Coincidentally, I just bought a digital recorder for
Cinematheque to use to record artist presentations and
intverviews. I'm sure the Zoom H4 that others a
recommending but we actually had one for a while that
was kind of a pain in the neck--it was great but was
too complicated for an untrained person (say, an new,
short term intern) to use intuitively. So I bought the
Zoom H2 (and returned the H4). We'll see how I like it
when it arrives but a friend (who does interviews)
highly recommends it.

product description/review:
good amazon reviews too of the H2

But I don't know much more. I still like mini-disc for
personal recordings, fwiw.
