Zoom Has announced the new H6 six channel recorder. This looks like a huge upgrade from the Zoom H4 we have been using for years. Here is a rip from the post on Gizmodo.

“The Zoom H4N has clinched the spot of go-to audio recorder for DSLR videographers everywhere. With the announcement of the H6, Zoom may have made the best in class even better.

The Zoom H6’s most interesting new feature is its interchangeable microphone heads that can be mounted to the front of the device, making it more versatile for capturing audio. Other additions include 4 XLR inputs (the H4N had 2), 6 channels of recording, and physical control of levels for easier operation when shooting video.”
