tascam dr-07 or zoom h1

Any one use either of these for recording sfx and ambiances for post? Looking for a recorder under $100 to carry around to grab sounds. So far have seen the Tascam DR-07 and Zoom H1.

can anyone vouch for either of these units?

I've been using the Tascam DR-07 for almost a year and have been really happy. I was thinking of either the DR100 or the Zoom H4n, but after I drowned a DR01, got the DR07 as a quick cheap replacement for the 'kamikaze' type recording.

Currently I have taken to slicing a plastic bottle to get a 2 or 3" band to tape to the bottom and that then can get taped onto a boat or moving object as a no cost shock mount.

Wish the stereo image were a it wider.

do you have a DR-07 or DR-08? The windscreens are for the DR-08 model, are they interchangeable?

They make many sizes & I sent my DR-07 to The Windcutters & they made one to fit (at that time they hadn't made one for the DR-07 yet.

It has some elastic & velcro strips so it could be made to fit others.
Check with;
