About this deal
As one of the other posters mentioned, most mics, including shotguns, are meant for near-by sounds. Maybe a few feet away, even for shotguns. Something you could get from a boom or an on-camera mic pointed at your subject a few feet away.

Boasting compatibility with FLAC format recording, which reduces file size without a drop in quality, the Olympus LS-P4 delivers superb audio fidelity. Equipped with a 3 microphone system, the LS-P4 offers stereo sound, as well as low frequency recording. Delivering 96kHz/24-bit recording quality, with 8GB built-in memory and an SD card slot, the LS-P4 is perfect for a wide range of recording applications. A compact unit, the LS-P1 fits well in the hand and is very light. Despite its featherweight payload, the device is well made and doesn’t feel particularly fragile – but the Olympus CS150 Multipurpose Case will be a good investment for anyone prone to dropping things.The small battery footprint of the P4 was actually a big reason for me to buy this device years ago for outdoor recordings. But the upgraded and now useful remote control app for the P5 is very intriguing and I’m still unsure whether I will upgrade or not. I switched in the low pass filter on the LS-P4, turned the recording mode to manual, turned recording sensitivity up to maximum, level 30, and did my walk at dawn. Connecting the audio cable allows the audio to be recorded via the camera, and monitored accordingly. Are these settings OK, as a starting configuration in using the LS-P4 with the ME66/K6? I could set the recording level on high, but why introduce noise I don't necessarily need - why not see what the external mic can do on its own? They are not cheap (although not as expensive as the Sennheiser MKH competition) but these microphones are a long term investment.

You must have read my mind, because immediately after seeing the recommendation from marcsantacurz about the H4n and H5, I went online and looked at their features and prices. I was immediately wondering about what the H4n Pro had that the previous version did not, and the web descriptions I found were not terribly helpful in answering that question. The information you provided about the pre-amp differences is very important for me to know.

There's no fancy Bluetooth app, and it won’t help you tune your guitar. Instead, every effort has gone into making sure the PCM D-100 captures the best recording possible, whatever the location or the conditions. Preamp circuitry is isolated from its power supply for reduced noise, and levels can be set for each mic. These can be positioned independently too, swiveling 90 through 120 degrees.
Marc and iveljay, thank you very much for your expert advice. It has given me a lot to think about. Different folders can be used to store different types of recording; storing files in the Music folder means you can use the LS-P1 as a handy portable music player if required. The actual recording process is so easy that, once set up, it’s doubtful you’ll be delving too deeply into many options bar the editing ones. The unit also plugs into your computer via USB so file management might well end up being via your desktop. Moreover, the LS-P4 includes a built-in speaker, allowing users to listen to their recordings without the need for external devices. The device is compact and portable, making it convenient to carry and use on the go.
