I've searched the Forums and still not sure what I need or what I should get

I want something that is approx size of a cellphone, with a belt clip that I can take to car shows, drag races and shop tours
I do not want to take a pad and pen and be constantly up and down between pad and camera
I would like to be able to take some type of a recorder from a clip on my belt, press record and say what I just took a pic of
I won't be using it on every pic but the ones that need an explanation
I purchased a Zoom H1 and I don't think its clarity on the playback is very good
Suggestions ?
Thanks in advance
Mach

Do you mean the quality using the built-in speaker isn't very good? Did you try using earphones?

Pretty much any smartphone now a days can do this for you. I use my iphone sometimes to do this and you can get a lav mic for it too for better audio capture. For longer captures I use a little sony digital recorder with a lav connected to it. Thatll record literally for days straight on two AAA batteries.

No, but the reviews arent that good. Id go with a Sony personally. They seem to be the best rated and most popular. I bought this one earlier this year: LINK (external link)though its not available anymore. I really liked that this one one plugged into a computer via standard mini USB port it showed up like a regular old USB drive and thus I could use it with any OS and many other devices. I also went with this Lav mic: LINK (external link)
Maybe try looking at this model: LINK (external link) or a bit more: LINK (external link) or on of the others here: LINK (external link)

Yea thats soo cool too. I wish Canon would give that feature to all their bodies. Ive always loves that about 1d/1ds bodies.

I use the Olympus LS-10, often with an external mike plugged in (either one clipped to my collar or with a shotgun mike while doing video). It was recommended by National Geographic photographer Bob Krist in one of his OP columns, and I've found it to live up to his claims and more. I'll even just leave it recording as I talk into it throughout a day while shooting - with 8 GB on-board memory and taking SDHC cards, you've got plenty of recording time.

Not sure where the 'reviews aren't that good' comment comes from, about the Olympus VN7000. Many different sites on the web with user comments left about the VN7000, and generally the comments are positive.

The biggest con expressed by those posting one-star reviews is the lack of computer/USB connectivity to download the digital files...the way I look at it, there was no way to download files recorded on the microcassette tape recordings either.

Great sensitivity, and over 1200 hours of recording, and there is a built in folder structure so that you can more easily sort your recordings into categories...one folder might be for recording exposure information, another folder might be for comments about the locations of the photos, etc. I bought mine as a refurbished unit for $18...hard to go wrong at that price!

I was just searching for a voice recorder unrelated to photography, and I'm pretty much settled on this one: http://www.amazon.com …DEOE0&colid=3H5​LRX20WOEUJ (external link)

Last night I purchased an Olympus VN 7200
It was a toss up between Sony and Olympus but the store rep said they have more Sonys come back for poor quality and not working than they do with the Olympus line
Thanks to all for your comments
