    Hi,

    My cel. phone does already many things, including
    recording the interviews that I do. Up until now,
    no lectures - sitting at a distance in a conference
    room, during a lecture or a work meeting - have been
    recorded with my cel. phone, an iPhone 5C.
    However, I would like to start recording lectures
    and to continue doing (face to face) the inter-
    views that I do, that vary in time and can last up to
    seventy five minutes.

    Should I continue using my phone, or should I
    start using something like this:

    or this:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1116977-REG/zoom_zh4nsp_h4nsp_handy_recorder.html

    or should I stick to my phone ??

    Thank you in advance, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    P.S.

    Hi,

    My recordings with iPhone are very good!
    Am I missing anything for not having any
    of the zoom recorders provided in the links??
    Is the quality better with the recorders??

    I don't have a camera yet that can film,
    is that when I'll need a recorder ??

    Thank you again, kind regards,

    You can find digital recorders MUCH less expensive than those you posted that will do the job just fine. I bought a handheld stereo recorder that we use to record our band practices and it only cost me like $59 and change. For recording lectures it would be more than adequate.

    Get a Rode iXY mic for your iPhone and you'll be away laughing.

    Yes, the Tascam DR05 or the Zoom H1 are both nice little recorders.
