenMics H1 Clip to use as a belt worn audio recorder paired with a Lav Mic. Many people will use this technique during weddings to mic up the groom and officiant. Often this is better than working with a wireless audio kit if you're concerned about audio drop outs or wireless interference issues.


With the latest Zoom H1 firmware installed, you can also use the H1 as a USB Audio interface with your computer. For computers that don't have an easy Mic input, it's a way to use your Zoom H1 Stereo Mics as your computer mic or whatever mic you have connected to the 3.5mm input on the H1. This can be used for podcasting or recording Screen capture videos and tutorials.
