Kodak Zi8 + Rode NT4 = under 500 dollar top quality audio + HD video filming .

Zoom H2 + Rode NT4 = top quality audio + some cooler audio functions like low-cut filter and limiter and surround sound recording (using internal mics).

Zoom H4 + Rode NT4 = you can use phantom power on your Rode NT4, eliminating the need for the 9V battery in the mic.

I've been using the Zoom H4, and lately an iPhone 3g with FiRe/Mikey
both gives good results.

It's a shame the new (and old) Mikey's don't work with the iPhone 4. :(

I'd go with the H4 (cheap on ebay); good quality.

it would be my bad luck using a black field recorder. i could see now the las vegas police shooting at me for pointing the H1 at someones face.

More than likely the new ipod touch wont work with them either
